Obama approved drone missile strike in Pakistan

'change we can believe in'

Obama has been ‘blooded’ by his handlers. Obama, fully cognisant of the consequences of his action, approved a drone missile strike that targeted and killed innocent civilians in Pakistan! Get used to it because it’s the nature of modern American warfare (MURDER). For every targeted individual at least 10 innocent civilians also die; missiles launched from 30,000 feet could hardly be considered precision weapons. ‘Pilots’ flying drone missions from secret US locations are able to treat their job like any other 9 to 5 occupation; ‘collateral damage’ is an 'unfortunate' consequence of modern American criminal warfare -- where is Geneva?

Obama formally sanctions the inappropriate use of RC weapon

No smell or blood stains the surreal images on the drone controller’s VDU. Disinfected digital images do not deliver the reality of death or the screams of the innocent!

Obama’s signed order brands him a war criminal and places him squarely in the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld war criminal category – does anyone doubt the mission’s real purpose, which had less to do with targeting the Taliban than intentionally compromising Obama in order to guarantee his allegiance and ensure that he would forever be unable to pursue the former administration for war crimes? Learn the methods and vile nature of US politics today.

Such is the detestable methodology of US politics, which has more in common with mafia tactics than anything else; COMPLICITY and COMPROMISE ensures the status quo, sleep easy now, dubya, Dick and crew!

Not quite, in your arrogance you failed to consider public outrage and a free world sick and tired of American murder tactics. American actions propel it toward a certainty, an outcome that it forced the world to apply. Remember this short essay when you are nuked, and remember that it could have been avoided.

This is the price for failing yourselves, your nation and the world. You have become a vile detestable thing that must be eradicated in order to preserve the peace of the free world!

As history bears witness, you have been formally advised!

Veterans sue CIA for 'diabolical' tests
by staff report via gan - Press TV Sunday, Jan 25 2009, 7:24pm

US veterans have sued CIA on charges of drug and mind control experiments, urging Washington to contact all the subjects of the testing.

One of the plaintiffs explained how a few days after getting out of army boot camp he was enticed by notices calling for volunteers to test uniforms and equipment, the Guardian reported Monday.

But instead he found himself in a CIA-funded drug testing and mind-control program, according to a lawsuit that six veterans filed last week in a federal court in San Francisco against the Pentagon and the CIA.

The 60-year-old Frank Rochelle and five other veterans insist that the government needs to contact all the subjects of the experiments and provide them with proper healthcare.

The testing, which has been the subject of congressional hearings, promoted the US department of veterans affairs to release a pamphlet in 2003, saying nearly 7,000 soldiers had been involved in the program -- codenamed MKUltra.

According to the lawsuit, some 250 chemicals, ranging from hallucinogens such as LSD and PCP to biological and chemical agents had been used on the subjects during the experiments between 1950 and 1975 at Edgewood Arsenal in Maryland.

Some of the volunteers, according to the complaint, have received implants containing electrical devices that may control their behavior.

The veterans maintain they were assured that the experiments were harmless and that their health would be carefully monitored, not just during the tests but afterward, too.

Despite their promise, the doctors conducting the experiments could not have known whether the drugs were safe because safety was one of the issues to be examined, Rochelle said.

He recalled being administered an aerosol which kept him drugged for two and a half days with hallucinations.

Rochelle said those who just tested equipment were mistreated. "Their idea of testing a gas mask was to give you a faulty one and put you in a gas chamber," he said. "It was just diabolical."

Now rated 60 percent disabled by the veterans affairs department, Rochelle says he has breathing problems, post-traumatic stress disorder, sleeping difficulties and poor short-term memory.

2009 McClatchy Newspapers

[The US military continues to administer large quantities of amphetamines and other 'combat enhancing' drugs today without adequately informing hapless personnel of the dire consequences involved in their use.

Accelerated 'burn-out,' extreme paranoia and disorientation are among a host of other bizarre psychological and physical symptoms that vets suffer today.

Government strategy is to intentionally misdiagnose all such symptoms as PTSD related and transfer responsibility to the victim/veteran -- what's new?

Veterans, justifiably dissatisfied with government forever shirking its responsibilities, are forming self-help groups and taking class actions against the military, government agencies and the pharmaceutical companies -- we have had enough!]
