The source said he decided to provide these documents to The Intercept because he believes the public has a right to understand the process by which people are placed on kill lists and ultimately assassinated on orders from the highest echelons of the U.S. government. “This outrageous explosion of watchlisting — of monitoring people and racking and stacking them on lists, assigning them numbers, assigning them ‘baseball cards,’ assigning them death sentences without notice, on a worldwide battlefield — it was, from the very first instance, wrong,” the source said.
We need to do more to catch and prosecute these lunatics who expose secrets because they have some sort of delusion that the US is doing something wrong.
The US has every right to make wartime strikes against military targets.
Ah. But who designates something as a wartime strike?
And who designates something as a target?
And if the US has the right to make wartime strikes against military targets, of what probably are enemy nations... Do said nations have the same right against the US?
The fact that the US government runs a global assassination program with little debate and with so far as I know no good argument that this is anything but satisfying short term goals at the costs of long term best interests is just one of many proofs that we as a nation are in big trouble.
Any thought that America was still morally fit to be a world leader went out the window awhile ago, though very few other nations are either.
What this really is: evidence that I am right that the current world order is in a death spiral. Next up will be a global government for sure, what else the new world order will look like remains to be determined.
