Joint Special Operations Command (JSoc): Obama’s secret assassinsThe president has a clandestine network targeting a ‘kill list’ justified by secret laws. How is that different than a death squad?Naomi Wolf guardian.co.uk, Sunday 3 February 2013 Read complete Naomi Wolf article.

Excerpts from her article (with my added emphasis);

[…]The film Dirty Wars, which premiered at Sundance, can be viewed, as Amy Goodman sees it here, as an important narrative of excesses in the global “war on terror”. It is also a record of something scary for those of us at home – and uncovers the biggest story, I would say, in our nation’s contemporary history.[…] […]I have often wondered, since I first wrote about America’s slide toward fascism linked here, what was driving it.

I saw the symptoms but not the cause. Scahill’s and Rowley’s brave, transformational film reveals the prime movers at work. The US executive now has a network of secret laws, secret budgets, secret kill lists, and a well-funded, globally deployed army of secret teams of assassins. That is precisely the driving force working behind what we can see. Is fascism really too strong a word to describe it?[…]

No Naomi Wolf, I don’t think that is too strong. I think rather that it may be too weak a term to call it! The strongest words seem inadequate to this extreme historical usurpation by rouge elements in the United States of American government of ALL the powers laid out in separate branches of government through the US Constitution. 

Thank you, Naomi Wolf, for coming out with this and keep on speaking with courage, fear not these rouge elements, if we do not let them they cannot win. Quite acquiescence never saved anyone.
