Mediaite Tears Apart Team Obama's Pathetic Justification For Killing 16-Year-Old American With Drone Strike


After being cornered by activist reporters at Lynn University, former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs offered a misleading defense of the Obama administration’s use of a “kill list” to determine which target should next be evaporated by a drone strike, and offered a truly pathetic justification for the drone killing of an innocent 16-year-old American citizen.

How Can Anyone Be Sure

Whether or not there were Americans involved when over 3,000 have been killed by drones, many unintentional targets?


"REPORTER: How will Obama defend his secret ‘kill list’ at next week’s debate?"

That is dumbest question on earth. He won't have to defend this at the debate because the person he is debating loves the kill list. The question will never come up.

Why are we still pretending that Romney cares about this? He has said over and over that he supports these policies.

These people who kill the innocent

They love and do the will of their father, the devil!
When we see that truth, we then understand how heartless and wretched these people are.

Their day of reckoning WILL come, for they cannot hide from the Almighty!

I'm Surprised Gibbs Didn't Do What Obama Did With Ben Swann

And evade with "We don't talk about such national security matters."

This is a major feat on the part of We Are Change. Aside from Ben Swann, no one has taken this kind of question anywhere close to the President.

It reveals how corrupt most of our media has become.

Here's a report on how the drone strikes miss their targets. Who are the real terrorists?:

I've noticed how the rats all try to dodge Luke. Keep them on their toes Luke!

though they could prepare their questions a little better, I could hardly fault them for going out and taking the risks that they do in doing the job that the MSM refuses to.

I only wish I had more money to support them, because they are definitely worth it.

The internet and the video camera, combined with brave people willing to go out and ask the tough questions is probably the only resource we have at this point.


that lousy (american citizen) kid should have had a better dad. It ain't our problem that we killed 'em.

Such bastards we are.

So that makes this the one

So that makes this the one incident of the President assassinating American citizens that we know about. So the government has told us about every strike of this nature? Or are there more stories like this one that we don't know about yet?

"Where liberty is, there is my country." -Benjamin Franklin


there's tons more. Over 3,000 people have been killed from the drone war. The stories are heart wrenching. Although, I'm not sure about whether other US citizens were victims.

any links

or referances to these?



The # of civilians killed has been reported by human rights organizations across the globe for 4 years. I guess you only hear about a drone strike the day it happens, and never listen to the fact finding stories that come out weeks after.

Don't ask people to spoon feed common knowledge to you. Anyone who is actually paying attention would already know this.

calm down

I don't doubt it, just thought if there were that many someone could reference a few of them? I don't watch TV so maybe I missed it, but apparently I'm not the only one, "RC Liberty" asked the question

Get a better dad --

-- or we kill you!

Is this true

At first I thought the father and son were killed togther but apperently it was 2 different strikes, is this true?

I haven't read the article yet,

But I can confirm that they were killed in separate strikes that were at least a couple of days apart.


Anwar al Awlaki was killed, and a couple weeks later Obama sent another drone to finish off his teenage son, Abdul Rahman al Awlaki.

Joseph Stalin said "behind every problem there is a man. No man, no problem" and "the apple does not fall far from the tree". Why wait for abdulrahman to grow up be a "terrorist" when you can just murder him while he is still a child?

Tu ne cede malis sed contra audentior ito

Regarding what you asked...

Why wait for abdulrahman to grow up to be a "terrorist"...

We already know the pre-emptive mindset of those in power, so I doubt they limit their diabolical thinking to those 18 and over.

I recall seeing a program many years ago where discussion was along the line of criminals' childhood and common factors, and the conversation struck me even back then as if they were essentially looking to profile potential/future criminals early on.

It made me wonder if child fingerprinting programs that purport to be about protecting children, such as "ident-a-kid" for example, might instead be about "ident-a-future criminal".

I have never heard of one instance of a missing child being safely recovered by these child fingerprinting programs. So if minds behind the scenes in law enforcement are already in essence looking at ~profiling~ pre-criminals, why wouldn't they want to pre-emptively fingerprint them, too?

... or in the case of the 16yr old killed in the drone strike, to just pre-emptively kill them?

OH the INSANITY of what Gibbs said about the boy...

"I would suggest that you should have a far more responsible father"

HOW, exactly can a child "have a far more responsible father"? Where would anyone even BEGIN to justify or rationalize such an absolutly ignorant statement?

Good Job Luke. You are doing a MUCH better job than I ever expected. Luke remains calm and respectful and is making our rulers and their minions look like the complete idiots that they really are.

If it wasn't so serious and litterally life and death we are dealing with here....the words coming out of these statists mouths would be just hilarious

Obama/Romney to kids: If I

Obama/Romney to kids: If I don't like your parents, I will kill YOU with my flying robots.

Maybe they think people can

Maybe they think people can choose their parents? No, no! I know, Obama thinks the government can choose your parents before conception!

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.
