The once a constitutional lawyer and Nobel Peace Prize winner has now taken on the role of White House executioner, overseeing the regular top secret Tuesday counterterrorism meeting to designate terrorists for kill. Those on your Kill List become targets of our country’s drone warfare, which leads to the deaths of countless innocent civilians in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia.

Drones (unmanned aerial vehicles) have become the signature weapons of the Obama administration's air strikes in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The President has recently begun overseeing a weekly meeting with his security officials in the White House to create a Kill List of supposed terrorists for the drones to target. However, these lethal weapons of war often miss their mar, resulting in the deaths of many innocent people, including children. Since the inception of this covert program, as many as 3,000 people, including hundreds of noncombatants and even American citizens, have been killed.
