Barack Obama Says He’ll Overlook Civilian Deaths in Syria
I have the awful feeling no one’s in charge of maintaining the morality and ethics I grew up believing were standards the United States held dear.
I counted on Constitutional lawyer and Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama to do so but no. Shame! Shame on you Barack Obama! What are you doing?
Have the war mongerers gotten to you such that they have you emulating Netanyahu?
White House Exempts Syria Airstrikes From Tight Standards on Civilian Deaths
The White House has acknowledged for the first time that strict standards President Obama imposed last year to prevent civilian deaths from U.S. drone strikes will not apply to U.S. military operations in Syria and Iraq.
A White House statement to Yahoo News confirming the looser policy came in response to questions about reports that as many as a dozen civilians, including women and young children, were killed when a Tomahawk missile struck the village of Kafr Daryan in Syria’s Idlib province on the morning of Sept. 23.
But one former Obama administration official said the new White House statement raises questions about how the U.S. intends to proceed in the conflict in Syria and Iraq, and under what legal authorities.
