Greenwald: Obama's secret "Kill List" (video)

Glenn Greenwald,

The New York Times revealed this week that President Obama [thanks to his friends Dick Cheney, G.W. Bush, Don Rumsfeld, Condi Rice, John Ashcroft, and John Yoo] keeps and personally oversees a "secret kill list" containing the names and photos of individuals targeted for assassination in the secretive US drone war.

According to the Times, Obama signs off on EVERY targeted killing in [the US's lesser known wars on] Yemen and Somalia and the more complex or risky strikes in Pakistan. Individuals on the list include US citizens, as well teenage girls as young as 17 years old.

"I really do believe it’s literally the most radical power that a government and president can seize, and yet the Obama administration has seized [it] and exercised it aggressively with little controversy."

He reveals that Obama had "indefinite detention" inserted into NDAA, as Cenk Uygur (The Young Turks, is so steamed about, when madmen Levin and Lieberman had never meant to go that far. B.S. Obama (Barack O'Romney) represents not the people of the USA but the actual "heads of state," the MIC (military-industrial complex).
