The Daily Show looks at how the US government’s war on language increases along with its desire to break laws and violate the constitution. The latest trial balloon being floated is about how the Obama administration is once again ‘agonizing’ (translation: trying to find the best way to justify to the public) about its desire to summarily kill yet another American.
Oddly enough, these clips act as if this planned extra-judicial murder of an American is a new thing. Have they already forgotten about what was done to four Americans earlier, Anwar al Awlaki, his 16-year old son, and two others?
