Last Thought on the Kill List

I have no problem with the Commander-in-Chief having a kill list. It’s only logical that such a list exist. Past presidents would hide behind plausible deniability.

When Reagan ordered the hit on Khaddafi in 1986, I’m sure the Mad Dog of the Middle East was on someone’s kill list. When the U.S. hunted down Admiral Yamato during WWII, he was on a kill list. We declared this extradition action in the Middle East to be a war, and in war, a combatant automatically ends up on a kill list. If Bush had one, and I’m sure he did, I would not have had a problem with it.

The press is just upset that the man with the audacity of hope also has the audacity to kill these guys as efficiently and coldly as possible.

Who knew we were getting 007 as president?

One Response to Last Thought on the Kill List

  1. Ken Ciszewski says:

    Allegedly, Richard Nixon’s White House had an “enemies list”, which listed US citizens who opposed Nixon’s policies, particularly the Vietnam War, as I understand it. I don’t think any of the “enemies” were killed, but there were suggestions that some of these people were being watched by the FBI because someone thought they were “subversives”.

    In my opinion, if there are foreign leaders or terrorists who openly vow to attack the United States, they shold be put on some kind of list and taken care of quickly.

    By that standard, Nikita Kruschev, the head of the USSR during the Cold Ward, would have been a candidate–he went before the world and told the US that “We will bury you.”
