ObamaDrone: Politics From The Disposition Matrix

For those of you old enough to remember The Matrix...

America had two choices in November 2012:

Red Pill or Blue Pill
"This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes."
Tea Party Takes the Red Pill, but America took the Blue Pill

While the Tea Party and others took the red pill and have been fighting to save the country. A larger percentage of people choose the blue pill and continue to believe whatever they want to believe.

Now, America is facing a new threat. This threat is actually called a "Disposition Matrix." The Matrix uses robotic drones to kill terrorists like American citizen Anwar al-Awlaki. It also targets and kills non-terrorist civilians and targeted Anwar al-Awlaki's son in a separate drone strike. To be fair, we can't be sure that the son was the target of the drone strike and others give the Obama administration the benefit of the doubt.

"Three others, including Awlaki's teenage son and propagandist Samir Khan, have been killed in drone strikes, but none of them appears to have been the target of the strike; all were considered collateral damage." 
In our judgement the "Disposition Matrix" is killing American citizens for reasons including "because he is his father's son." Such reasoning does not reflect the Constitutional rights to a fair trial, so the precise targeting is not revealed.

This program is unamerican enough to warrant its own name... like ObamaCare.  We propose that the killing of Americans without due process be named...ObamaDrone.
