"This is Not Dick Cheney We’re Talking About"

Here is the lead from Paul Street’s recent piece in ZNet:

Questioned by a handful of Senate Democrats on his secret killer drone program earlier this month, Barack Obama said "This is not Dick Cheney we’re talking about here."

"No Mr. President," one of those Senators should have retorted (none did), "it is not. It is worse, actually, in three ways. First, Cheney was Vice President and you, sir, are President. Second, you have gone very far beyond George W. Bush and Dick Cheney when it comes to the cowardly and indiscriminate murder of thousands of people with drones. Third, you have done this under the cloak of liberalism, progressivism, peace, and multiculturalism whereas Bush and Cheney were openly reactionary white-nationalist messianic-militarists, which made their evil easier to identify and oppose."

Of 366 U.S. drone attacks that have killed 3,581 people in Pakistan since 2002, 316 have been launched by the Obama administration. Less than 2 percent of those killed have been high-profile Taliban militants, the avowed targets. Many of those blasted out of earthly existence by America’s airborne remote-control killing machines have been innocent bystanders, including women and children.

It’s a worthwhile piece, give it a read. Street is hyping a series of anti-drone demonstrations scheduled for April, and well that he should. As Street implies, Obama with his fleet of 7500 drones has become a scarier war-monger than Cheney. If Obama is what it means to have a black president, let’s hope he’s the last.

Here is a link to Know Drones, which is a major anti-drone website.  And here is their FAQ page.
