17-Year-Old Girl Included On Obama’s Secret ‘Kill List’?
He had vowed to align the fight against Al Qaeda with American values; the chart, introducing people whose deaths he might soon be asked to order, underscored just what a moral and legal conundrum this could be,” reports the NY Times, adding that one of the targets in Yemen is “a girl who looked even younger than her 17 years,” and that “Several were Americans.”
The White House has asserted the right to carry out state-sponsored assassination anywhere in the world without having to provide any evidence or go through any legal process.
“In the USA, it is illegal to impose executions on people under 18, something that most Democrats would support, I suppose. Yet, their vaunted president, Barack Obama, has declared that a 17-year-old girl is to be gunned down if American spies can find her,” writes Bill Anderson.
“Somehow, I doubt that there will be a peep of protest about that at the Democratic National Convention this summer. And, to make things even more depressing, I’m sure that the Republicans will claim that Obama is “soft on terrorism” and is too “timid” to launch the U.S. Killing Machine in full force. So it has come to this: Washington, D.C., is the new home of Murder, Inc.”
