Obombers Evil Killing Machine

1a

Of all the reactions to the deaths of two hostages from a missile fired from a US drone, Congressman Adam Schiff provided the deepest insight into the logic underpinning the endless, secret US campaign of global killing.

“To demand a higher standard of proof than they had here could be the end of these types of counter-terrorism operations,” said Schiff, a California Democrat and one of the most senior legislators overseeing those operations.

The standard of proof in the January strike in tribal Pakistan was outlined by the White House press secretary in the aftermath of Barack Obama’s admission about the deaths. An agency that went formally unnamed – likely the CIA, though the military’s Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) also conducts drone strikes – identified what Josh Earnest called an “al-Qaida compound” and marked the building, rather than particular terrorists, for destruction.

Thanks to Obama’s rare admission on Thursday, the realities of what are commonly known as “signature strikes” are belatedly and partially on display. Signature strikes, a key aspect for years of what the administration likes to call its “targeted killing” program, permit the CIA and JSOC to kill without requiring them to know who they kill.

    The equivalent to shooting into a large crowd blindfolded, you might get lucky, maybe not.

    The indiscriminate use of drones reflects the character of psychopathic leadership.

    Put them away dammit! Any wonder these people hate us?

    Rained quite heavily last night, all night, really makes a racket on this tin building, nothing that good earplugs won’t fix, slept good.

    Installed carburetor on PU, success! Went after the front suspension greasing and brake pad check, all ok, those wheels lug nuts were so tight I leaned on the end of a 2ft long wrench and they snapped loose with a crack sound that echoed between the buildings and sent me tumbling.

    No excessive bleeding was noted during the entire procedure.

    One side note, PU needs to be kept indoors, the keylock on the steering column does not require a key to start, tumblers gone in the lock, theft ready!

    If America is supposed to be a haven for peace and freedom why does it produce more marketable weapons than any country on Earth?

    Someone is lying about the peace and freedom part, more like bombs and bullets, creating plenty of wars to use them in is a side effect, too bad about those dead people, they are them mooslims any way, as long as they don’t show up in MY home…
