What is particularly scary about this story is that investigative government agencies at the local, state and other federal offices with investigative powers look to these trends, themes and powers as precedent setting examples of what doors are now open to them.
The person who is theoretically a major player in the development of a Drone Kill List is now the director of the CIA makes you wonder just what are the true direction and objectives of not only the Obama administration in particular but politics in the US in general.
It also appears that some secondary magazines are the only ones stepping up to the plate to continue the tradition of investigative journalism that the main stream press has so willing surrendered: “…..Journalist Michael Hastings was investigating CIA director John Brennan before his untimely death in a suspicious car accident it has been revealed, with the report set to be published posthumously by Rolling Stone Magazine within the next two weeks…..”
To first look at the photo, you would think it was a military operation but in fact is a police swat team. A fair question is that the example of Drone killing mission in countries not at war with the US is setting an example for local law enforcement.
