    and a response diary to that one too if need be.  There is not enough conversation about the drone assassination program.

    If a Republican president was doing these same things, some of the most dishonest and biggest hypocrites on earth, the hyperpartisan Left, would be be freaking out about it. There would be diary after diary here at dkos with a huge amount of support to shut down this Obama drone program if there was an R next to his name.  The righteous phonies would be shouting from the rooftops and marching in the streets.

    But instead, they are either supporting it or playing a significant role in keeping it as quiet as possible, helping with the cover up, pummeling or scorning people who speak out about it.  Some, like a couple of the ones you were dealing with yesterday, were outright lying about the situation with Awlaki's son or making up apologetic details about the strike when the administration has refused to answer any questions about it.  Where did they pull those details from?

    And then there are the people who picked one word from the diary to condemn it with.  It's really interesting how they will overlook the slaughter of women and children but they will protest over one word in a diary. Talk about being twisted.

    In any case, the more discussion and debate about this, the better, in whatever form it comes.  I can think of no foreign policy that is more harmful to us and the rest of the world than the one this president has created and embraced, judge jury and executioner in any country that he chooses, and worse, it looks like he has essentially outsourced this to his National security team, the leader of which was not elected and could not even be put into a position that required confirmation because he was a staunch supporter of the Bush/Cheney torture program.
