So that's how Obama is doing it now ...

Release a prisoner from Gitmo and then mow him AND his associates down with drones.

I am happy that Obama was able to get a lot of terrorist of the battle field with these drone strikes but I think it is time for Congress to hold hearings because I am not comfortable with the President just killing who he wants without any oversight.

I have to hand it to Obama on this one, place a tracking chip in the prisoners at Gitmo, let them go and then send drones to kill them. Gitmo closes, Obama looks good. None of that pesky interference from the Legislative or Judicial branches. Brilliant.

Just imagine if this was George Bush. The libs would be going nuts! "He lets them go, then kills them without even a hearing, much less a trial!"

Nice work Obama! No waterboarding or other fake torture for you. Just death from above for the terrorist and anyone around him at the time. No worries about collateral damage. Grandma and the little kid who was passing by on the bike are just two more dead ragheads as far as Herr Obama is concerned.
