In yet another policy move proving that Trump and his administration are utter LYING ENEMIES OF LIBERTY, he has overturned an Obama order forcing the government to report casualties of U.S. drone attacks.

This also means not having to report the large percentage of INNOCENT people killed by CIA-operated drones.

Obama did plenty of things wrong (like bombing Libya), but this was one thing he did right.

But leave it to the WAR-LOVING Republican Party (including Nazis like John Bolton) to reverse this policy.

American citizens (who PAY for the drone bombs they drop) have every right to know how our money is being spent - especially when it concerns killing people.

The CIA doesn't have to answer to Congress (as do all military branches) regarding policies of war, aggression, intervention and conflict on foreign soil - and probably on DOMESTIC soil for all we know.

So much for freedom of the press.

Is outrageous.  This will surly be used to escalate attacks tenfold and cause more hatred towards America, encourage terrorism, and ramp up endless, illegal wars. wtf are they thinking? Nothing good will come of this. For all the innocent civillians killed you can be sure thousands will want revenge, making it unsafe for Americans World Wide.  Im in a unique position where I quit working almost two years ago because I dont want to help pay for this shit. No more 600 dollars every month in Federal Income Taxes from me...I will not go back to work until these unconstitutional wars end. From the looks of it,  I just might be retired from here on out at 52..

...laid off from my airline job of over 30 years.

So I put this same message (on what was then the Daily-Paul site) saying even though it was tough being unemployed, for a while at least I was no longer funding wars, occupations and aggession in the Middle East and Africa from my dirty government.

I did odd jobs for a couple of years - not making enough to have to even pay federal income taxes - but I did relish not having my money going for this evil.

I got called back evenually so here I am funding it again trough IRS THEFT of the fruits of my labors.

But I sure as hell hate doing it and I applaud anyone like yourself who can stop giving them money for killing.

Unfortunatley as much as some of hate having to fund it, it makes us all equally guilty of the atrocities our representatives commit.
