I'd also like to point out that Ted Rall is about as left-wing as you can possibly get. So this assumption that liberals "give Obama a pass" on everything is clearly bunk.

It would be more appropos if it were W or Cheney's kids. But killing with drones is so much worse than sending thousands of soldiers to be massacred for no goddamned reason.

So it's better that an innocent civilian in Yemen or Pakistan gets killed by a drone than a soldier?

Fuck yeah it's better! Our leaders have decided that brown people must die. Better a robot do the killing than an actual American who could be doing something productive instead. And trust me, nothing productive is happening in Yemen.

So, people wouldn't be as disturbed if Obama sent soldiers to do his killing than robots in the sky?

Point taken.

However, in fairness I don't think there are many U.S. Presidents (with the possible exception of Carter) who don't have blood on their hands in terms of their foreign policy.

Well, considering it's been a year and nothing has been done, that is basically what she did.

That makes about as much sense as saying, "Well I, personally, can't cure ALS, so I'm not going to bother donating or taking part in an awareness campaign."
