3. Yep

The MSM is so good these days, it seems like people are completely compliant when it comes to blowing up foreigners. We wonder why nuts just choose to go postal? It's nearly imprinted on American's DNA, it would seem.

Always amazed that the same people would freak out, with the passion for a determined revenge if one of their children was murdered by a terrorist, but they don't seem to understand that feeling in the people in countries we occupy.

4. Well said, the disconnect going on in America

is beyond the pale. Is it because the drone strikes are so anonymous that it equates to 'if a tree falls in a forest and nobody is around to hear it'?

13. Not to mention the disconnect on this site.

And we haven't even touched on the travesty that is the Justice Department memo.

6. K&R

Woe be to all the sheeple in this country and on this website who blindly fall in line behind this horrendous drone and kill list program, without even asking nary a question, not a peep. We are now living in an age where it doesn't matter who is in office. Something in our government is hell-bent to wreak havoc all over the world, and now apparently even here at home. It's willing to even target American citizen's with no oversight, abroad and at home. And it appears that now, they don't even want to abide by running their plans past the intelligence oversight committees in Congress. Why do the sheeple not see the red flags all over the place?

Well, it's going to come back to us. We are going to get it one of these days. I've been saying this for years, and now it's more apparent than ever before. As a matter of fact, I think this world economic turmoil is part of the blowback. Too much goes unchecked in this country. There are two sets of laws, one for us and one for "them." Them, being the 1% which is comprised mostly of profiteers of the MIC.

Thank you North Carolina for posting this...

11. I completely agree

with your post. I am convinced that the apologists here have an agenda, keeping immaterial and nonsensical posts at the forefront, while working to obscure and sink posts that shed light on truth. They claim that Assange and the like are terrorists, enemies of America, but I think that their actions demonstrate who the enemies of America truly are...the ones constantly pointing a finger of condemnation at those seeking to inform a radically misinformed public.

9. Moyers' last word.... "untarnished". Referring to the Nobel Prize that should have

been left on the shelf - "untarnished". Says it all.

The Prize has been diminished, for sure.

16. I am PROUD to STAND on the same side of the line as Bill Moyers,

...and for the same reasons.







You will know them by their WORKS,
not by their rhetoric, promises, or excuses.

17. Why did Salem Ahmed bin Ali Jaber meet with Al Qaeda?

I'm not saying he was a danger to anyone. What I am saying is that I would not meet with members of the "Crips" "Bloodz" or any other gang in the U.S. That's asking for trouble. He sounded like truly an honorable man, but he should not be meeting with these people, IMO.

19. Stupidly, the drone strikes have the opposite effect of the supposedly intended affect.

They don't make us safer. They make us less safe.

21. The real intended effect is to make more enemies so the MIC will get more contracts.

As for the making safer part, that's just propaganda. There is no 'safer' there.

Drones are used to scare those who might be able to think twice before joining any active cells.
