There wasn’t really any initial discussion regarding drone strikes or our moving into any country we wanted in the first place.

Right. So, recently there were two hearings on the kill program, including one that had a young Yemeni guy testify, whose family’s village was bombed six days before he testified before the Senate. I think we’re at the beginning of a conversation right now, but we need more of it. And we need people that are actually credible, serious lawmakers to take this on as an issue and demand answers.

How do you get on a kill list? How do you get off a kill list? How do you surrender when you haven’t been charged with a crime? How do you surrender to a drone? These are questions that I think too few Democrats are asking. Ron Wyden of Oregon is one of the few that I think is doing good work on this and trying to push for answers. But I think we need more people like that, who come from the base of the president’s own party, to ask the president questions.

Your principles are defined when the people you like are in power far more than when the people you despise are in power. Because then you have to actually debate the principle of it—not just the personality.

Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in Texas,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website http://bravespellcaster.yolasite.com,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back. So thanks to Dr Brave for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com} , Thanks.
