US To Disclose Drone Strike Deaths

“White House To Include Both Enemy And Civilian Casualties Since 2009 “ After a long policy of secrecy the Obama Administration is suddenly saying they will be transparent, and even sharing the complete record from the present back to 2009. Nice, but REALLY? This has all the signs of being a forced release in order to get in front of much more damaging exposure. At this point we can only guess what it may be, but based on the promised scope of the Administrations release we need to expect that the “complete” list will not be that at all.  If they don’t leave the egregious murders off the list and then launder the rest to seem justifiable, then they will have changed from lions into pussycats. Before rushing to judgement that they have told everything, we should look around to see what else has happened that they are reacting to. The Obama Administration will soon […] Read More

2013: Obama Admits He’s A Sociopath: “I’m Really Good At Killing People”

Things are not looking so great for President Obama these days. With his failed healthcare promises causing outrage across the nation, people are beginning to realize that he isn’t the “savior” many had thought he was going to be. In a new book titled Double Down by journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann (authors of Game Change), Obama is thrown to the forefront of controversy yet again as the book quotes Obama as saying he’s “really good at killing people” with regards to drone strikes. The authors/journalists wrote a best-selling book on the 2008 presidential elections (Game Change) detailing the gritty innards of the fast paced and cut throat campaign. Double Down takes after its predecessor revealing the immorality that took place during the 2012 election. The book has been gaining widespread attention for its depiction of Obama as a sociopath of sorts, having legitimized drone assassination during his run as […] Read More

2013: Solar Drones To Stay Aloft For Years At A Time

Nicholas West Activist Post Even as the debate intensifies over the scope of drone warfare and surveillance, significant upgrades continue and the drone industry booms. Recently we have seen the Navy successfully test autonomous drone takeoffs and landings at sea, while Boeing has begun to retrofit its decommissioned F-16s into pilotless fighter jets. This trend toward a future of autonomous fleets of large-scale war fighters is developing in tandem with the trend toward miniaturization and the mimicking of nature itself to hide drone tech in plain sight. The latest developments focus on ways to not only get new drone models aloft via remote control, or through their own autonomous decisions, but how to keep them there for as long as possible  – perhaps even permanently. Toward the end of 2011 a program called MUSIC was made public and revealed the goals of Future Combat Systems – essentially a network of ground-based and sky-based systems that could […] Read More

2013: NSA document: critics of US drone program considered ‘threats,’ ‘adversaries,’ ‘propagandists’

By Madison Ruppert Editor of End the Lie An anti-drone protest in San Diego on April 5, 2013 (Image credit: Steve Rhodes/Flickr) A top secret internal US government website states that opponents to the U.S. drone program are to be considered “adversaries,” “threats” and “propagandists,” according to a Guardian report. This is hardly surprising, given that pretty much everything is considered an indicator of potential terrorist activity, including undermining the government’s narrative. The website, which looks similar to Wikipedia, contains entries written only by individuals “with top secret clearance and public key infrastructure certificates.” These certificates are cards that give unique access to restricted parts of NSA systems, according a Guardian interview with Edward Snowden. All of the entries are “peer reviewed,” according to Snowden, which means that the statements reflect official government positions. In listing “threats to unmanned aerial vehicles,” the expected physical dangers, including “air defense threats,” […] Read More
