Will You Be On President Obama's Kill List?
Barack Obama campaigned to become the 44th president with vows to close Guantanamo, stop torture and end the war in Iraq. But
campaigning and governing are two entirely separate things, as Obama
quickly found out when confronted with the sustained threat of terrorism
against the U.S. and the realities of fighting two foreign wars.
Reiterated promises of “hope” and “change”
on the campaign trail had little to do with things such as decisions
related to “kill lists” and “signature strikes” that Obama encountered
when he entered the Oval Office. The result: a policy that is perhaps
more aggressive than the one his predecessor George W. Bush utilized in
attempting to root out terrorism, and one that may surprise—or even
shock—the liberal voters who cast their ballots for Obama in 2008. —TEB
