Reflections on a Bestial Culture, Ready and Eager for Slaughter (I)

Arthur Silber reminds us once again of the abominable evil of Obama's "secret kill list". Americans have become accustomed to living in a horror film, with our country's supposed "leaders" playing the parts of the inhuman monsters.

For now, focus on the fact that all the details offered in the article come from these interviews with "three dozen of [Obama's] current and former advisers." A number of commentators have noted this passage, but I've yet to see anyone identify its full meaning, especially when we consider the almost unanimous lack of reaction to the story. Given the subject matter, we can be certain that these "advisers" would not have provided numerous details about the "Kill List" unless the Obama administration wanted them to. In other words: this is the story the government wants to tell. This is the story the government wants Americans -- and the watching world -- to know. I state again that the central theme of the story is that Obama and his closest advisers are engaged in a systematic program of murder, targeting people about whom they know nothing in terms of the factors they themselves claim demand their urgent concern. That is to say: they murder anyone they wish, anywhere in the world, for any reason they choose -- or for no reason at all.
