Predator drones and the murder of innocents
is a short video that is currently on Brasscheck TV
. It begins with a clip of the President making a joke about drones. In view of the fake clip of Mitt Romney quotes
that appeared recently, it would be prudent to ask, is that genuine? A quick search on YouTube confirms it is indeed genuine
The Brasscheck video poses more questions than it answers, and there are many more similar videos on the same site, most of which should probably be tagged caveat emptor
. It is a matter of record that the United States uses these drones to summarily execute alleged terrorists, and we know what Congressman Ron Paul thinks of that
. Sadly, his appears to be a lone dissenting voice, in spite of the large number of innocents killed.
However, the most disturbing thing about the drone war against alleged terrorists in Pakistan is that it not a continuation of something that started under Bush, but that it began three days after Obama took office. Candidate of change, or plus ça change plus c'est la même chose
