Drones, The US Military “should not be a 911 Service,” While the DHS Stockpiles Ammo
Outgoing Secy of Defs, Leon Panetta, said that our military “should not be a 911 service.” Who then were the four innocent lives lost in Benghazi supposed to call for backup?
Our commander in chief, Secy of State and Secy of Defs still haven’t been penalized for having gone MIA during the devastating assault in Benghazi. Keeping Americans safe is the president’s No.1 duty. If this president had been a military officer and disappeared during battle, he would be court-martialed.
And Hillary wants to run for the presidency when she turned her back on Benghazi?
As John Bolton said, “There’s nobody home in this administration when it comes to national security.”
Concern is growing across our country as to why the Dept of Homeland Security (DHS) is looking to “purchase” another 21.6 million rounds of ammo after it had bought 1.6 billion rounds only 10 months ago. In comparison, our military used 70 million rounds/year during the Iraq War. This administration is intent on shattering our 2nd Amendment and leaving Afghanistan, so why the inordinate ammo purchase? Americans deserve action. Congress needs to halt any further DHS purchases—now!
Why has the Justice Dept targeted American killings with drones, circumventing due process under the 14th Amendment? The president does not have the constitutional authority to unilaterally deploy military drone strikes without Congressional authorization—as that is an act of war.
Did Congress again not read what the president signed into law in 2012—that the FAA is to throw American airspace wide open for drones by 9/30/15?
The DHS’s 2011 report labeled U.S. potential terrorists as military veterans, pro life supporters, supporters of states’ rights or ones who are against illegal immigration.
Currently nothing is stopping this drone kill list to be expanded domestically.
Why the dramatic increase in drone strikes with the collateral damage this president is leaving behind?
Now with more Americans killed by drones than were water boarded—which this president opposed because of its inhumanity—it’s time that Congress acts. We are losing our freedom and privacy at morph speed.
Transparency…hogwash. Cabinet meetings have dwindled from six to only three in 2012. Apply to become a cabinet member: Great pay, virtually no meetings and absolutely no repercussions for gross misconduct. What a life!
