New York Times Criticizes Obama’s Drone Murders.

Written by Gary North on February 7, 2013

The New York Times ran an editorial criticizing Obama’s decision to authorize himself as the public executioner: jury, judge, and executioner. This editorial is amazing insofar as it is sensible.

The paper argues that judges and Congress don’t have the right to rule on or interfere with decisions made in the heat of combat. Some officials also draw a parallel to police officers who use violence to protect the innocent. Even in wartime, there are many ways to review commanders’ and soldiers’ decisions, and while courts-martial are internal to the military, their verdicts are subject to appeal to a civilian judge. When a police officer so much as discharges his weapon, it triggers a great deal of review, based on rules that are known to everyone.

There are no rules. Obama decides. He sees himself as George W. Bush: the decider.

When the #1 liberal organ in the country runs an editorial like this, you know Obama has crossed a line in the sand.

It won’t cost him votes. He isn’t going to run.

If Congress stays quiet, you will know that we are far down the road towards becoming an empire.

My guess is that he will get away with this.

  1. My guess is also that he'll get away with it, Gary. I'm astounded at the lack of response among the general public to some of the most outrageous measures. The PTB must think they can get away with absolutely anything, and you know, they may be right. I think they're counting on the 20- and 30-somethings getting into their power years and taking over. Most of these kids live in a video-game reality. Someone made the comment on Chris Kyle's book chronicling his career as a sniper, "So the video gamers have come of age. God help us." My thoughts exactly. I hope the young Austrians coming up provide some sort of counterbalance, but I'm afraid they're way outnumbered.

    • He has already gotten away with it. There is no one with power to oppose him. Our govt is rogue. We are all at risk

  2. Texas Chris says:

    Ron Paul warned them.

    They didn't listen.

  3. Kathleen Hunter says:

    King Obama, If you please!

  4. If the Piece of Shit was WHITE and he killed a BLACK teenager – there would be outrage. But no outrage the other way around!

  5. Trish your so right on what you just said… I hope in my heart that we have enough people that will band together to keep our country from going the way Obama is trying to pull us… So many people that I see that voted for Obama would not do a thing unless it effects them in a way that they are hurting.. as long as they still have a job they don't care and as long as they get their freebes the takers. this is so sad for us that really care and see what is going on…

    It appears to be the lesser of two evils. The old fashioned invasion by ground forces or hi-tech "surgical strikes". Hopefully when we withdraw our forces from the Muslim homelands drone strikes will become less of a necessity.
