Despite their justification, this is outright, unconstitutional murder. Mr. Obama should be tried as a war criminal by a tribunal conducted like the Nuremberg Trials.
The White House believes Americans delight in bloodshed so much that they’ll applaud President Obama’s drone murders and yell for more. These murders are unconstitutional because only the Congress has the power and authority to declare war and none has been declared. They are also illegal by national and international law. Most of the deaths are civilian deaths. Participants, including the President, may one day be tried and convicted for war crimes and for crimes against humanity.
During World War II, Japan launched thousands of these 30-foot tall, hydrogen-filled balloons. They were carried by the jet stream across the Pacific to the United States. Each balloon carried five bombs, designed to set fires and kill. It was the world’s first intercontinental weapon system.

Dear Senator Hatch,
I wonder if I don’t contact you frequently and beg you to stop the offensive wars, pre-emptive assassinations and cowardly drone killings, what hope do I have for salvation?
