Reporter Asks White House if U.S. Airstrikes That Kill Afghan Civilians Qualify as ‘Terrorism’

REPORTER: I send my deepest condolence to the victims and families in Boston. But President Obama said that what happened in Boston was an act of terrorism. I would like to ask, Do you consider the U.S. bombing on civilians in Afghanistan earlier this month that left 11 children and a woman killed a form of terrorism? Why or why not?

JAY CARNEY: Well, I would have to know more about the incident and then obviously the Department of Defense would have answers to your questions on this matter. We have more than 60,000 U.S. troops involved in a war in Afghanistan, a war that began when the United States was attacked, in an attack that was organized on the soil of Afghanistan by al Qaeda, by Osama bin laden and others and more than 3,000 people were killed in that attack. And it has been the President’s objective once he took office to make clear what our goals are in Afghanistan and that is to disrupt, dismantle and ultimately defeat al Qaeda. And with that as our objective to provide enough assistance to Afghan National Security Forces and the Afghan government to allow them to take over security for themselves...

"that was a damn good question and I'm going to not answer it by answering with this memorized paragraph I memorized for questions like this"

The individual who refuses to defend his rights when called by his Government, deserves to be a slave, and must be punished as an enemy of his country and friend to her foe. - Andrew Jackson

They make me want to puke

They make me want to puke when they talk like that.Do they really think the majority of the people still believe that worn out lie.

They know we know

There is no longer ANY QUESTION that criminals are in control of the US Government. Criminal bankers control our system of money and credit. War criminals control our dept of "defense" and all but a select few members of congress are criminals guilty of insider trading and treason.

I've asked many times...why are members of Oath Keepers, or retired veterans, or some of the HONEST Peace Officers not arresting the criminals?

Because they would die in the effort.

Our subjugation is enforced through the gun barrel of a remote controlled drone, piloted by someone who doesn't have to look the target of the death machine in the eye anymore.

Man is not enslaved through the law, anymore than he can be freed by it. Nor does a gun, or the right to own a gun protect you from enslavement.

The only thing that protects someone from enslavement is the willingness to kill and die to protect it. When the odds were better that you might live through such an encounter, the willingness to defend one's freedom was greater. Now, defending your freedom is a sure death sentence, and someone would have to be a fool to act in a way that would make them a target.

However, willingness to die in mass numbers is how Gandhi freed India. However, it was a short lived victory and was hardly worth anything, let alone the cost in blood.

Having said all of this, the only safe course of action for any individual interested in reversing this trend is to remove yourself from every aspect of the system that you can. There are ways out, not easy, certainly harder than lobbying your local bullies (politicians), but it is in fact the only way to victory.

Carney is an idiot.

He is a mouthpiece for idiots.

We are more ignorant for listening to them.
