John Brennan – Caricature (Photo credit: DonkeyHotey)
I couldn’t write my blog yesterday. My computer was not working, and spent all day fixing it. The hackers are back to their old games. Don’t these people have anything to do with their lives? I sometimes don’t believe what I’m going through. There must be a way for us to get information out to people. There has to be!
I did notice that “targets” were the topic of conversation. Not us targets, of course. The news was full of reports of drones, and American citizens who were thought to be drone targets of U.S. government overseas. But at least the term “targets” was out there.
“Targets” is the term used by the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing held yesterday. The Committee was questioning John Brennan, White House pick for C.I.A. Chief. The Committee had questions about the drone program and its targeting of Americans overseas, and how a target is thought to be guilty, even if no proof exist that the target is dangerous. The target can be killed if he appears to be of “imminent” danger to Americans.
In my opinion, the Senate Intelligence Committee is a joke. They really don’t want to find out what the truth is about Americans overseas becoming drone targets. All they’re doing is trying to show Americans that they’re doing something to protect our rights. Yeah, they are. Thanks for the laugh Senate Intelligence Committee.
But it would be nice if something came out of this committee. Maybe some information would come out about what they’re doing to Americans here in the good old U.S. of A.
But I doubt the Senate Committee will find out anything. All they are doing is wasting our money and nothing else. And, of course, all the senators are getting free television time. The senators all love seeing themselves on television looking like they’re doing something.
What a joke the Senate Committee is.
Stop wasting our money, Senate Intelligence Committee. Go back to doing nothing, and stop taking up space on television.
