NPR broke the story that a son of Osama bin Laden may have been killed in a late springtime U.S. airstrike in Pakistan. U.S. officials tell FOX News that Saad bin Laden, who is not considered a significant player in Al Qaeda leadership, was “collateral” damage in an airstrike in Pakistan and was not considered important enough to target on his own.
The Obama administration is carrying out a secret policy of targeted assassinations. They are going after al-Qaeda suspects. Was Congress thoroughly briefed on the details of this hit — time, date, plan of attack? — before the drones were deployed? This is an obvious violation of the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Geneva Conventions, the Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and the 2008 Democratic party platform.
We need hearings and a special prosecutor.
