U.S. Gov't Asks Federal Judge to Dismiss Cases of Americans Killed by Drones

Joe Wright
Activist Post

As Americans mourn the deaths of 20 children and 6 adults in the Newtown, CT tragedy - and the gun control debate has reached a fever pitch - autonomous killing systems are being funded by American taxpayers, and drone strikes continue to kill an increasing number of civilians abroad.

Barack Obama and the U.S. government policy makers have shown an incredible level of hypocrisy before; on the one hand lamenting such senseless deaths as have occurred in "mass shootings" while conducting their own mass killing, torture, and terror campaigns in foreign lands.

A culture of violence can't have it both ways, though, and the welcoming of drones into American skies by Congress is sure to unleash physical havoc shortly after concerns over surveillance and privacy are dismissed.

As a clear sign of what can be expected, the U.S. government has asked a federal judge to throw out a lawsuit brought by the families of three Americans killed by drone strikes in Yemen.  If federal courts rule that these cases are without merit, it will set a dangerous precedent that only the executive branch of government can decide which Americans have a constitutional right to due process, while further enhancing a framework where the government will decide who is fit to be mourned and who should be forgotten.

Hypocrisy has been the specialty of governments everywhere for a long time. Unfortunately, Americans are being taken advantage of the worst right now, since the U.S. has started this drone warfare crap. Just carry your flag, pay up and shut up.

Selective tragedies and another example of the infection known as American exceptionalism. Murder is murder.

Believe it or not I actually saw a youtube comment the other day stating that Obama "wasn't a war criminal like Bush" and that now that he was reelected there was no chance of him pushing war on Syria or Iran... rofl.

Apparently nobody has informed this individual of Obama's drone warfare program, official sanctioning of assassinations of American citizens, the assault on Libya, the NDAA, and so on.

I sincerely hope that poster was a troll working for them, at this point nobody in America should be that ignorant of reality even if they actually try to be ignorant of it.

Peace,

Yes, Barry crying tears for the victims of the Conneticut shootings. Does he cry when his chief of staff reports that the most recent drone hit somewhere in the mid-east just took out 20 innocent people? I think not. He and michelle are busy packing bags for another million dollar trip to Hawaii. Barry is not only laughing all the way to the bank he is also laughing when he kills innocent people.
