"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
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.
