DRONES ARE A TOOL, not a policy. The policy is assassination. While every president since Gerald Ford has upheld an executive order banning assassinations by U.S. personnel, Congress has avoided legislating the issue or even defining the word “assassination.” This has allowed proponents of the drone wars to rebrand assassinations with more palatable characterizations, such as the term du jour, “targeted killings.”

When the Obama administration has discussed drone strikes publicly, it has offered assurances that such operations are a more precise alternative to boots on the ground and are authorized only when an “imminent” threat is present and there is “near certainty” that the intended target will be eliminated. Those terms, however, appear to have been bluntly redefined to bear almost no resemblance to their commonly understood meanings.

The first drone strike outside of a declared war zone was conducted more than 12 years ago, yet it was not until May 2013 that the White House released a set of standards and procedures for conducting such strikes. Those guidelines offered little specificity, asserting that the U.S. would only conduct a lethal strike outside of an “area of active hostilities” if a target represents a “continuing, imminent threat to U.S. persons,” without providing any sense of the internal process used to determine whether a suspect should be killed without being indicted or tried. The implicit message on drone strikes from the Obama administration has been one of trust, but don’t verify.

There is a mountain of reading @ TI for all you Obomber lovers, thank goodness for whistle-blowers!

Maybe there is a slight hope of defeating this Neo-Fascism being shoved down our throats despite their attempts to cover up their evil tracks.

    Breaded and fried up a bunch of boneless chicken thighs, made home made dumplings and broccoli for the dumplings. Jill had to work for the per diem folks, got here around 1:00. We caught up with Fear the Walking Dead and The Walking Dead.

    Then there was a sound on the driveway, then a knock on the back door…one of our oldest friends stopped by on his way home to the Detroit area from Up North. It was so nice to see him and his new wife. They’ve been married for a few years now but we never see them so we don’t really know her.

    They didn’t stay long then we finished up The Walking Dead and Jill went home. Feeding Bob now, wrapping up the clothes washing and I’ll be going out for a walk shortly. Cold out there now. Had to wear my winter coat and hat for my walk yesterday, it will be the same tonight.

    I don’t trust Governor Snyder and his merry band of repukes in Lansing. They’re having a fight with the computer company that sets up the Secretary of State offices. Since they stopped what they do, lines may grow at the Sec of State offices. To me, seems like a way to start the plan to privatize our department of motor vehicles, which is not called that in Michigan.

    We’ll see.
