“For every 10 to 15 people killed, maybe they get one militant….I don’t go to count how many Taliban are killed. I go to count how many children, women, innocent people, are killed.” This photograph by Noor Behram shows three children orphaned by one of Obama’s Drone attacks. Tell them you are voting for the lesser of 2 evils.

We Can’t Be Silent: Ten Years of the War on Terror Needs to Stop
I ask this sincerely: what kind of country targets rescuers, funeral attendees, and people gathered to mourn? If a Hollywood film featured a villainous King ordering lethal attacks on rescuers, funerals and mourners — those medically attending to or grieving his initial victims — any decent audience member would, by design, seethe with contempt for such an inhumane tyrant. But this is the standard policy and practice under President Obama and it continues through today. Recall the outrage that was sparked when WikiLeaks released its Collateral Murder video showing a U.S. Apache helicopter during the Bush era firing on unarmed rescuers, who had arrived to retrieve the initial victims who had been shot and were laying wounded on the ground. That tactic continues under President Obama, although it is now expanded to include the targeting of grieving rituals.
