David Gardner, " 'Flawless': U.S. Navy snipers killed three Somali pirates with just three shots... in the dark, from the deck of a rolling ship." 14th April 2009
In the dark, from the deck of a rolling ship, U.S. Navy snipers had to take aim into a covered lifeboat 75ft away that was also pitching in the choppy seas.
They needed to kill three Somali pirates - one of whom was inside the pilot house of the lifeboat - and they needed to do it simultaneously to save the life of hostage captain Richard Phillips.
Barack Obama had given his approval for the Navy to use lethal force to free captain Richard Phillips, who had spent five days as the prisoner of the heavily armed mercenaries.
The United States has stepped up its attacks by pilotless drones in Pakistan since a suicide bomber killed seven Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operatives at a U.S. base in eastern Afghanistan on December 30. ... “One missile hit a compound and the other hit a vehicle outside it. Six militants were killed”, one of the Pakistani officials said. The death toll had initially been put at three. Last Thursday, a U.S. drone targeted Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud in the South Waziristan region on the Afghan border but it was known if he was among 12 militants killed.

The top hierarchy of al-Qaeda has taken such a hit from US missile strikes that Osama bin Laden and his deputy have had to replace people in the terrorist organisation with men they have never met, according to Western intelligence sources. A dozen of al-Qaeda’s “senior management” have been killed by Predator drone attacks....
How many civilians have been killed in the U.S. drone war in Pakistan? The number could be as high as 320 innocents, according to an analysis released today by the New America Foundation. That’s about a third of the 1,000 or so people slain in the robotic aircraft attacks since 2006. ... In April, the News of Pakistan claimed that Predator and Reaper attacks had only killed 14 militants; the rest were bystanders. Last month, the Long War Journal estimated that about 10 percent of the casualties were civilian.http://www.wired.com/
There is a ton of stuff more. I grabbed a few pieces to see just how cold-blooded a killer Obama is.
That sissy Bush had people captured and imprisoned and so on. Not so with Obama, whom I am starting to like. He just issues order to have them splattered like bugs on the windscreen, smeared like rotten jelly in the dust and the rocks of far away places while he and his colleagues monitor it all on video. I can see he, like me, is getting off on this. I like this cold-blooded killer of a president. Keep on murdering jihadis, Obama, and I just might not hate you as much as I usually do. You are one sick fuck of a killer, but you have a long way to go to impress me enough to get me to vote for you. Yes, killing bin Laden and shooting his wife and the others was pretty good. Some might call it murder, but you and I call it campaigning for reluctant votes. A few more big time murders and Obama will be right up there with my hero Dexter Morgan.
