Yep! Obama is a war criminal too

Obama’s covert drone war in numbers: ten times more strikes than Bush
Obama embraced the US drone programme overseeing more strikes in his first year than Bush carried out during his entire presidency. A total of 563 strikes, largely by drones, targeted Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen during Obama’s two terms, compared to 57 strikes under Bush. Between 384 and 807 civilians were killed in those countries, according to reports logged by the Bureau.

Why do you think Obama said: " we need to look forward?"

Exactly so.
But none of the Oligarchy need worry (including Trump). The Oligarchy always protects itself. We will hear the same 'look forward…" crap from Biden and Nancy when it’s Trumps turn because Biden will also become a War Criminal in his own right.

PS: let’s not forget that Obama executed an American citizen, without arrest or trial

Who were the 4 U.S. citizens killed in drone strikes?
… Of the four, only one of them, Anwar al-Awlaki, was targeted, according to Attorney General Eric Holder in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy.

This will be used as precedent at some point in the future. Are Drone strikes on Americans on American soil all that far off?

“The State Department was criticized last month by leading Democratic lawmakers”…War crimes committed by the USA (AGAIN), and all the D’s can do is “criticize”!?!. Different day. Same sh!t…

Once the fascists are successful at demonizing BLM as American terrorists we can be sure of it!

Military personnel as well as Politicians must be held accountable for their support and direction of War Crimes.

Abuse of power must be treated as harshly as murder.

But the trump regime has no conscience. And they have no right to ignore all criminal activity by the U.S.
How many deaths do we answer for since the 2001 death odyssey?

Today is the 19th anniversary of 9/11 and not one article on CD?

Thank goodness. I was tired of those fifteen years ago.
I was citing (2001 through to today) when we are still killing over there.

The lies are like the stages of grief. First we are shocked at the lies. Then we get angered over them (him).
But only the deplorables are in denial.
