Obama Pardons Thanksgiving Turkey, Continues Unaccountable Drone Killing

Ahead of Thanksgiving, President Obama traditionally pardoned a Thanksgiving turkey, and although last year’s president-pardoned turkey was euthanized ahead of the holiday, this year’s turkey has a lot for which to be thankful. For one, it isn’t a military-aged male in a Muslim country.

While Obama continues the annual White House gimmick of pardoning a Thanksgiving turkey, many on his secret drone kill list are not so lucky. As The New York Times reported last year, the president maintains a secret kill list of suspected terrorists that has included American citizens and even a 17-year-old girl. This state-sponsored global assassination program does not include any due process, nor does it go through any checks and balances. Obama has declared himself judge, jury, and executioner.
