Today on the Resistance Report, an interview with Kevin Gosztola of FireDokeLake.com.
Two recent stories that shed new light on how the Obama administration utilizes drones in the war on terror came to light yesterday. First, Glenn Greenwald and Jeremy Scahill, via their new venture First Look revealed that:
In a related story, the Associated Press reported on the "case of an American citizen and suspected member of al-Qaida who is allegedly planning attacks on U.S. targets overseas underscores the complexities of President Barack Obama's new stricter targeting guidelines for the use of deadly drones."
The AP was complying with a White House Request not to release the country where this American Citizen was located because this country, which the Los Angles Times later revealed to be Pakistan, was not friendly to US Military intervention and the administration claimed that publishing the name of the country could "interrupt ongoing counter terrorism operations."
