White House reviews targeted killing program

The growing strength of extremist groups across the Middle East and Africa has led the Obama Administration to begin a classified review of just who it can go after under its targeted killing program.

The current congressional authorization to use military force, allows the President to "use all necessary and appropriate force" against any persons or organizations involved in planning or carrying out the September 11th attacks–its been interpreted to include al Qaeda affiliates.

But emerging terrorist groups sympathetic to al Qaeda do not necessarily have a direct link to the core Al Qaeda network responsible for the September 11th attack, CNN's Barbara Starr reports.

    certainly like your website but you need to test the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to inform the truth however I'll definitely come back again.

    The cheapest and most effective way to eliminate terrorists and Islamic clerics is to pay bounties to Muslim women including giving them exit visas. Osama Bin Laden Laden was captured because he was betrayed by his concubines.

    Well its about time. Criminy. I do not like my country that I love, being given a bad name to the rest of the world for being a hypocrite. Truth, Justice and the American Way? We dont assassinate, right? Lets have the big guys think back to when they were in law school. Come on now. JC, do you really think that your position gives you special permissions and authority to go around the law? Or if you and Congress sneak around it, is that what you want to set a leadership example of? And by the way, this is how the world will look at it too. I am HUGELY glad to see this review. Someone with the sense to stop and think and look things over. I grant that is not easy to do midway into something. Kudos.

    Obama's Drone Program besides reinforcing his hypocrisy, also validates Bush administration's more reasonable programs: wiretapping and water-boarding. In retrospective, Bush was right when he declared the "War on Terror". He was vilified by the liberal media for his prudent decisions – the very media that is now largely silent when it comes to condemning the Drone Program. Sigh!

      this is not an ideological battle between left vs right, GOP vs Dems, Statism vs liberty, socialism vs free markets. This is ethnic warfare against white people.

      Why are hostile globalist elite supporting Israel as a Jewish ethnostate with Jewish only immigration, but turning white majority Europe, North America into a multi-ethnic multi-cultural Gulag with dystopian non-White colonization?

      Why do gullible Whites kowtow to hostile Jewish elite, who maim White soldiers in bankrupting wars, infiltrate and subvert our central banks and intelligence agencies, indoctrinate us in classrooms and mass media, impose trillions in debt, and plunder our wages?

      East Asia is 99% yellow. Africa is 99% Black. West Asia is 99% Brown. But 3rd world colonizers are annihilating Whites, just as Chinese colonizers are annihilating Tibet. This is the endgame.

      "Native" Americans are not native. They invaded from East Asia. Whites were not the only slave owners, imperialists. Muslims, Jews, China, India, Mayans, Africans all are guilty of slavery, imperialism. Whites were victims of Arab, Jewish, Turk, African, Mongol imperialism, slavery.

      Gullible Whites should reject suicidal anti-White Jewish ideologies like libertarianism, feminism, liberalism, socialism. White people should reject venomous smears of racism, collectivism.

      Love to all, hatred to no one, but White people must unite and organize to advance their families, their fertility, their interests. Reading list:

    If u r allowed to carry machine guns then the government and be allowed to have drones. The truth remains some Americans are trying to attack other Americans like Jared lee lough ear, Adam Lanza, kkk etc.

    The cheapest and most effective way to eliminate Islamic terrorists, Islamic clerics and devout Muslims is to pay bounties to Muslim women to get rid of them and provide the women with exit visas to avoid retaliation.

    As long as government of countries where these terrorists hide okays, I don't see any issue in killing them, government of Pakistan does not count.
