Contradictions abound, but there are always sinister underlying reasons for government secrets. But obviously, there are also nefarious reasons for leaking some of those same secrets, so long as no damning evidence that would harm politicians is exposed. The only reason that there is no damning evidence to worry about due to the initial leaks by the White House about secret “kill lists,” is that the law no longer applies to those who occupy that residence.
Obama refused requests sought under the Freedom of Information Act by the New York Times and the ACLU for information about the “targeted killing” of so-called suspected terrorists. According to the White House, the information sought was denied because “the release of the requested documents would harm national security.” This refusal came after the information was purposely leaked by the same White House, so Obama’s reasoning doesn’t hold water.
According to this story at ABC:
“In a court document filed late Wednesday in New York in response to an ACLU lawsuit, the Justice Department said that “even to describe the numbers and details of most of these documents would reveal information that could damage the government’s counterterrorism efforts.”
“The administration said the information requested is “highly classified,” even though details of such operations have been leaked to the media.”
The bottom line is that on the say so of Obama and his complicit henchmen, any human on earth, including any American citizen, can be assassinated (murdered) at any given time, and at any given place in the world. These killings have been taking place for some time, and have been bragged about by the evil Obama for political reasons. This fact alone should be enough for impeachment proceedings to begin, and for criminal charges to be filed. All those involved should be held accountable, and this criminal behavior should cease immediately.
Also from the above article: “The administration acknowledged public concern about U.S. use of targeted killings, and said it has tried to “set forth for the American people the legal analysis and process involved in the determination whether to use lethal force.”
This statement reeks of an arrogance that is beyond reason. The Obama administration is saying that it is attempting to set forth a “legal analysis” to justify first degree murder without any charge or due process. An admission of this magnitude should shake the very foundation of this country, and should alarm each and every American citizen.
Instead, most will turn their head, and hide behind their so-called “exceptionalism.” This is apathy beyond description, and is a most pathetic display of cowardice without guilt!
