I can hardly wait to hear President Obama asked the same questioin Rick Perry was asked: "Do you sleep well at night knowing that your Predator drone attacks have probably killed some innocent people?" You will remember how Rick Perry was asked a similsr question because Texas is willing to execute vicous murderers who have been ADJUDGED deserving of the death penalty. In the case of terrorists, President Obama is the judge, jury and executioner. There has been no trial.
Now let me be clear. I SUPPORT--as this blog has said many years ago--the Bush "doctirne" that we need to find terrorists whereever they are and KILL them. Bush and I regard this as a WAR for civilizatioin, where we have to take the war to our enemies. The BEST thing about the Obama Pesidency has been that Obama has pursued the War on Terror. One of the WORST things about the Obama Presidency has been the HYPOCRISY: how Obama has effectively pursued--or allowed our miilitary and intelligence experts to pursue--the War on Terror, while Obama has UNDERMINED that same policy. Then there is the HYPOCRISY on the left--the worst hypocrites to ever walk the Earth, on two legs or four--in wanting to lead CHEERS for Obama, as killer, while President Bush was REVILED for this sort of thing. Now SOME of the left has stayed consistent here. For example, the leftist ACLU has SUED tos stop these drone attacks. But the mainstream media, especailly, has acted like the HYPOOCRITES they are (comparing how they have reacted to Obama, as killer, in comparison with Bush as killer). That does not even get into the hypocrisy of being against the death penalty, with due process, on such cases as that Connecticut home invasion with murder and rape. Yep. I would be glad to throw the switch on those murderers (on the electric chair, as lethal injection is too godd for them).
It is Obama, and Obama supporters, who are asking us to give "due process" to terrorists, at the same time Obama is killing them without any process at all. Thus, you have the absolutely ridiculous Obama Admministration idea of reading MIRANDA RIGHTS to terrorists captured on a foreign battlefield like Afghanistan. I can't help wondering if Osama bin Laden had his Miranda rights read to him. I truly hope not. It is Obama who is against "enhanced interrogation", while EXPANDING the policy of killing terrorists throughout the world, without any due process and even if they are in a foreign country. This is the kind of thing that the left in general, and the mainstream media in particular, CONDMNED and RIDICULED with President Bush. Hypocrites all (or almost all--referring to the ones who are perfectly wiling to excuse Obama--as one of the "good guys"--wbut who would froth at the mouth if a Repubvlican were doing this sort of thing). And it is Obama who has supported these mixed messages himself, along with undermining his own policy of KILLING, by having his Attorney General talk about how America has to stand up for due process and the "rule of law", even as to terrorists. Thus, it is OBAMA who wanted to trly international terrorists in civilian courts, rather than military courts. There is no dubt that the mixed messages, as is true of Afghanistan and Iran, have undermined the good parts of the Obama policy.
Again, SOME on the left don't like this hypocrisy. As stated, the ACLU has fought against the drone attacks, and a good many ofn the left don't like them. However, for the most part, they are unwilling to really CRITICIZE OBAMA. Thus, I heard a CNN anchor ask an Obama defender about "innocents" being killed in these drone attacks, and tamely accept the (disingenuous) answer that fewer "innocents" are killed than one might think, but that intelligence concerns prevent disclosure of full information. Let me put this as bluntly as I can: MORE "innocents" are being killed in Predator drone strikes than are being killed by the death penalty (certainly per year, and probably EVER).
What abut the despicable, leftist AP? Well, there was at least one article, and tI hthink more than one, which referred, rather disapprovingly, to the conclusion that the Yemeni Predator strike showed that there are now NO BOUNDARIES as to Obama as KILLER. In other words, we are asserting the right to KILL these people wherever they are, regardless of boundaries. But we already know that the despicable AP is RACIST (see last week's article about how the RACISTS at the AP had the gall to transcribe Obama remarks exactly as he gave them, without "cleaning them up").
Thus, it is clear that the left is nervoius. They KNOW that they are hypocrites. But they are simply unwilling to abandon Obama, even as they get restive about Obama maybe sinking THEM.
Therefore, we have the partisan left, especially the mainstream media, trying to CHEER DEATH in order to get Obama reelected. This is more direct CHEERS for death than that Republican debate audience to the information that Texas has executed 234 peoiple in Rick Perry's term as governor. That debate audience was cheering the TEXAS POLICY of encorcing the death penalty--NOT particular deaths. Obama supporters are cheering particular deaths, like celebrating right after an execution (which death penalty supporters don't generally do). Where are all of these crocodile teas, from these dishonest hypocrites, abut how "death is a somber thing", and we should not be "bloodthirsty".
There are no more "bloodthirsty" people than Obama, and Obama supporters, celebrating his SUCCESS at DEATH. "Bloodthirsty" me, of course, is gald to support bloodthirsty Obama in this extension of the Bush policy that terrorists should not feel safe AnYWHERE., and that we are engaged in a WAR for civilization.
P.S. Now many wonder how Obama could have said that America has "gone soft". Has Obama really shown himself to be such a "tough guy" that he can say ordinary Amerians have "gone soft"? But these people, like the racists of the AP, do not fully appreciate Obama. Yes, he gives the impression of "leading from behind". But this drone program shows he is a KILLER. Further, this blog carried the SCOOP (never denied or contradicted, even by any comment to this blog) that President Obama insisted on PERSONALLY going with the navy SEALS on the raid that killed bin Laden. There is even a rumor that it was Obama who pulled the trigger--cold-blooded killer that Obama is--on the gun that killed bin Laden. This blog can now break another SCOOP, from the usual excellent anonymous sources. It was President Obama who PERSONALLY supervised the drone attack that killled those three terrorists, including that American born cleric, in Yemen. You can understand how a man like this Obama, who will ANONYMOUSLY go on a dangerous mission to kill bin Laden, would think that the rest of us Americans are SOFT.
