The United States drone program is killing civilians simply for traveling in large groups while the ‘terrorists’ are trying to provide humanitarian services.
On Democracy Now! investigative blogger Marcy Wheeler who has been covering the so-called “War on Terror” over at Empty Wheel discusses so key points about the US assassination program that the corporate media does not dare inform the public about.
The interview discusses several things Americans should be made aware of including the shady background and history of lies of Obama’s newly appointed Assassination Czar and some shocking details about the secret war the U.S. is waging in across the middle east.
For starters, Marcy explains how Al-Qaeda operatives in the area are struggling to provide humanitarian services to people in the Middle East’s poorest country while the US funnels $300 million plus into the region, most of which is used to conduct a covert war.
She goes on to explain how the so-called enemy is struggling to provide food and turn on electricity for people in the area while the United States is running around murdering civilians.
The she makings some stunning revelations about America’s assassination program and the two methods used to decide how drone strikes will be carried out.
The first method is the obvious one – the designation of a person to be assassinated based on specific intelligence about their past activities and or associations. This which eventually lead to the designation of a time and date where a drone strike will occur and if you happen to be an unfortunate bystander in that vicinity, well the corporate media does a good job
