So like most of you I was less than thrilled when the media announced that an American citizen had been targeted by drones and killed, without the benefit of a trial. I didn’t bother to blog about it because I try to stay away from blogging politics, and besides, everyone else said it better than I could.
Then today I was catching up over and Pophat, and was reminded of a specific fact: Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize way back when he took office. Remember that? Now share with me the irony of a Nobel Peace Laureate who gave the ok (there are varying accounts as to how much more than “ok” he had in the decision) to target a drone at an American citizen who hadn’t been judged guilty by a court of his peers.
