When Obama took office, he and US Attorney General Eric Holder claimed that impeachment was "off the table." The Obama administration refused to prosecute Bush and Cheney for war crimes and even blocked an investigation from Spain into Bush and Cheney's clear criminal behavior. We now know the reason: Obama wants to commit war crimes of his own. What a marked change from the guy who campaigned on his transparency! The president tried to appoint Brennan to head the CIA in his first term but withdrew his nomination after civil rights activists cried foul. So why so little protest against the formerly controversial pick this time around?


"That's because, following Obama's lead, the country has decided to ignore the fact that it committed grievous crimes as part of the "War on Terror." Obama's Orwellian decree that we must "look forward, not backward" has convinced huge numbers of citizens to sweep this all under the rug and pretend it never happened. That is what explains how Brennan went from radioactive and unconfirmable in 2008 to uncontroversial in 2013."

Obama has increased drone strikes by 700% from George W. Bush's reign of error. And we wonder why people want to attack us.


Just thought you might like to see the face of someone Obama sent a drone to murder with your tax dollars. I feel so much safer with him dead, don't you? We not only target Al Qaeda, but even "military-age" kids who aren't affiliated with Al Qaeda or who we think might be likely to join at some point. Now Obama wants approval to use drones to kill US citizens in this way. Take away Obama's Nobel peace prize.

Largely thanks to a complicit corporate-state news media, the story of a U.S. teenager executed without trial by the government has largely gone under the radar.

The teen -- who we will temporarily refer to as "Adam" -- was born on August 26, 1995 at approximately 1:16 pm in Denver, Colorado. Like many Americans, Adam came to enjoy watching movies, playing football, computer games, and swimming.

 Following the attacks of 9/11, the father of Adam -- also a U.S. citizen -- was invited to a luncheon at the Pentagon designed to encourage religious tolerance.

In late 2002, Adam and his father moved to Britain, and then Yemen in 2004.

In 2008, U.S. intelligence agencies made the claim that the father of Adam had been a "spiritual counselor" for some of the9/11 hijackers and had also assisted in various terror plots. The following year, Adam's father went into hiding, but this wouldn't deter his son from eventually setting off to try and find him.

Around 6:30 am on September 4th, 2011, Adam quietly slipped away from his family home in Sana, Yemen, leaving behind a note for his mother. "I am sorry for leaving in this kind of way," he wrote. "Forgive me. I miss my father and want to see if I can go and talk to him."


"If the government is going to be firing Predator missiles at American citizens, surely the American public has a right to know who's being targeted, and why."
