Joe Klein's sociopathic defense of drone killings of children - Glenn Greenwald

"When it comes to justifying the killing of civilians, the only difference between the Joe Kleins of the world and Osama bin Laden is that they're on different sides. To the extent one wanted to distinguish them, one could say that the violence and aggression brought by the US to the Muslim world vastly exceeds - vastly - the violence and aggression brought by the Muslim world to the US. That's just a fact."

Happy Gilmore defense

I think I saw this guy in a We Are Change video as well get asked about this. It's funny because he immediately got irritated when asked, and now he has to play it cool on national TV.

The justification is just pathetic - it's basically the Happy Gilmore defense - "He shouldn't have been standing there!" Funny in movies, not in war.

Partisan Koolaid drinkers on both sides think its A-OK

if their man has his finger on The Military's ultimate Drone Weapon, THE CROSSBOW.

Prediction, one day soon, the political challenger will be Vaporized by a President .... and reported simply as "missing"

And who will I blame? I'll blame all the he REAL GENIUSes out there who REFUSE to THINK and ASK, "WHAT'S the USE for this? And should I be apart of this? Should I assist the STATE in its long term quest for Power? After all, absolute power corrupts absolutely" ....

good article but there is a problem...

the author blames the murder of the innocents on the current administration

the duopoly of American political government, whatever it is, is the same. Controlled by the elite, there is no difference in R's and D's.

the perpetual WARS for profit are extended by the bankers to provide a knockout punch against us. They will steal our treasure while, at the same time, destroying us around the world.

who does this to their "own" country? A traitor. A spy?

Look to those who pull the puppet's strings for whom to blame for the killing of the innocents.
They DON'T reside in either the white house or 10 downing street.

WAR PROFITERS and banksters, one, in the same!

How can one man, be it bush, obombya, or hitler, be given this much power? They are TOLD what to do or, worse, they hear about it on the news just like you and I.

TOLD who the new supreme court justice(s) will be, TOLD to bailout GM and OWN it! TOLD to let Ambassador Stevens die. No one is this stupid on purpose. Least of all, a Nobel Peace Prize winning constitutional scholar. Ya think?

Share the article. The Morning Joe link also was impressive as Joe did not back down and allow the issue to be brushed aside.

Osama Bin Ladin's Manifesto

Bin Laden's manifesto re 9/11, as translated and published in the New York Times, was indistinguishable from President Bush's speeches and justifications for war at the time.

Just sayin'...
