Who would have guessed that one of the most warmongering presidents would be a liberal Democrat who was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize? Obama has gotten away with a secret escalating drone war because the left and their fifth column in the media have mostly turned a blind eye, just like they have with Obama's expanded ground war in Afghanistan, not wanting to criticize a fellow leftist in power. Obama is not the pacifist he pretends to be. The executive branch's escalating drone strike program has been taking place in secret now for over 10 years, all ostensibly justified...
Aside from the usual hypocrisy, many on the left are salivating over the possibility of using drones against domestic political enemies, which the regime has been redefining as terrorists for four years. Law-enforcement agencies are already operating the damned things in American airspace. Off-the-shelf technology -- gigapixel cameras, face-recognition software, etc. -- allows continual surveillance of individuals. One federal agency, the FAA, has begun getting us used to drones by blandly predicting that 30,000 will be flitting around the country before long. It's only a matter of time before some militia leader gets a Hellfire wake-up call.
