These are human beings you are talking about, Mr. President. Please explain to me how murder by drone, whatever the body count, is no longer murder. Murdering people with efficiency is not any more justifiable that murdering people without consideration. The only comfort I take from your statements is that your compulsion to lie suggests (wishful thinking?) you might feel an ounce of shame for your authorized actions, shame enough that you feel the need to hide what you did like a child does after breaking his mother’s favorite vase. Be ashamed, Mr. President. Be very ashamed.
