FBI Agent who Shot Broomstick-Wielding Suspect Cleared by “Investigations”; Congressional Inquiry Needed



Ramblings from a Crackpot Science Fiction Fan’s Unpublished Novella

A lot true. There is nothing fanciful, exaggerated or dystopian about Gitmo or indiscriminate drone killings. More than anything, the Snowden case illustrates to my mind the farcical, ludicrously fattened corruption and self-dealing of the military-industrial complex. That no one can say what all this crap is for, and that some 29-year-old bro in Hawaii who doesn't even work for the government can get a hold of this stuff, while members of Congress can't even get a proper briefing ... It's comical, really. "National security" with its pants down.

30% of Drone Attack Victims in Pakistan are Civilians-AP

Of course, on 9 March 1945 U.S. bombers incinerated Tokyo and killed more than 89,000 people in one night, far more than 30 percent of them civilians, according to the contemporary definition of the term. By that standard, drones are indeed a far more precise way of waging war. - promoted by Bob_Neer
