The New York Post, relying on anonymous “law-enforcement sources,” says that accused the accused Time Square attacker Faisal Shahzad was an “eyewitness” to the unmanned “onslaught throughout the eight months he spent in Pakistan beginning last summer.” And that he tried to bomb Times Square as payback for American drone attacks in Pakistan.
In a video made prior to the attack, the Pakistani Taliban leader Qari Hussain Mehsud said “the attack is a revenge” for “the recent rain of drone attacks,” and for the slaying of extremist leaders in Iraq and Pakistan.
President Obama has taken the unilateral Bush pre-emptive strategy to new levels of alienated remove. U.S. military personal can now control unmanned drones remotely in front of screens that imitate video games with life like accuracy.
Life imitating art.
