A eleição do Assassino-em-Chefe dos EUA

Uma reportagem do New York Times mostra como o presidente dos EUA, qualquer que seja ele, gasta um bom tempo definindo a lista de quem será assassinado por supostas ligações com grupos terroristas.


"Thanks to a long New York Times piece by Jo Becker and Scott Shane, “Secret ‘Kill List’ Proves a Test of Obama’s Principles and Will,” we now know that the president has spent startling amounts of time overseeing the “nomination” of terrorist suspects for assassination via the remotely piloted drone program he inherited from President George W. Bush and which he has expanded exponentially. Moreover, that article was based largely on interviews with “three dozen of his current and former advisers.” In other words, it was essentially an administration-inspired piece—columnist Robert Scheer calls it “planted”—on a “secret” program the president and those closest to him are quite proud of and want to brag about in an election year".
