Obama decides civilian casualties are so five minutes ago


On September 30, the Obama administration announced it would stop caring about civilians in Syria and Iraq who might be hurt by U.S. bombs.

Or rather, the drone strike standards that Obama instituted last year that were intended to diminish casualties would not apply in this new, beefed up campaign against the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) and its strongholds in those nations.

Snaps for honesty, Obama?

Or maybe, like his administration’s grand 2009 proclamation that the war on drugs was over, this casualness was always pure rhetoric.
