Obama Justifies Murder
You have read the headline correctly: US President Barack Obama justifies the use of his 'Nobel Peace Drones', in an interview with Reality Check. When confronted by journalist, Ben Swann of Reality Check about the list of US citizens who can be assassinated without trial, his rather flimsy defence was that the matter is somehow so secretive that he cannot speak about it.
In another video clip, Jake Tapper of ABC news impressed this issue to the White House press secretary, in which there is a similar style of answering, where somehow, nobody is accountable for it. In another video, Obama acts as though only a few civilians have died by accident (one has to ask even if one civilian was killed, does that negate the need for an apology?).
This is a shocking response, as not only do Obama’s answers make the USA look more Orwellian as time goes on, but the lack of humanity he and his administration have shown is a new low. It is election season and one would think that he’d try his utmost to garner support, by making amends for the previous administration's errors. However, he has expanded on the Bush Administration’s errors and both Obama and presidential candidate, Mitt Romney have proven to be even bigger slaves to the Israeli and banking lobbies.
Imagine if the civilians under attack were of a different religious group; surely, there would be global uproar to ensure such things do not occur. Sadly because we are Muslims, no one cares.
It goes to show that because Muslims have no lobby to take care of them, we are continually oppressed and the powers-that-be don’t give a damn about us. Until we prioritise the defence of Islam, as our number one priority, we, as a global community will continue to fall down the sinkhole to previously unforeseen limits.
