    Secret ‘Kill List’ Proves a Test of Obama’s Principles and Will - NYTimes.com

    So these people are essentially deemed guilty until proven innocent, and even if proven innocent they're still dead. This is how the Obama Administration keeps their "Official" account of civilians killed by their drone program so low: Anybody killed by a drone is automatically defined as a combatant.

    Glenn Greenwald sums it up nicely.

    Why can't Carney "go into great detail" about this since Obama obviously allowed this information to be given to the press in the first place?

    No kidding! Obama using AQ baseball cards to see who is going to live or die makes Bush/Cheney and Rumsfeld line up with Cindy Sheehan.

    Barack Obama has insisted on personally approving a 'kill list' of Al Qaeda terrorists who should be hunted down and executed, according to reports.

    The U.S. president requests that his advisers draw up 'baseball cards' with pictures and biographies that he pores over to see who should live and who should die.

    As part of the bizarre ‘nomination’ process he then retires for personal reflection to work out whether or not to order a drone strike to take them out.


    I think he gets his rocks off on it.

    So the media now knows that the term "militant" means absolutely nothing, but still continues to use it unquestioningly. I know, we're all shocked.

    He doesn't make Cheney look moderate, and I remain disgusted by this.

    Obama went to all the governors he could get to, 2008, and told them public healthcare was off the table, so he signed 2700 pages of private insurer debacle, Obamacare. The Democrats lost the House, 2010, tried to pass CO2 biomass research, which lost, 2012.

    But Obama did kill more people with drones and bust more pot clubs, in four years, than GW Bush did, in eight years. Obama did bail the banks, but he didn't fix how Bill Clinton signed deregulation of courts, energy, and banks, to leave us eating shit.
