Killing Children is OK, But Don't Threaten Them

This past Friday a U.S. drone strike killed twelve people in North Waziristan, Pakistan, according to the New York Times. Pakistani authorities report that "women and children were among the dead." This strike was part of the ongoing assassination campaign that has been escalated by President Obama, the same President Obama whose Justice Department thinks that making mere threats against the children of prominent terrorist detainees for interrogation purposes constitutes a prosecutable offense.

To recap: 

Blowing children apart with a hellfire -- not a problem. 

Scaring a terrorist by threatening his children -- abuse that needs to be prosecuted.


  1. I'm beginning to wonder if you're actually American, UNRR. I mean, think of the (living) children!

  2. Since it's summer, my son has had friends over the house constantly. So unfortunately I can't avoid thinking about children. The constant yelling, blaring video games, and other assorted noise doesn't let me forget them :).
