    Pakistan Unhappy Over Reports US Drone Strikes Will Continue
    January 22, 2013 — Leaders in Pakistan are outraged at reported U.S. plans to continue controversial drone strikes against suspected al-Qaida-linked sanctuaries on Pakistani soil. They are calling it "close to a perpetual war," and say it is exactly opposite to what President Barack Obama stated in his inaugural speech on Monday.

    Even if they do throw the family's cases out, the ACLU has another shitload of cases against Obama, the administration, and Panetta.

    Hmmm, maybe I should consider doing an amicus curiae for the family's cases. Maybe others should as well.

    Careful, you might make it on Obama's "kill list", too.
