It could be that the US is too far down the police state road to turn back, as it may be with global warming. But the first step to fixing and then changing something for the better is to be aware of, to diagnose the full extent and the etiology of the problem. Realizing that killing Americans and foreigners has been US policy and presidential policy for years, probably scores of years, is a beginning. Maybe I'm naive and it's just me that figured this out. Or maybe this has been taken for granted. It's time for that to change. It's time to start systematically taking away powers that Presidents and security agencies have grabbed. 

Do you think Obama was the first to order assassinations?

How far back to you think this policy has gone? Twenty years? Two thousand years?
