This iReport is part of an assignment:
Public deserves to know about drone strikes
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
The American people deserve to know who is being targeted by the U.S. .
Lately, the president has made the matter confidential and limits details to specific intelligence officials.
All of congress is not informed and certainly not the American public, the very ones who elected the president.
I find it troubling that decisions are made without the public’s awareness.
Now, I realize that certain intelligence matters are kept secret.
But when tax payer dollars are funding the killing of un-named Americans suspected of terror, the government needs to explain.
Whatever happened to trying enemies for war crimes and treason?
Is the solution merely using un-manned drones that have been known to kill hundreds if not thousands of innocent civilians?
How is this for international relations?
President Obama needs to realize that he is elected by the people and for the people.
If he holds back on national security matters, what comes next?
