So the moral of this political issue is that, once again, as long as your guy/party is doing it....it's right. My god political hypocrisy is annoying.

I hope they take the morality of Drones seriously, because as many have been pointing out, that Drone technology isn't going to be far-fetched for other nations. We can set a standard here; let's hope it's not the wrong one.

In other news 67% of Republicans believe Video Games are bigger threat than guns. Oi vey.

We're talking hypocrisy, not stupidity. The Republicans did this during Bush when they all but went silent on spending as Bush kept increasing the scope of the federal government. But it worries me when something that should be at the core of the party/political ideal is so easily cast aside the moment it becomes politically inconvenient. If this was Bush, liberals would be outraged. Just like conservatives are now outraged about the growing federal government but were silent during Bush.

If neither side can pull it's head out of it's own ass long enough to see reason on subjects like these, it's another kick in the nuts for the future. Hell, the best liberal "voice" out there on this subject is on a damn comedy channel. Both sides have got to stop this and the stakes seem to keep getting higher each time.

You can say a lot of things about Obama being a "socialist" and all that nonsense but when it comes to foreign policy, he may as well be a Republican. The guy loves to see **** blow up. Surprising. I wouldn't have predicted this kind of approach to foreign policy and war after the 2008 election but after four years, you just kinda have to resign yourself to "this is who he is".

Let's also acknowledge that the CIA and the Pentagon, save the guys at the top, aren't party-political entities. They are always going to be hawkish in terms of the policy they recommend and wish to implement, whoever is in the Whitehouse.

Or he's just making up for two hundred or so years of oppression to his black brethren.

By all reports, Obama and Brennen are very close on all of these matters. The point here is that Obama is a hawk on this and if the very same actions were being done by a Republican the left would be falling all over themselves to call that person a war criminal. There guy does it and they're like "well, maybe we don't know everything he does..." and other similar crap.

Same as Republicans can't say enough about Obama's spending while they were silent on Bush. The issues just seem to be getting more and more critical that these hypocrisies are happening on. I mean, jesus, do you want some idiot like Bush or Carter with the ability to nail you with a drone with this little oversight?
