Assassinations are a big hit again
By MATTHEW STEVENSON | 5/10/12 9:33 PM EDT
As a useful instrument of statecraft, assassination is somewhere between impressment (dragging sailors off neutral ships) and piracy (the poor mans defense appropriations).
Nonetheless, the Obama administration has elevated the gangland rub-out into an article of faith what with predator drone strikes, CIA executive actions and no-fly zones, which usually include a few Tomahawks directed down the chimney at a dictators hideout.
The romance with assassination is a legacy of World War II, when it was felt that if only someone had murdered Adolf Hitler (many tried), then Germany would have stopped occupying Europe and gotten on with the business of serving beer to happy tourists.
Now that the Obama administration has outfitted Osama bin Laden with cement shoes, assassinations look like a sure-fire tactic to keep U.S. enemies at bay and reelection chances high. They combine the ratings of Survivor with the punch of negative advertising.

For those interested -
Interesting link in light of Biden ‘outing’ Obama in this month.
...and even more interesting is that it shows up in Politico.
The embargo lasted as long as it took for Ronald Reagan to send stealth bombers over Libya in 1986 to ice Muammar Qadhafi.
F-111’s were many things but not stealth.
I think it would be a nice idea for our candidate and spokespeople, when asked the usual gotcha question: “Isn’t there ANYTHING President Obama has done that you think you could give him credit for?”
A: Why yes, there is. He’s been the best assassin president we’ve ever had. All presidents should take this page from his book, you know, for future reference. We could probably avoid many a war using Obama’s “executive” style. And it’s a real eye-opener to see the press, as they refrain from giving him any grief over it. Heavens, the press never used to put up with this kind of hawkishness.
Heck yeah. Skip the torture and go right to the assissination.
Can you imagine the tizzy that would follow?
Donald Young was the first victim I thought of.
The next, fearless patriot, Andrew Breitbart.
I pray every day that Obama would be unmasked for what and who he is and lose in a landslide in November and brought to justice.
And so-called torture is a big deal?
Democrats named the tea party, terrorists for kicking them out of house leadership. You did not see the Rinos object as the Dems turned from naming radical Islam as the opponent of the US to naming conservatives as the dangerous enemy of the State. You can not trust these freaks with the power to torture and kill “domestic terrorists.”
“Nonetheless, the Obama administration has elevated the gangland rub-out into an article of faith what with predator drone strikes, CIA executive actions and no-fly zones, which usually include a few Tomahawks directed down the chimney at a dictators hideout. “
Then, in the US, there was Joe Wheeler, Andrew Breitbart, Joe the Plumber, The Breitbart autopsy photographer, Obama’s gay bathhouse friends, Obama’s gay choir friend, Obama’s mother, and hundreds more you will never hear about.
I think Obamas grandmother is in hiding and they faked her death, she knew WAY too much about him.
They say from eyewitnesses that when Obama dumped her ashes in the bay they were the wrong color, consistency and amount.
Her death if it happened was suspiciously timed.
Yeah. Ironically, I was thinking the same thing this afternoon when Fox News mentioned that the FBI was searching for a "suicidal rogue FBI agent".
My first thought when I heard that was, "that poor guy, I wonder what he knows and why they want to kill him for it?"
Tinfoil hat response, I know...
