NBC News Guest Calls Obama A Murderer
Fox News ^ | 6/3/2012 | Mediaite

Posted on 06/03/2012 2:16:32 PM PDT by Nachum

Last Sunday, Up with Chris Hayes host Chris Hayes ignited significant outrage with his musings about the word “heroes.” This morning, Up panelist and national security reporter for The Nation Jeremy Scahill waded into controversial semantic waters by repeatedly accusing President Obama of “murder” through the administration’s use of drone strikes, which have killed an indeterminate number of civilians.

Surprisingly, Scahill’s indictment of the President was challenged, not by Hayes, but by Redstate.com co-founder Joshua Treviño.

The topic of discussion was the so-called “kill list” of suspected terrorists to be exterminated in drone strikes. Hayes began by trying to drill down on Scahill’s use of the term “murder” in an earlier segment. “Obviously, that’s a loaded verb because it carries certain moral and legal ramifications,” Hayes said.

Nice taking sides, but remember when sides change, the rules change in addition.

Perhaps we shouldn’t be fighting.

Or perhaps we should. But keep in mind, we are also setting the rules used against us...

Any mention of whay Axelrod was/is involved in drone-strike planning meetings? Well, I guess Goebbels was at some of Adolph’s war planning get-togethers.

True liberals will always oppose any military action from the US, especially drone strikes that are viewed as “cowardly” and “indiscriminate”, despite facts.

This gives them cover when Romney continues their use.

Al Qaeda apparently had no problem with murdering people. Now they’re on the other end - it is, after all, a war.

Of terrorists, fine. How about US federal agents, and hundreds of Mexicans....?

Apparently it’s super cool to NOT ask the Preezie about that. >:(

Be very wary when the tables turn so that 'even conservatives support 0'...........wait for that mantra to be used more and more as November approaches.

As much as I don't want either 0 or Romney to win...........watch for romney to be considered same-same on healthcare, a greedy heartless bastard that used Bain to cost people their jobs, and not up to par on National Defense - that even conservatives support 0s drone policies.

Oh and lets not forget that he's spent 4 years trying to recover from the evil Boosh's policies and needs 4 more to change everything from happy to glad; oh yeah and Booosh endorsed romney.

If he were talking about Fast and Furious it would be an accurate charge.

They put this out there to counter Romney's charges of Obama being weak on national security. They thought it would depict a serious leader w gravitas doing what is necessary to keep America safe. They did not anticipate the reaction of the Dem base. The moonbats have come furiously unglued over the image of Obama making every single Kill decision personally. This isn't who he was supposed to be; the left has been betrayed—and the anger is palpable.

If you want to hear leftists calling Obama a “psychopathic megalomaniac”, here's your link:

The MSM is being 'oh so shocked' at this - and talking about it endlessly BECAUSE they want to present Obama as 'more conservative' than we thought.

Remember Clinton's Sister Souljah moment ? This is the same. It's a tactic.

Except that the barbarians don't follow any rules to begin with, but win at all cost and in any way. They don't even value their own lives and gladly kill themselves to kill us, Military personal and civilians, it doesn't matter. Spreading terror is their goal. Killing civilians accomplishes that even better than killing Military personal. They are an enemy out of the pits of hell, because they love death.

Have no problem with him killing the terrorists, but if the terrorist is among numerous innocent women and children??The marxist in chief shows what a hypocrit he is when he and his slug AG Holder look to bring criminal charges against our people for enhanced interrogation ie waterboarding and sleep deprivation

Sec. of Hate Hillary Clinton laughed about the murder of a POW named Momar Gaddaffi.

There are war criminals loose and the Left says it isn’t hip to protest Clinton(s).

Agreed, but with this narcissist sooner or later he is going to turn this weapon on his political enemies. In his mind he is always right.

It is also one hundred percent accurate regarding the bombing of the homes of Gadafi’s grandchildren during the Lybian fiasco.

You don’t kill civilian families when you have no idea where a dictator is and are hoping dumb luck will turn him up.

And Eric Holder and Obama were both publicly saying back in 2009 that if the World Court indicted GWB for war crimes they may consider to honor the indictment.

What say you now Hussein?
