Obama: “Turns out I’m really good at killing people” – New Book “Double Down” Claims from the “Game Change” guys.
President Barack Obama said to his aides that he’s ‘really good at killing people,’ according to claims in a new book about the 2012 presidential campaign. Obama’s advisers were supposedly talking about his “strengths” in a meeting one day and he made a joke! Oh no, let’s all freak out. Can’t take a joke?
The revelation comes at a time when Obama, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, has faced increasing criticism for his use of drones to target insurgents and terrorist suspects, particularly in Pakistan and Yemen.
The London-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism estimates that Obama has authorized 326 drone strikes. Since 2004, CIA unmanned aerial vehicles have killed 2,500 to 3,600 people – including up to 950 civilians.
