Obama's Drones Made Simple

Before the 2012 election, Obama told John Stewart of The Daily Show: “One of the things we’ve got to do is put a legal architecture in place, and we need Congressional help in order to do that, to make sure that not only am I reined in but any president is reined in terms of some of the decisions that we’re making.” 

In a development that will shock nobody, no such legal architecture has been put in place to "reign in" Obama or any future POTUS.

Obama’s drone wars have killed more than 2400 civilians in countries that pose no threat to us and with whom we are not at war, and continue to mock international law and the U.S. constitution.

Among those targeted and killed have been United States citizens.
