David Petraeus, the CIA Director, is attempting to vastly expand the CIA’s fleet of killer drones. The stated purpose for this increase is to “bolster the agency’s ability to sustain its campaigns of lethal strikes in Pakistan and Yemen and enable it, if directed, to shift aircraft to emerging al-Qaeda threats in North Africa or other trouble spots, officials said.”
The CIA is wanting to add up to 1o more drones, which would be a a 30% increase in its inventory of these lethal killing machines. They would be used to murder more and more innocents in the Middle East and Africa. Every single one of these immoral and aggressive drone attacks breeds more hatred of the U.S. Every attack increases the chance for retaliation, or blowback. Every attack creates more terrorists.
These attacks are done without any respect for due process, and on the say so of the president alone, any American, whether overseas or at home, can “legally” be the primary target. These drones are used for targeted killings, or murder, of anyone desired by the White House or to complete the covert operations of the evil CIA.
The reasoning for this expansion quoted in this article in the Washington Post, is that the “political turmoil across the Middle East and North Africa has created new openings for al-Qaeda and its affiliates.” The problem here is that al Qaeda was created by the U.S., is supported still by the U.S., and the problems occurring in the Middle East and Africa have been caused, and are being fully supported, by the U.S. government and its military. In other words, this turmoil has been planned, and is being affected purposely by the U.S. This is the desired agenda!
While the CIA’s fleet of drones is tiny compared to that of the military, its operations are mostly very secret. The more capability the CIA has to affect covert killing operations, the more dangerous it becomes. The CIA doesn’t answer for much, so higher profile murders can be accomplished with less scrutiny by the CIA than by other government agencies. Petraeus, who in the past had access to the huge drone fleet of the military, obviously wants more capability to murder those on secret kill lists now that he is head of the CIA.
If the CIA is successful in its attempts to beef up its arsenal of armed drones, it will most likely seek to establish more “secret” bases. Any expansion by the CIA, especially in its ability to murder more people, is an affront to all that is right. It is an assault on liberty, and it is lawless beyond the imagination of most. If the CIA can secretly kill anyone it chooses to overseas, it can and will do the same on U.S. soil. The secret kill lists prepared by the animals in the executive branch and the CIA do not discriminate as to location or country, and those cretins care not about “collateral damage,” whether they are in the Middle East or in your neighborhood!
