Skip to comments.Obama pushed to compile ‘Do Not Kill' list
Posted on 05/31/2012 8:51:15 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
The government keeps a "Do Not Call" list to protect Americans from telemarketers, and a "No-Fly" list to protect Americans from suspected extremists who might try to board an airplane. So what about a "Do Not Kill" list to protect citizens from drone strikes by their own government?
That's the (somewhat) tongue-in-cheek proposal from critics of President Barack Obama's reported "kill list" of suspected terrorists which may include American citizens overseas. They have launched a petition on the White House web site asking him to create a government "Do Not Kill" list.
The petition, created Wednesday, had 1,701 signatures as of this writing, 23,299 shy of the 25,000 needed within 30 days to get a formal White House response.
The text of the petition is sharply critical of the so-called secret "kill list," which was detailed in a recent New York Times piece. The article's publication came as the Obama Administration has been touting its hard-line on terrorism in the context of a hard-fought election campaign. "The New York Times reports that President Obama has created an official 'kill list' that he uses to personally order the assassination of American citizens," the petition says.
