Obama's 'kill list' revealed: How President uses Al Qaeda 'baseball cards' to decide who will live and who will die ......Full Title
Barack Obama has insisted on personally approving a 'kill list' of Al Qaeda terrorists who should be hunted down and executed, according to reports.
The U.S. president requests that his advisers draw up 'baseball cards' with pictures and biographies that he pores over to see who should live and who should die.
As part of the bizarre nomination process he then retires for personal reflection to work out whether or not to order a drone strike to take them out.

Everything is a game to him.
Can we please have grown ups in charge again?
“The U.S. president requests that his advisers draw up ‘baseball cards’ with pictures and biographies that he pores over to see who should live and who should die. “
I figured he just threw the “wanted cards” on the floor and then tossed a GI Joe doll. Whatever the doll landed on would be the next victim of our most excellent and experienced LIAR in chief.
Soooo....what about that Nobel Peace Prize?
He puts the cards in the prize, and then draws out the "lucky" winner.
He’s got to find something to do. It’s almost a year until he gets to fill out his NCAA tournament brackets again.
No big words on those cards either.
“Now, sound out the word. You can do it!”
Somebody mistook every Obama’s “FORE!” to mean ‘kill’......
Those weren’t handed out to Dubya to “Pick and choose” over.
“As part of the bizarre nomination process he then retires for personal reflection to work out whether or not to order a drone strike to take them out.”
Yeah, Barry’s personal reflection process: He gets his nails done so he’ll feel pretty, calls the girls for some good gossip and maybe a good cry, catches up the latest edition of Cosmo, then goes to the mall to shop for shoes.
January, 2013. Lots of work to do once this community organizer is sent back to Chicago.
>>> ...(Obama) requests that his advisers draw up baseball cards with pictures and biographies that he pores over ...
Is it going to be just stick figure depicting ‘domestic kill list’ (because maybe there are way too many on the list)?
I have an original deck from a friend that came back form Iraq!
An apostate who plays Go Fish with the lives of AQ militants.
Barry is racking up an awful lot of negative brownie points with the jihadis.
A distinction that is lost on our illustrious leader.
oops , how did those Chicago Cubs cards get in there
Can you imagine the outrage should this GWB had done this, instead of Obama?
I am curious as to whom he calls for permission during that period of 'personal reflection.'
There’s blood on the MSM’s hands as well, long as 0 is not taken to task. It’s not real until CBS and the NYT dig into it.
Of course it will become real if a Republican is elected.
In the meantime, a variety of people are killed, the vetting process not known, enemies are made, resolve stiffened, and future conflict assured.
Faces aren't so important from a drone thousands of feet in the air.
And the only "baseball stat" that the troops needed was the size of the gun the enemy was carrying.
Wonder how much of the info being ‘forwarded’ to him for his cards is factual.
Wouldn’t surprise me one bit if he was fed fake info to make decisions on for his little “Magic the Gathering” card game there.
Shades of LBJ.
Does anybody have that photo of LBJ picking out the day’s NVN targets for the Air Force? 1,000 words in one picture that illustrated perfectly why we don’t seem to win wars when Dems are allowed to run them.
he should get David Blaine to show him some tricks.
then Barry can do street magic .
There, fixed it.
Can I point out what the press and libtard reaction would be if Bush was using Obama’s “method” here? I mean, this would be THE STORY 24/7 until he was impeached out of office.
Technology has been a double-edged sword for the U.S. It has allowed the President and the Pentagon to stick their noses way too far down the chain of command and micromanage what should be tactical decisions in the battlefield.
I am no fan of Obama, but this story is pure b.s.
Once a person becomes “command tactical”, that is, someone actively leading others engaged in acts of war against any NATO country and is residing outside the United States, they become an HVT, High Value Target.
All HVTs are to be “neutralized” at their soonest availability. Meaning, when they appear down range and can be clearly identified. All HVT’s are on a kill or capture list, meaning that they are first to be captured if possible.
There are no standing orders or presidential memo’s that specify kill only, that would be illegal, even for the President.
If it is determined that the HVT cannot be captured without undue hazard to our forces, of if the HVT is available on such short notice that our forces cannot be assembled, a strike order can be issued by the commander of JSOC, Admiral McRaven, at any time, without review.
If tactical time pressure allows, McRaven will review an ongoing surveillance with the President. Politically significant HVT operations can be vetoed by the President, that’s all.
If bin Laden were observed to be moving out of the compound in Abbottabad before we could send in personnel, on such short notice, we would have cratered the compound and called Obama after the fact.
This hit list is just nonsense, unworkable, assumes Obama could be briefed at any moment 24/7 and doesn’t trust McRaven to make the call, pure b.s.
If it looks like “commander zero” will lose the election will he list the Tea Party and other “radical right wing” groups as a domestic terrorist organizations? Remember that DHS memo?
All subject to assasination and indefinite detention under the latest NDAA?
Do you have a cleaner link - my system’s stopping the process.
Do you have a cleaner link - my system’s stopping the process. Or the name of what you’re linking to - I can google it.
LOL, exactly. Ugh, November can't come soon enough...
Paranoid or not, the innocent ‘surveillance drones over Chicago and/or major US cities’ looks suspicious, eh?
So the Obama gubmint already used them at least once, ‘for the right reasons’, of course!
Did you know those cards were provided to the Armed Forces to facilitate identification and capture?
You’re either misguided or dishonest.
Your big assumption for this president and his merry band is that they are concerned about legality.
DoJ and Eric Holder ring any bell?
And yes, I treat this whole ‘Obama kill list’ as a big fluff piece, and a clumsy attempt by the Obama team for the reelection bid.
More likely than "personal reflection"...
A "death panel" composed of the President and his closest advisors -- Valerie Jarrett and Moochelle.
Since you're new here, maybe you should read more posts on a thread before commenting, if you want to get the big picture before saying something stupid.
Did you see my post 16?
Does the UCMJ Uniform Code of Military Justice ring a bell?
This is our military, carrying out the President’s commands, not some bitter, racist, has-been political hack appointee.
Even if the President gives an illegal order, say killing an unarmed detainee, it is illegal for any member of our military to carry it out.
All service personnel are schooled on the Geneva agreement, UCMJ, treatment of detainees, etc. and are often held accountable for infractions, especially murder.
There is this goofy notion that our Special Forces are free-wheeling gunslingers killing anyone they want.
The simultaneous release of Obama’s Kill List from multiple sources is intend for civilian consumption.
And, you just know, Libs will swallow it bait hook and sink.
The decision is usually made on the fairway of the 4th or 5th hole, but not before he's selected the club for his next shot.
