So the post office is going to be delivering drones now?

Hellooo, drones!

For months Congress has urged Obama to release a classified Justice Department legal opinion justifying when U.S. counterterror missions, including drone strikes, can be used to kill American citizens abroad.

Keep in mind that Rand Paul thinks it's ok to kill a citizen on U.S. soil if that person robbed a liquor store.

Yawn. Wake me up when the hypocrite hands in his Nobel Peace prize. THAT would be addressing the embarrassing drone issue, in my book.

I wonder how much he had to pay for that Peace Prize, anyway? I mean in terms of future political favors, not dollars.

Or walked out of a liquor store with change. How can a drone "pilot" know which is which?

President Fart is just trying to distract from the scandals, but it won't work. We will stand strong until we get to the bottom of how the IRS unfairly targeted the AP for killing Benghazi.

Same way cops make most such decisions: Skin color and how nice the person's clothes are.

Actually, I am beginning to wonder if Benghazi wasn't friendly fire from an armed drone strike.

Someone actually typed that.

Drones that shoot swarthy people at their targets are the newest weapon in the war on terror.

Well, they're the ones that blocked him from closing it 4 years ago, so... he's right.

To be fair, it was both Reps and Dems.

can't figure out whether these posts represent breathtaking cognitive dissonance or just that freepers have the memory-span of goldfish:

He thinks he's wonderful. Who's gonna tell him? Someone needs to stand up and shout "You're a failure.....the Boston bombing happened on your watch. Where were you and what was he doing during Benghazi on 9/11?" He was running the IRS persecution of conservatives, big Sis was watching returning military and he was spying on James Rosin's parents emails. Good grief...what a pompous ass.
..


He's lost more troops in Afghanistan than I can sadly remember.
God, please hold their souls dear.
 
2013-05-23 02:55:39 PM
Apparently, one of the changes is that the same criteria currently used for targeting American citizens will be used for all targets regardless of nationality. If that's the case, it would be a refreshing bit of consistency.

I have never in my life listened to something so unpresidential as this. He speaks as though his target audience is a class of fourth graders.

He must know the freepers are tuning in.

I just found out that my daughter's Lexile score puts her on par with 11th graders. She will be entering sixth next year. She is a good reader but that says a whole lot more about the US than it does about her.

See because Obama is an out of touch epty suit who did nothing while brave Americans died at Benghazi,  unless he's a murderous and reckless tyrant who kills with impunity...either/or is fine with them

The people who are going crazy about the use of drones should go out, join the military, suit up and walk the streets of Yemen looking for the terrorists.

It will be real safe.
