Obama's Disposition Matrix
Obama appoints himself judge, jury and executioner.

Call it elevating Murder, Inc. to a higher level. A Washington Post Special Report discussed America's permanent war agenda.
It includes targeted killings, Obama's secret kill list, global drone wars, and White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan's new rules for war playbook.
Established in 2003, Washington's National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) provides terrorist related information for America's intelligence community. Brennan initially ran the agency. It devised Washington's so-called "disposition matrix."
If America had a motto it would be war is good, the more wars the better. How else can generals add stars and profiteers cash in big?
Human lives don't matter. Inviolable rule of law principles are trashed. Wealth, power and dominance alone matter. Imagine national policy wanting to destroy humanity to control it.
Democrat Obama has that in mind and more. Imagine what Romney's planning. Think about it November 6. Voting either major party ticket assures permanent wars, destroying social America, and cracking down hard on resisters.
On October 23, the Washington Post headlined "Plan for hunting terrorists signals US intends to keep adding names to kill lists," saying:
Information came from "dozens of current and former national security officials, intelligence analysts and others"." Evolving US counterintelligence policies are examined. Two follow-up articles are planned.
US special forces death squads operate in 120 or more countries. CIA agents kill globally. US citizens may be targeted at home or abroad. No one anywhere is safe.
Summary judgment means rule of law principles don't apply. Last spring, Obama appointed himself judge, jury and executioner. Extrajudicial authority is official administration policy. Diktats decide who lives or dies.
Anyone can be targeted anywhere in the world for any reason or none at all. Obama usurped the power of life and death. He's got final kill list authority.
Policy prioritizes killing by drones, death squads, or other means. Only eliminating America's enemies matter. Whether real or imagined makes no difference.
Targeted victims are people who want to live free from America's imperium. Washington calls them terrorists. Names go on kill lists.
