Hey, whatever kills the fucking terrorists. Complain all you want, this Administration, at least, gets the job done.

Oh, right. They should definitely go and kill half (Or more) of the population of their country. That'll definitely not cause a revolt of any kind.

They try to go as far as they possibly can while still maintaining the support of the majority.


theres a little piece of paper which all laws in america are based in. its called the constitution
theres a section that guarantees certain rights to ALL AMERICANS. one of those things is the right to due process and a trial by a jury of their peers.

assassinating people you think are bad without giving them a trial is against the law in america

Terrorists in one place are heroes in another, it all boils down to which side they're on. If you kill someone on your own side, you're a criminal. If you kill someone on the 'enemy' side, you're apparently doing nothing wrong.

Anyone can be a terrorist. No one has 'the look' that everyone is targeting.

Prominent Yemeni journalist Abdulelah Haider Shaye has been released from prison after being held for three years on terrorism-related charges at the request of President Obama. Shaye helped expose the U.S. cruise missile attack on the Yemeni village of al-Majalah that killed 41 people, including 14 women and 21 children in December 2009.
Then-Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh announced his intention to pardon Shaye in 2011, but apparently changed his mind after a phone call from Obama. In a statement, the White House now says it is "concerned and disappointed" by Shaye’s release. "We should let that statement set in: The White House is saying that they are disappointed and concerned that a Yemeni journalist has been released from a Yemeni prison," says Jeremy Scahill, national security correspondent for The Nation, who covers Shaye’s case in "Dirty Wars," his new book and film by the same name. "This is a man who was put in prison because he had the audacity to expose a U.S. cruise missile attack that killed three dozen women and children."
