'A Dangerous Low': Trump Ignores Deadline for Reporting Civilians Killed by US Drone Attacks

'A Dangerous Low': Trump Ignores Deadline for Reporting Civilians Killed by US Drone Attacks

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

The Trump administration on Tuesday flouted two major deadlines for disclosing the number of civilians killed by U.S. military forces: one public report that was mandated by an Obama-era executive order and focused on drone strike deaths; and one report to Congress that is supposed to detail all civilian deaths tied to U.S. military operations.

Given the US Governments propensity to lie about the number of civilians killed by US drone strikes, maybe Trump feels any such “reports” would in fact be “Fake news”.

“… he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed…”
—US Constitution, Article II, Section 3.

Non-combatants is nothing but an euphemism for innocent men, women, and children. WHO ARE THE TERRORISTS?

They say that Trump does not read well, so his version is probably that he shall faithfully execute any law that is an anathema to his dictatorial powers.

And again another reason to dash the Duopoly to the depths of Hell.

How any rational minded individual can support these two parties Evil is beyond sanity.
