Obama’s Drones Are ‘A Hell of a Lot Deadlier’ Than Waterboarding
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough took on the the Senate’s CIA “torture” report with a comparison we’ve made as well: drone strikes. Summing up the program, Scarborough said, “Let’s just go ahead and just kill them all, and if we kill five-year-old girls and 85-year-old grandmas, so be it. We feel better about ourselves because that seems cleaner. That’s what liberals are saying today. That’s what Joe Biden’s been saying, that’s what Barack Obama’s been saying.” He continued, “The drone program went into overdrive on January 21st, 2009. And when you talk about five years from now, 10 years from now, the information comes out about this drone program … and people actually report on this drone program, it’s going to look a hell of a lot worse, a hell of a lot deadlier, a hell of a lot more random, and a hell of a lot more inhumane than waterboarding three prisoners in 2002 and 2003.” And in the meantime, Obama is diminishing our human intelligence by killing terrorists instead of interrogating them.
