Vote Obama For Unaccountable Drone Warfare. Vote Romney For Unaccountable Drone Warfare.
Both candidates agree, secret kill lists and unaccountable CIA ‘double tap’ drone strikes are necessary
Oct 23, 2012
Last night’s debate highlighted the fact that Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are in full agreement with each other that secret unmanned US missile strikes, documented to have killed thousands of innocent people, are “necessary” and “right “.
When Romney was asked about the US policy of drone strikes in Pakistan and elsewhere, he responded:
“Well, I believe that we should use any and all means necessary to take out people who pose a threat to us and our friends around the world. And it’s widely reported that drones are being used in drone strikes, and I support that entirely and feel the president was right to up the usage of that technology, and believe that we should continue to use it, to continue to go after the people who represent a threat to this nation and to our friends.”
Indeed, perhaps the only difference you’ll get with Romney is that he’ll use even more drones…
“But let me also note that, as I said earlier, we’re going to have to do more than just going after leaders and — and killing bad guys, important as that is.”
