The use of Drones were brilliant strategically as President Obama’s move to put less boots on the ground to targeted killing has proven to be the course to decimate Al Qaeda and keep this nation safe.

There is a reason that there hasn’t been a successful terrorist attack on American soil on Obama’s watch like there was on Bush’s watch… first off President Obama is intelligent, he thinks and earned the right to be President (unlike Bush), secondly he change all the failed policies that Bush had in place that allowed 9-11 to happen and allowed Osama bin Laden to live free and out in the open for years.

Last time I checked we had something called right to due process in the USA, or at least we used to until the Patriot Act. You know remember when people were protected by the US Constitution and had the right to a trail? Remember when the USA didn't drop bombs and kill innocent civilians around the world? That was a long time ago. Now the USA is a terrorist state. Also Obama is George W Bush. He's his 4th term and a terrible president.

Patty, just please shut the f*ck up. Every day you are on here, worshiping and kissing this man's feet. Bowing like a weak willed individual that needs daddy's acceptance.

It is completely obvious you are ignorant. You have no historical knowledge of Al Qaeda. You just sit there and bow and pray to man who wipes his ass like the rest of us.

How about you learn some history and look at the actual policies instead of spewing bullshit like this.

You truly are a weak troll with no self respect or personal dignity.

Wootick is listening to Chris Matthews, Rachael Maddow and the rest of the Obama media. They probably touched on the subject but glossed over it.

Unlike with Bush they would be covering it constantly if Bush would have passed this.

Here’s the best part… had you been able to win last November I would have been devastated; I would have probably disappeared and avoided this site where so many right-wingers on here would have skewered me relentlessly over Obama losing…

BUT…

I’m going to be here to constantly rub our victory in the face of you unpatriotic tea-baggers, LOL.

We are talking about a classified document that was leaked. The Obama administration has put a hit list on Americans tired to the taliban. Congress never approved this. This is something new.

The administration has described the memo as an internal “work product” that does not have to be shared with Congress. Lawmakers have accused the administration of a lack of transparency and likened its handling of the issue to the refusal of the Bush administration to provide access to legal memos justifying torture of terrorism suspects. Obama publicly released those memos shortly after taking office in 2009.

Before you start crying those evil Republicans. Both Republicans and Democrats have question on this procedure.
