Friday 15 March 2013 – ‘Where is the evidence my son was a terrorist?’
Mohamed Sakr was stripped of his British citizenship for alleged Islamist activity and killed in a drone strike. His parents tell Chris Woods they have yet to be shown any proof of his guilt.
You get extradited back to the US. Or you get killed abroad in a drone strike. Being stripped of your citizenship was merely a way of absolving your government of your murder. As a man or woman without a country, you don’t exist in the eyes of nation-states, and thus you can be murdered by any government and no other government will raise an eyebrow.
The United Nations has raised another challenge to Obama’s drone policy in Pakistan, saying that it continues to kill innocent civilians because operators have difficulty discerning civilians apart from terrorists.
For drone assassinations lacking a fair trial, America doesn’t even need to silently strip the citizenship of the so-called “tax cheats”, “snot pukes”, “traitors”, “unpatriotic”, “pieces of crap” people who want to live normal lives outside of US jurisdiction. These are all titles rewarded to individuals who choose not to be American citizens for whatever reason. Most of these, I collected from just one single article talking about Saverin. Did I remember to include the “terrorist” label? Notice that in all three articles, none of the accusations are supported with any evidence to justify their careless usage.
It appears that no proof of guilt is needed to justify the assassination of anyone given such a fancy title. They are, after all, “snot pukes”!
If it says anything at all, your once-government lies and says that you were a high profile terrorist.
You are now a confirmed kill.
