<<<<< Obviously, Obama wants the world to see him as a tough guy. First, he went with cigarettes hanging from his lips. Now that he is the most powerful man in the world, however, it seems his kill list has taken the place of those disgusting cigs.
Update: Tuesday afternoon, Jay Carney defended Obama's "kill list" as being "consistent with our moral values" or words to that effect. During the Bush years, his boss [B Obama] apposed "waterboarding" as that which was against accepted American moral values, but killing terrorist and all who happen to be near his drone attacks, is just fine. You libs are disgustingly hypocritical - and I am addressing the two or three hundred Libs who read this blog, each and everyday [out of 1,400 normal people, on average] Not one of you [Libs] can justify Obama's actions in contrast to your illogical hatred for GW Bush. . . . . . . go ahead and prove me wrong. Instead, you will simply ignore the killing of innocents, under YOUR president, and wait to protest after the next Republican "war-monger" is elected, whenever that might be. Hypocritical jerks all.
Today, the Obama Administration let it be known that Barack, October, 2009 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, personally manages and edits a "kill list." The list currently has 15 names including one a woman and more than one American.
The ACLU has spoken out against this list. And, the New York Times has published a huge (8 page) story on the matter. The article can be found, here. Its title, "Secret Kill List . . . ," is hardly the case - that it is a "secret," that is. Obama wants the world to see him as a tough guy when it comes to his war on terror. As a result, he has released enough information to the Times, to fill the eight pages it has reserved for this article.
|Obama looking tough.|
I love it . . . . . . a Nobel Peace Prize "winner" who is a killer, by trade. Obama always wanted to be a tough guy; now he are one !! Understand that killing the enemy is a good idea, but not for a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, and certainly not for a man who used criticism of the "killer, George W Bush," to gain the presidency of the United States. And this business of Obama's "collateral death count" is just too disingenuous to merit any respect for Obama's leadership or his authority as the moral center of the Leftist Universe.
What a joke.
The Nobel Peace Prize for 2009
The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama's vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.
Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play. Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts. The vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations. Thanks to Obama's initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened.
Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future. His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world's population.
For 108 years, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has sought to stimulate precisely that international policy and those attitudes for which Obama is now the world's leading spokesman. The Committee endorses Obama's appeal that "Now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges."
