'True Cost of Covert Killings' Demanded as Drone Strike Victims Speak Out

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

Faisal bin ali Jaber wants answers—and an apology—from the Obama administration for a U.S. drone strike that killed members of his family.

So sickening. Drones -- so you don't have to see the blood yourself and can distance yourself from the carnage and devastation. Sickened me when Obama joked about the drones once when asked about boys that would soon be interested in his daughters. He laughed and said something like, "One word -- Drone" and then laughed some more.

Victims of drone attacks suing the US is why Obama does not want the 9/11 report pages made public and victims suing the Saudis.

There was a report that came out a while back. That said for every bad guy they kill with a drone, either 9 to 10 innocent people died. This is pretty f**king sick and evil. And don't think for a second people. That because we allow this evil to take place in our name over there in some foreign land. Someday soon these monsters will be doing the same thing here.

He will get no answers and the USA will continue slaughtering the innocent around the world because......We can. Military supremacy allows the USA to engage in wars of aggression as directed by AIPAC.


#8

Maybe he can get together with Hillary and share some sadistic laughs over a beer about the people they're responsible for killing.


#10

What better represents American Exceptionalism, bravery and sociopathy from beyond range.

From the article:

'...The Guardian exposé comes as the White House is expected to reveal how many people, including civilians, the U.S. has killed in drone strikes since Obama took office....'

ALL of the victims of the US drone strikes have been civilians. If the US were at war with another country and the victims were members of that nation's armed forces, they would not be civilian casualties. But such is not the case.

Drones banned in London for US President Barack Obama's visit ( http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2016/04/20/drones-banned-in-london-for-us-president-barack-obamas-visit/ )

This on the same day that survivors of President Obama's drone / crowd killing (signature strikes) have filled a lawsuit against the US government. How ironic.

While President Obama often likes to dissemble about "fighting terrorism" and "targeting terrorist leaders" those at the other end of the drone bombs have a different perspective that the US media fervently ignores.

Perhaps the greatest crime against humanity that President Obama is guilty of, is that he has firmly established the practice of drones strikes and crowd killing for the foreseeable future. (Source: http://foreignpolicy.com/2016/04/05/obamas-most-dangerous-drone-tactic-is-here-to-stay/ )

Further, President Obama has creating an atmosphere in which military personnel willingly take part in the such war crimes. President Obama has helped ensure that most US citizens support the crime against humanity of using algorithm to target and kill unknown individuals. The reality is that President Obama is terrorizing massive numbers of people around the world and killing many innocent men, women, and children.
