Media Blackout As Obama Appoints First Ever Assassination Czar

Corporate news blackout as Obama appoints John Brennan as the sole person in charge of designating people to be assassinated.

John Brennan, Obama’s chief counterterrorism advisor was a name that you did not see on the Mainstream media today as they continue to run stories that serve to distract the masses from stories that matter.

Most recently he publicly spoke about the drone program calling it moral and ethical and just.

According to reports from the Associated Press, John Brennan has now seized the lead in choosing who will be targeted for drone attacks and raids after Obama delegated him as the sole authority to designate people for assassination under the United States top-secret assassination program.

Yes, if it such a secret program then why is the Associated Press running a story on it? Because it is only a “top-secret” matter of National Insecurity when the public and organizations such as the ACLU request more details on it than is revealed int the propagandized reports the public is fed through the corporate media.

While this story deserves to have been put before the eyeballs of every U.S. citizens it was merely a side note ran by the Associate Press that didn’t make corporate news headlines anywhere.

According to the AP, under the new plan, Brennan’s staff compiles the potential target list and runs the names past agencies such as the State Department at a weekly White House meeting.

At the same time ACLU lawsuits and requests for information about the decision-making process behind the government’s assassination program repeatedly get denied with the government claiming the programs are so top-secret that they can neither confirm nor deny the programs even exist.

Well, Thoth II, a nice drone strike would save the mind wracking decision of "what to wear" for your indefinite detention! : 

U.S. asks judge to undo ruling against military detention law

May 26, 2012 by legitgov

It's the Obusha Friday-Evening-Entering-A-Holiday-Weekend Civil Liberties Bad News Dump: U.S. asks judge to undo ruling against military detention law 25 May 2012 Federal prosecutors on Friday urged a judge to lift her order barring enforcement of part of a new law that permits indefinite military detention [of US citizens]. Manhattan federal court Judge Katherine Forrest this month ruled in favor of activists and reporters who said they feared being detained under a section of the law, signed by President Barack Obama in December. The judge's preliminary injunction bars the government from enforcing section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act's "Homeland Battlefield" provisions. The section authorizes indefinite military detention for those deemed to have "substantially supported" al Qaeda [al-CIAduh], the Taliban or "associated forces."
