What took the Spanish monarchy 350 years to do, Barack Obama has managed surpass in a mere six. As reported by the PJ Media news portal (via Google News) on Feb. 7, 2015, a minimum of 2,464 people have been dispatched by Obama’s drone campaign since his assumption of office in 2009. Despite the American Chief Executive’s pontificating at the Spanish Crown’s 350-year long inquest done “in the Name of Christ” during a recent National Prayer Breakfast, the cold hard facts show that The New York Times-dubbed “Obama’s secret kill list” has dispatched more humans to the hereafter than the Spanish Inquisition could have ever hoped for.
Provocative photograph, isn’t it? I hope so — it was meant to be.
For those of us old enough to remember, the image of Nguyễn Văn Lém, formerly of the Viet-Cong, at the receiving end of a field expedient execution at the hands of Saigon’s Chief of Police General Nguyễn Ngọc Loan was the iconic anti-war instrument of propaganda to end all instruments of propaganda … ever.
What the anti-war mob never told us is that Lém’s execution happened during the Tet Offensive, martial law was declared and the shooting was in the wake of Lém assassinating a Saigon police deputy commander. Oh, I almost forgot, Lém has just slaughtered the wife and children of said police deputy.
