Sent this day 7/30/2012 An Open Letter Addressed to The President of the United States of America and to all of the currently seated members of Government and to all of the citizens of the USA to the people of the world and to all governments. Please Handle and deliver/share as you would a letter delivered by the USPS.
Mr. President and all currently seated members of Government and to all the citizens of the USA, to the governments and people of the world.
1st let me state that these letters I send to you I also send out on social media to all of the citizens of the USA to read as well - and I suppose it could be considered as open letters to the world also.
Anyway today's subject: War by Drone. Good policy? or War crime against civilians?
The government/military has found a way to make the killing of innocent human shields/bystanders acceptable to the large part of the public - "They were Collateral Damage" the terrorist targeted and killed was just unfortunately in their vicinity. It was not reported by the spotter/intelligence on the ground that innocents were in the vicinity ( plausible deny-ability ). Which does not even begin to address the correction of such things or suggest stop using a program because it is fatally flawed. Hell it does not even acknowledge the fact of a human operator of the drone with a camera/eyes of his own to surveil the situation.
If you would like to contact the President:
