Do any of you find it the least bit contradictory that our Nobel Peace Prize winning President is also the same individual that now authorizes drone attacks based on suspicious activity?
Now, the other drone attacks were bad enough, where we were pretty sure that we had a suspected target and we would hit unintended targets in the process, which we so neatly refer to as collateral damage.But now, we'll launch without a confirmed target. We’ll now launch a drone attack, just based on patterns of suspicious activity.

So, does this make you feel safer? And if you feel safer, does that make it OK?How many times have you heard that the "bad guys" don't respect life the way that we do? Does this make you stop and think about how much we respect life?
I know that this is a downer of a subject, and believe me I would much rather write about something more uplifting, but how is it that we can turn a blind eye to this type of thing, and also cheer for the re-election of the current administration?Are we really so afraid of the "terrorist threat" that we're OK with suspicious pattern bombing of people?
And yes, this country has done lots of bad stuff in its history, and you can argue that this is really nothing new.But, I guess it's my own fault for thinking that this would be some of the stuff that was going to change. It's been clear for some time now that the change was in style and hope died on inauguration day Jan 20, 2009.
