Two journalists that were put on a presidential “Kill List” are attempting to sue the Trump administration. These guys apparently have some big cajones attempting a big move like that. They were put on the list by former President Obama and have yet to be taken off by the current POTUS Donald Trump.
That’s a shame.
According to Politico:
The journalists are former Al Jazeera Islamabad bureau chief Ahmad Zaidan and freelance journalist Bilal Kareem. The two allegedly filed the suit yesterday. It alleges the Obama administration placed them on a ‘kill list’ and President Trump has yet to remove them.
Politico states that the two also claim Trump “loosened some of the safeguards the previous administration placed on the program.” Kareem claims that since being placed on the list, he has “narrowly avoided being killed by five air strikes” in the past year.
The lawsuit states that both men deny association with Al Qaeda or the Taliban. They claim they were placed on the list as a result of flawed algorithms that flagged their travel, social media posts and communications.
According to The Hill, the lawsuit lists Trump, Defense Secretary James Mattis, CIA Director Mike Pompeo and Attorney General Jeff Sessions as defendants.
Obama himself is not listed as a defendant.
If they are this upset about it, then why are they not suing Obama? Oh, could it be that they are friends and you don’t sue your Muslim buddies? If they are on a list then there must be a reason for it, and it could be you are a terrorist.
Honestly, I am pretty sure no one will lose any sleep if one of those airstrikes actually did hit their target. At this point, I think Muslims have no leg to stand on and you can’t trust anything they say.
What do you think?
