uncovered by Michael Isikoff is just an exclamation point on a general stance and philosophy of the ruling elite that anyone who works for a living is a disposable commodity, just like petroleum and pork bellies, when you no longer serve the interests of the global 1%.
I'm really astounded that Obama has so little integrity that he allows his name to be forever besmirched by association with this drone policy, but then I remember that American democracy is basically a system to protect the interests of the private property owners and has been since 1776.
So if you work for a living, you are now on notice: you too are completely and totally disposable at the whim of an executive branch unencumbered by such quaint and obsolete notions as due process or judicial review and you are nothing to the global 1%, those who do not earn their livings by the sweat of their brows.
The question, as V.I. Lenin stated 100 years ago, is "What is to be done?"
