2nd Drone Survey! Answer 5 Questions! January 27, 2013

by Cris Ericson Monday, Jan. 28, 2013 at 10:25 AM

President Barack Obama is Commander in Chief of the United States Military. The Central Intelligence Agency is NOT part of the United States Military; but, the C.I.A. is ordering the deployment of most of the missile strikes from un-manned computer controlled Drones. Therefore, under whose authority are these strikes taking place? If the United Nations investigation, which is currently going on, proves that the U.S.A. committed "war crimes", then does President Obama avoid responsibility for authorization of these drone strikes under Separation of Powers clause in the U.S. Constitution?

Here are 5 new questions about un-manned computer

controlled Drone Strikes deploying missiles

which kill people at President Obama's direction

as Commander in Chief!

But, wait a minute!

Aren't most of the missile strikes ordered by the C.I.A.?

If the C.I.A. is not part of the United States Military,

then the Commander in Chief authorization

does not hold water.

January 26, 2013 The Controversy rages on

about un-manned computer controlled Drone strikes

killing more children and innocent civilians

than terrorists worldwide.

New questions are constantly surfacing

about the necessity and legality of Drone Strikes.

(1) If President Barack Obama is Commander in

Chief of the United States Military,


it is the Central Intelligence Agency that is

issuing orders for most of the Drones strikes

deploying missiles and killing people,


can President Barack Obama be charged with

War Crimes by the United Nations?

Isn't it true that the C.I.A. is NOT part of the

United States Military? Is the C.I.A

President Barack Obama's private army?

Examples of questions about war crimes:


Aug 2, 2012 The legal dilemma over drone strikes:

justified killings or war crimes?

Military lawyers can be intimately involved in

life-or-death decisions on the use of drone...

UN experts have called on the US to justify its targeted killings.

(1b) UN to probe legality of Obama's drone war -

Oct 30, 2012 UN special rapporteur Ben Emmerson thinks otherwise. ...

that some US drone strikes in Pakistan may constitute war crimes.

In a recent Harvard speech,

Emmerson said that he will be launching an investigation unit

within the UN Human ...

US drone strikes were initiated by George W. Bush and greatly ...


United Nations will investigate to determine if drone strikes

qualify for war crimes.

By Catholic Online (NEWS CONSORTIUM);

1/25/2013; Catholic Online


Chuck Hagel to be Defense Secretary and John Brennan to be CIA Director, after

... A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit said that ...

appointment power would eviscerate the Constitution's separation of powers," ...

(2) What is the difference in the surveillance

capacity of global orbital satellites that take

detailed photographs of every inch of Earth,

and Drones? Can the global orbital satellites

see through cloud cover? We know that

NASA, NOAA and Google provide us with

global orbital satellite photos all the time

to see earth and weather conditions and

solar flares, etc. Is the only reason for

Drones that they can NOT see through

tornadoes, hurricanes, etc.?

Is a Drone just "seeing" from the satellite

images fed to it, and not actually taking

photos itself?

(2a) For example: January 26, 2013 News -

Times of India Satellite images reveal North Korea

ready for nuclear test

Fox News

WASHINGTON - North Korea could be almost ready to

carry out its threat to conduct a nuclear test,

a U.S. research institute said,

pointing to recent satellite photos.

(2b) Living Under Drones:

Death, Injury and Trauma to Civilians from US ...

The Global Justice Clinic (NYU Clinic) at NYU School of Law

... The best currently available public

aggregate data on drone strikes are

..... on the ground and the arrival

of the video image via satellite to the drone pilot.

(2c) Sep 24, 2012 The air force men who fly drones

in Afghanistan by remote control ...

But drone strikes have also led to mass protests in Pakistan and ...

the system is wholly dependent on satellite links working.

(3) President Barack Obama "nominates" the

head of the C.I.A. and then the United States Senate

"confirms" the appointment. Who is the "boss"

of the head of the C.I.A. while he or she is in office?

If the United Nations finds that the Drone Strikes

that the C.I.A. ordered to be deployed in foreign

countries violated the sovereignty of the foreign

countries and were "war crimes" for killing

foreign citizens with missile strikes against

them and their chidren and innocent civilians,

despite the fact that the missiles were supposedly

aimed at "terrorists", then is the head of the C.I.A.

responsible or are the people (President Barack

Obama and the members of the United States Senate

on the nominating committee) responsible for

committing "war crimes"? Who precisely will

be charged with "war crimes"?

(3a) For example, in the news January 7, 2013:

John Brennan chosen by Barack Obama as new CIA head -


Jan 7, 2013

The mastermind of Barack Obama's secret drone war

was chosen on Monday to lead the CIA...

(3b) The Militant January 26, 2013

White House drafts drone killing rules,

strikes in Pakistan not included.

The Barack Obama administration is moving to appease liberal

critics of Washington's aerial drone assassination program

with a new written set of guidelines ...

(3c) January 25, 2013 Business Insider

UNITED NATIONS: That's It, We're Investigating Drone Killings

The U.N. has launched an investigation into

U.S., British, and Israeli airstrikes

that allegedly resulted in the

deaths of hundreds of civilians in Pakistan alone.

(4) Most Americans believe we have the right and

the duty to carry weapons and keep them in our

homes to protect our property and our families

and our country from crime, war and terrorist

attacks. How can we ask President Barack Obama

and the C.I.A. to give up the weapons ordered to

be deployed so often by the Central Intelligence

Agency, the un-manned computer controlled

Drones which deploy missiles? Does the C.I.A.

have the right to bear arms? Is the C.I.A. a

corporation, which, under the U.S. Supreme

Court decisions, is a "person"? Is the

United State of America a "corporation"

and therefore a "person"?

Is an un-manned computer controlled Drone

which deploys missiles correctly defined as an

"assault weapon"?

(4a) For example: In the News January 26, 2013 -

ABC News Thousands march in DC for gun control

CBS News

WASHINGTON Thousands of people, many holding signs

with names of gun violence victims

and messages such as "Ban Assault Weapons Now,"

gathered in front of the Capitol on Saturday

for a March on Washington for Gun Control.

(5) Ending Nuclear Weapons Proliferation is very important to the

survival of people on planet Earth. Is the United States of

America creating a NEW arms race because of the C.I.A.'s use

of un-manned drone strikes deploying missiles to

target "terrorists"?

(5a) For example: Asian Defense

China Shipbuilding Industry Corp. has developed a new manned

submersible capable of deep dives.

Indonesia To Build Unmanned Drone Squadron In 2013.

Satellite Images Show North Korea...

Extra credit Drone Survey question:

Will you please help my friend,

75 year old grandmother, Rosemarie Jackowski,

of Bennington, Vermont by signing her online

White House petition to End DRONE strikes

killing more children and innocent civilians

than terrorists?

There are only a few days left allowed for this

petition. If she doesn't get enough signatures

it expires January 31. She started on Jan. 1, 2013.

Her petition has 122 signatures which means

that it need 28 more signatures to be

"publicly searchable" on the "Open Petitions"

section of the White House "We the People"


If we can help Rosemarie get just

28 more signatures, then even if she only

has one day left, on the day her petition goes

"public" (rather than only being available

at this hidden White House Sub- Basement link)

then in just one day she could get the

25,000 signatures to qualify for an

Official White House Reponse

BECAUSE a Million people a day

visit the White House and

there are so many news stories

right now about the United Nations

investigating the USA for killing kids with

drone strikes!

Click the link and register an e-mail with

the White House and then when you receive

the confirmation email, go back and click

this link, it is case sensitive,

and sign the petition.

Thank you!
