President Obomba

10 March, 2014

While reading a story about the UN special rapporteur on human rights calling on states to assume greater responsibility for the death of civilians during drone strikes, I found this paragraph:

“At the time of writing, there have been no reported drone strikes during 2014, the longest pause since President Obama took office,” Emmerson said. HERE

Of course, it was no surprise, since we all know that our President has admitted to being very good at killing people, HERE

The report is part of a Human Rights Commission attempt to require inquiries whenever civilians have been endangered, injured, or killed as a result of a drone attack. Most of the attacks cited in the story were carried out by U.S. drones, but Israel was also cited for its attacks in Gaza.

Pakistan asked the U.S. to stop its drone attacks because the government felt that civilian deaths were creating a backlash of anger and that the attacks were doing more harm than good. According to Emmerson, when the attacks in Pakistan stopped there was an increase in the number of attacks in Afghanistan.

Guess the U.S. can’t have those drones going unused; the President’s kill rate might to down.
