White House: No more information about drone killings will be released to public
The Daily Caller ^ | February 7, 2014 | Vince Coglianese, executive editor

Posted on 02/19/2014 10:44:17 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters Thursday that the Obama administration will not be releasing any more information about the controversial use of drones to kill American citizens.

Carney’s remarks, via the White House’s transcript of the off-camera press gaggle:

“This is not an open-ended process. This is a specific and unique accommodation in this circumstance. The fact is, when it comes to public disclosure, we have been — not with the kind of attention that’s been given it this week — but we have been publicly discussing these matters at the highest levels of government for the very reason that I’ve given, which is the President understands that these are core issues about how we conduct ourselves in war, how the President of the United States — any President — balances his constitutional obligation to protect America and American citizens, and his obligation to do so in a manner that is lawful under the Constitution and reflects our values.

“The President takes these issues very seriously, and he believes that the conversation about this is valid and that the questions about it are legitimate. And that’s why he has been leading this process internally to — as has John Brennan, by the way — to provide public information as much as possible, mindful of the fact that we are talking about here very sensitive matters, and that these kinds of things — they’re classification — information is classified for very legitimate reasons that go right to our national security interest.

“But within that, there is an effort underway to provide Congress information — those who have oversight over these matters — classified information as well as unclassified with the white paper and the public information as much as possible.”(continued)

They're just so brazen anymore, like they think they have us all over a barrel. They need to watch some videos from Egypt, Tunisia, the Ukraine, Libya, the Philippines or Thailand. Governments are overthrown all the time by disarmed and lightly-armed people, much less armed to the teeth populations.

Not for nothing, 2ndDiv, but those people were under the boot heel for a long time; it may be that we are just going under it,

3 more long freaking years, how much more destruction can this one man wring?

Even the “liberals” are getting wise to him now.

It may prove too wise too late.

It’s not very “wet”, at least from our point of view.

SYMBOLS MATTER

A symbol that caters to a cult of personality fervor, and elevates a man, over the people he is sworn to serve, is a dire warning sign that foretells a future of bad intentions.

constitutional obligation to protect America and American citizens

Yeah, protect the citizens by killing them. I guess we'll never hear about it when the drone strikes upon citizens commence over American soil.

Of course, if it's transparent that means you can't see it, right?

Yes, the liberals are wising up but according to the report this week they’d still vote for him again even though they regret it. How does this make any sense? A bunch of masochists? Stockholm Syndrome? Hard to understand!

"the controversial use of drones to kill American citizens."

I think the correct words to describe these kinds of events are executions or assassinations.

Soon the MSM won’t be reporting a lot under der Fuehrer’s orders. They did put monitors in the newsrooms recently didn’t they? Me thinks they are about to put the U.S. in the dark about Obama’s next phase of the transformation process by keeping it out oft he news. In other words, the horns are starting to be revealed.

Who in a sane world would ever have thought they'd hear that? Never thought America would ever have the likes of this evil administration.

Nope, not under orders.

They've been doing it willingly and enthusiastically.

Someone posted a graphic similar to the above Sally Sweetlies, except Sally had a black eye, fat lip, scrapes and torn clothes. (Wish I'd kept a copy!).

That's the new relationship between the government and the press...

Hundreds? More like millions, but I can understand why they want to keep it secret. If you are a white, conservative, heterosexual, pro life Christian, then not only do you look to the heavens for the Lord's return, but you also look to the heavens, to see if there are any drones lurking about. Keep your powder dry when the SHTF.

Actually it is not very wet. It is very high temperature and explosive. The exterior of the body is scorched and it suffers massive internal trauma. It is not wet but is simply assassination by decree of the overlord.

I actually have no problem with the killing of those that have and are trying to kill us if they are foreign nationals. If they are nationals they must be awarded due process even if in abstentsia. That makes it legal. Let it be known far and wide that if you travel in the company of those you may be collateral damage. Without this legal due process the same thing can be done to us in the United States.

Obama with the help of his advisers make the kills lists as his advisers had said on the record. Do you trust him? !!!!!!!!!!!!

The swastika is a very old symbol in some oriental religions; Shinto, for one. While touring a shrine in Japan I was shocked to see multiple swastikas in the decor of a shrine building. When I questioned the tour guide, she informed the group that the swastika was being used long before Adolf came along and glommed onto it. I probably have an old Kodachrome slide somewhere, buried among my souvies.
