The Drone Papers are written from leaked documents that  show President Obama, from his earliest days in office, was in charge of a global assassination program run out of the White House Situation Room, in which thousands of people were targeted for assassination in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia, under Obama’s drone-kill program. Most names in his mass murder program were immediately classified as terrorists and enemy combatants to cover up the magnitude of the Obama crimes.

Amnesty International has demanded a thorough Congressional investigation.  Over the weekend,  Lyndon LaRouche demanded  that Obama be immediately removed from office, either through impeachment or the invoking of the 25th Amendment—and then put on trial before a criminal court for mass murder.

Also over the weekend, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) issued charges against Obama with new evidence that the US willfully bombed their hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, and then sent in heavy vehicles to plow over the evidence.

The Drone Papers alone go beyond the “high crimes and misdemeanors” standard for impeachment.  Obama’s immediate removal from office is now up to the US Congress, and or the military to press impeachment charges and removal from office.  The question is, will they?

The need for the public to become aware of the Drone Papers is great, therefore I have made it easier for those who want to read these very important documents and learn what Obama Administration is guilty of.  Thank you to the team of reporters who have brought this information to the public.- Dianne Marshall

From the Intercept

“The articles in The Drone Papers were produced by a team of reporters and researchers from The Intercept that has spent months analyzing the documents. The series is intended to serve as a long-overdue public examination of the methods and outcomes of America’s assassination program. This campaign, carried out by two presidents through four presidential terms, has been shrouded in excessive secrecy. The public has a right to see these documents not only to engage in an informed debate about the future of U.S. wars, both overt and covert, but also to understand the circumstances under which the U.S. government arrogates to itself the right to sentence individuals to death without the established checks and balances of arrest, trial, and appeal.”

THE ASSASSINATION COMPLEX,  Secret military documents expose the inner workings of Obama’s drone wars.  By Jeremy Scahill  Oct. 15 2015, 6:57 a.m. “From his first days as commander in chief, the drone has been President Barack Obama’s weapon of choice, used by the military and the CIA to hunt down and kill the people his administration has deemed — through secretive processes, without indictment or trial — worthy of execution. There has been intense focus on the technology of remote killing, but that often serves as a surrogate for what should be a broader examination of the state’s power over life and death.”

A VISUAL GLOSSARY, Decoding the language of covert warfare  By Josh Begley Oct. 15 2015, 6:58 a.m. “This is a labyrinth with 12 entrances and no exit. It is built on a cache of documents provided to The Intercept by a source within the intelligence community.”

THE LETHAL BUREAUCRACY BEHIND OBAMA’S DRONE WAR, By Cora Currier Oct. 15 2015, 6:57 a.m.   “Secret military documents obtained by The Intercept offer rare documentary evidence of the process by which the Obama administration creates and acts on its kill list of terror suspects in Yemen and Somalia. The documents offer an unusual glimpse into the decision-making process behind the drone strikes and other operations of the largely covert war, outlining the selection and vetting of targets through the ranks of the military and the White House, culminating in the president’s approval of a 60-day window for lethal action.”

FIND FIX FINISH, By Jeremy Scahill  Oct. 15 2015, 7:00 a.m. ” Soon after he was elected president, Barack Obama was strongly urged by Michael Hayden, the outgoing CIA director, and his new top counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, to adopt the way of the scalpel — small footprint counterterrorism operations and drone strikes. In one briefing, Hayden bluntly told Obama that covert action was the only way to confront al Qaeda and other terrorist groups plotting attacks against the U.S.

THE TIP OF THE SPEAR in the Obama administration’s escalated wars in East Africa and the Arabian Peninsula was a special operations task force known as TF 48-4, according to secret documents provided to The Intercept. In response to a series of detailed questions, a Defense Department spokesperson said, “We don’t comment on the details of classified reports.”

MANHUNTING IN THE HINDU KUSH, Civilian casualties and strategic failures in America’s longest war. By Ryan Devereaux Oct. 15 2015, 6:57 a.m. “From 2011 to 2013, the most elite forces in the U.S. military, supported by the CIA and other elements of the intelligence community, set out to destroy the Taliban and al Qaeda forces that remained hidden among the soaring peaks and plunging valleys of the Hindu Kush, along Afghanistan’s northeastern border with Pakistan. Dubbed Operation Haymaker, the campaign has been described as a potential model for the future of American warfare: special operations units, partnered with embedded intelligence elements running a network of informants, pinpointing members of violent organizations, then drawing up plans to eliminate those targets from the battlefield, either by capturing or killing them.”

FIRING BLIND, Flawed Intelligence and the Limits of Drone Technology. By Cora Currier, Peter Maass  Oct. 15 2015, 6:58 a.m. “The Obama administration has portrayed drones as an effective and efficient weapon in the ongoing war with al Qaeda and other radical groups. Yet classified Pentagon documents obtained by The Intercept reveal that the U.S. military has faced “critical shortfalls” in the technology and intelligence it uses to find and kill suspected terrorists in Yemen and Somalia.”

THE LIFE AND DEATH OF OBJECTIVE PECKHAM, Stripped of British citizenship and killed by an American drone.  By Ryan Gallagher  Oct. 15 2015, 6:59 a.m.  “As he walked through the busy streets of London, Bilal el-Berjawi was glancing over his shoulder. Everywhere he went, he suspected he was being followed. Within a few years — 4,000 miles away in remote Somalia — he would be dead, killed by a secret U.S. drone strike.”

TARGET AFRICA, By Nick Turse  Oct. 15 2015, 6:59 a.m. “Morning dawns at length in Africa. The night has been long and dark. The opening day has a hopeful outlook and also an aspect of uncertainty. … For many years little colonies, trading-posts, and slave-marts have fringed its borders; but the vast interior has remained a blank.” — Historical Sketch of the Missions of the American Board in Africa, Samuel Bartlett (1880).”
