SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY! (S 2040: Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act – JASTA) Congress Overrides Obama’s Veto 1st Time Allowing 9/11 Victims’ Families To Sue Saudi Arabia, Which Violates Sovereign Immunity. The President Warns USA Setting A Dangerous Precedent, Which Could Come Back To Bite USA; Obama Is Right If Your Prime Directive As President Is To Protect US World Interests Whether We Are Right Or Wrong! But Tabacco Sees Silver Lining! Just Maybe Our Politicos Have Sown The Seeds Of Our Own Comeuppance! Those, America Has Exploited & Oppressed, May Now Sue USA For Our Own Inappropriateness, Iniquitousness & Incautiousness! The World Can Now ‘Hoist US On Our Own Petard’! We Bemoan ISIS, When We Should Fear Our Own Congress & Our Own Irresistible & Unrestrained Military Superiority Combined With A Callous Disregard For The Lives Of Weaker Foreign Peoples! Has Congress Accomplished What ISIS & All Its Terror Cannot?

ZAKARIA: President Obama has been in office for 2,812 days. And that time, he has vetoed exactly 12 bills. This week, congress voted overwhelmingly to override a veto for the first time in his presidency. The law allows the family members of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia. The White House called the override the single most embarrassing thing the senate has possibly done in more than 30 years.

In return, congress wondered why the administration would stop victims from seeking justice. Let me bring in CNN’s Jeff Toobin and the former CIA director, Michael Hayden to give us some much-needed context here.

Jeff, let me ask you, what exactly does this law do and how unprecedented is it?

JEFF TOOBIN, LEGAL ANALYST: Well, the law is designed very specifically so that the 9/11 family members, victims of the terror attack, can sue Saudi Arabia and at least initially begin a lawsuit alleging involvement by the government in the attacks. Continue reading

OBAMA’S KILLER DRONE WAR FAILURES Exposed By 4-Former Air Force Drone Operators! Drone Operators Refer To Children On Their Screens As, “Fun-Sized Terrorists” & “Cutting The Grass Before It Grows Too Long” Just Before They Murder These Kids. Whistleblowers Risk Prosecution For Outing Drone Kills Of Innocent Civilians, Not Just The Targets. Those ‘Collateral Damages’ FUEL GROWTH OF TERROR! Why These Air Force Vets Want Drone War To Stop! How PENTAGON Exploits Your Juveniles’ Video Game Culture To WIRE YOUTH FOR DRONE WAR: America The Beautiful! See New Documentary ‘DRONE’! This President Asserts His & America’s Humanity While He Commits GENOCIDE Comparable To Hitler’s Nazis Rather Than Real War On Terrorists – If There Is An Anti-Christ, It Must Be Barack Obama! Soldiers Commit SUICIDE Only If They Believe They Have Just Cause – Obama Gives Muslim Terrorists ‘JUST CAUSE’! Terrorists Are NOT The Only Ones, Who Train Children To Commit Murder – America Does It Too – And In Your Name! Have We Forgotten My Lai? PTSD!

TABACCO: Because his middle name is ‘Hussein’, Republicans used to call President Obama a ‘Muslim’ – they call him that no longer. Even Opportunist Republicans realize that tactic is ridiculous. You might as well call Hitler a ‘Pacifist’! Together, Bush & Obama have murdered Million$ of Innocent Muslims in the name of ‘National Security’! If you believe that Excuse, you are equally as Guilty of the Genocide of God’s children.

JESSELYN RADACK: They’re taking an enormous and very brave public risk in speaking out. I have clients in the national security and intelligence communities, who have done nothing more than tell the truth about some of America’s darkest secrets, like torture and secret surveillance—and now, in this case, drones—and those clients, a number of them, have been prosecuted under the Espionage Act—and Edward Snowden, of course, another one, is living in exile—not because they’ve done anything wrong or even revealed classified information, which they’re not here to do today, but because they have embarrassed the U.S. government. All of these men—a number of them, half of them, have complained internally, to no avail. They have gone through internal channels.

And we’re hoping that today, by going public, that this will have more of an influence in the debate, because somehow there’s a complete disconnect between these terrorist attacks in Paris and elsewhere and the fact that the drone program has fueled ISIS and al-Qaeda and a number of terrorist groups, and that really needs to be addressed.

MICHAEL HAAS: Yes, the term “fun-sized terrorists” was used to just sort of denote children that we’d see on screen.

AMY GOODMAN: What was it?

MICHAEL HAAS: “Fun-sized terrorists”.

AMY GOODMAN: “Fun-sized terrorists”?

MICHAEL HAAS: Yes! Other terms we’d use would be “cutting the grass before it grows too long”, just doing whatever you can to try to make it easier to kill whatever’s on screen. And the culture is—that mentality is very much nurtured within the drone community, because these—every Hellfire shot is sort of lauded and applauded, and we don’t really examine who exactly was killed, but just that it was an effective shot and the missile hit its target.

NOAM CHOMSKY, World-Renowned Political Dissident, Linguist And Author, On American Atrocities Past & Present Including His Speech In The United Nations Blasting US Support Of Israel (You Know You Won’t See That On American MSM) From Democracy Now! Interviews, March 2-3, 2015, On Cuba, Venezuela, Edward Snowden, Drones, USA’s Terrorism And History Of Slavery & Racism. The Rest Of The Planet Already Knows America’s Hypocrisies & Abominations! It’s Time Americans Finally Knew The Unadulterated Specifics About Itself! Truth Is In The Details!

NOAM CHOMSKY: The world has been totally opposed to this. The votes at the General Assembly—you can’t do it at the Security Council because the U.S. vetoes everything, but at the General Assembly, the votes are just overwhelming. I think the last one was 182 to two, you know, U.S. and Israel, and sometimes they pick up Papua or something like that. This has been going on year after year. The U.S. is utterly isolated, not just on this issue, many others.

Finally, notice that Obama didn’t end the sanctions. In fact, he didn’t even end the restrictions, many of the restrictions on travel and so on. They made a mild gesture towards moving towards normalization of relations. That’s presented here—the way it’s presented here is; we have to test Cuba to see if our long—as Obama put it, our efforts to improve the situation in Cuba have failed, right? Big efforts to improve the situation—terrorism, sanctions! The sanctions are really incredible. So, if, say, Sweden was sending medical equipment somewhere, which had Cuban nickel in it, that had to be banned, you know, things like that. Continue reading

When Ali Pulled “Rope-A-Dope” On Foreman & Leonard “Hit & Ran” Duran Into “No Mas!”, Those Weren’t Examples Of Courage, But At Least They Were In The Same Ring! USA Drones, Flying Over Muslim Countries While “Brave” US “Pilots” Operate From Safety Of CREECH AFB In Nevada, Is A New LOW IN MILITARY COURAGE! Now Gov’t Plans Surveillance In USA To Delete BILL OF RIGHTS For You Americans Too!

Former CIA Director Michael Hayden has openly criticized Obama administration use of pilot-less drones to assassinate suspected militants around the world. Hayden said, “Right now, there isn’t a government on the planet that agrees with our legal rationale for these operations, except for Afghanistan and maybe Israel.” The drone program began under President George W. Bush.. Hayden also criticized U.S. assassination of U.S. born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen. Hayden said, “We needed a court order to eavesdrop on him, but we didn’t need a court order to kill him. Isn’t that something!”.. our drone attacks kill almost 50 civilians for every “militant” we target. Continue reading
