Obama Administration’s Announcement About US Drone Strike Shows It Doesn’t Know Who Drones Are Killing

Kevin Gosztola

President Barack Obama’s administration announced that a US drone strike, which targeted an “al Qaeda-associated compound” in January, killed two hostages in Pakistan. One of the hostages was an American contractor named Dr. Warren Weinstein, the other an Italian named Giovani Lo Porto. Weinstein was a USAID contractor and Lo Porto was an aid worker.

When you drive a nail into a piece of wood, the hammer doesn't care about the nail or the wood - or your thumb.

Ike put it plainly: "Beware the military-industrial complex," after all, in any crime (or Crime Against Humanity which naked wars of aggression qualify as) astute minds ask: "Who benefits?"

The MIC along with a handful of bankers, energy corps., and a few other corporate allies RUN the place. The proof of THEIR recent profit margins makes their agenda clear.

It's come to that. The "leaders" are figureheads mostly there to entertain. Obama could not possibly believe his own words. By the day, the script becomes more ludicrous.

USAID is a company of really bad actors, often cited as a front for the CIA, also a company of really actors. Cuba, Venezuela, and Brazil have all have had their share run-ins with this douchebag outfit. I'm surprised, with all the bad press it has received, it is still in business.

Obama knows that his murderous drones are killing innocent men, women and children that are euphemistically called " collateral damage" but BO just murdered one of his own a USAID worker that was probably connected to the CIA...and that is the real problem.
