The Obama administrations & Pentagon's assassination "program" is right out of the Zionist/Israeli terrorist playbook. Their subversion of our nation's 'leaders" and Congress to notions/actions in war are at odds with any/all common norms of decency, military honor, and political advantage - are we the war-criminal Israeli extremists? - apparently yes.
The "enemy" must be created and maintained/grown, reviled by a subservient media, keeping for-profit wars and conflicts cooking, how better than to kill family members and tribal leaders, AKA "militants" with drones to grow a steady stream of justified hatred for America?
Israeli extremists/settlers use conflict to mask/hide its objective of total possession of all of historic Palestine in their twisted racist mythology and hatred. The US MICC makes billions/trillions in profits and yes-mens (and womens) military careers and promotions are assured - military funding steals the future from our civilian nations needs - a recipe for the destruction of any nation that has lost its moral compass! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military%E2%80%93industrial_complex
American military leaders of good conscience and moral compass have been cashiered out of the services to shut them up - any that did not agree with the fascist/racist for-profit war policy were silenced and chickenshit sycophants promoted to their places.
An American military man of actual honor was Marine Major general Smedley Butler, twice reciepient of the Cong. Medal of Honor, who wrote "War Is a Racket", his wisdom and clear vision should be required reading for all.
