Ah yes… arbitrary rule… love it.
According to the New York Times, the administration—faced with the possibility that President Obama might lose the 2012 election to Mitt Romney—“accelerated work in the weeks before the election to develop explicit rules for the targeted killing of terrorists by unmanned drones, so that a new president would inherit clear standards and procedures.”
Until now, President Obama has had the “final moral calculation” overseeing the “kill list,” the existence of which was first revealed in May in the wake of a drone strike that killed an al-Qaida leader.
You see, if there aren’t any clear guidlines, nobody can hold you to account for breaking them. See: Obamacare.
Or you can get a finding you like , see Woo,John.
The folks who sat on their hands in the Bush war years really need to
stop being outraged over military decisions that kill our enemies .
Yes, we’ve had some civilian loss, Democrats actually kill our enemies.
It must kill the Neocons that POTUS has succeeded with their policies.
Just one of the reason that you will have OBamacare, folks beleive in the Presidents competence in national defense (even if you don’t)
And is you equate 4 American lives lost in Bengazi with the 3,000 lives lost on 911 in this country ,that kool aid you drank expired 11/6/12
Deciding when life begins = “above my pay grade”
Kill list = “final moral calculation”
Don’t forget those annoying “bumps in the road”, that annoying Israel/hamas thing, Iran, and…well…the whole middle east thing.
