Killing children in other nations

OlympiaFebruary 7, 2013 

President Barack Obama issued 23 executive orders allegedly to prevent another tragedy like Sandy Hook Elementary school. If his compassion is genuine, he could with a single order save many more children.

According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, during the past seven years American drones have killed as many as 214 children in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. Not all of these children were killed while Obama was in office, but during his administration the drone strike program has increased.

On Obama’s orders we are killing children in other countries; thus, his claims to compassion ring false and reveal that he is turning the Sandy Hook tragedy to his political advantage to further erode our constitutional rights.
