Trump cancels Obama policy of reporting drone strike deaths

In the latest step toward rolling back Obama-era rules for targeted killings, President Donald Trump will no longer require U.S. intelligence officials to publicly disclose the numbers of people killed in drone strikes and other attacks on terrorist targets outside of war zones.

Trump ended the reporting requirement by signing an executive order Wednesday. The move had been expected since the administration last year failed to release an annual accounting of civilian and enemy casualties required under an order signed in 2016 by then-President Barack Obama.

Drones should be used in limited capacity and we should be reporting all deaths using them. It was abhorrent when obama was droning the fuck out of people it's worse now under trump.


Unless there is a declaration of war, we should NOT be targeting and attacking people and places with drones or troops.


Imagine if we focused on things like this instead of his penis size, hands size, weight, and silly minutia about the guy.
