Matty O highlighted the NY Times puff piece about President O and his "Kill List" previously. It really is a nauseating read. But there are a couple of things that just jump off the page and show the true colors of the gutsy caller. The first is this tid bit about the fact that O personally approves all the extra-judicial killings.
But the control he exercises also appears to reflect Mr. Obama’s striking self-confidence: he believes, according to several people who have worked closely with him, that his own judgment should be brought to bear on strikes.
That is not particularly difficult to believe. Although there are other ways than "striking self-confidence", to describe that like oh, maybe narcissistic arrogance. But here is the real peach
David Axelrod, the president’s closest political adviser, began showing up at the “Terror Tuesday” meetings, his unspeaking presence a visible reminder of what everyone understood: a successful attack would overwhelm the president’s other aspirations and achievements.
Again not tough to believe, but sad nonetheless. Axelrod is a disgusting, reprehensible example of all that is foul about the political process. He is in that room because politics is what runs that operation and that is a shame. Men live or die based on the benefit or danger to the reelection prospects of Barack Obama.That is so far from right you couldn't see it from there. Sadder yet is the fact that we have stopped even attempting to capture and interrogate terrorists, again that could be messy for the Campaigner in Chief. We need to move this guy out to pasture this November. I hear Jimmy Carter is hiring at the Disgraced Ex-Presidents Society.
