An Obama Credo

Leave it to a black religious leader to recognize the truth when he see's it - Specially from someone of his own kind. This is on Democracy Now Headlines this morning.
Desmond Tutu Blasts Idea of Special Court to Review Targeting of U.S. Citizens, Not Others 
U.S. lawmakers have also floated the idea of creating a special court to review strikes on U.S. citizens. South African Nobel Peace Prize laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu weighed in on that plan in a letter to The New York Times. He wrote: "Do the United States and its people really want to tell those of us who live in the rest of the world that our lives are not of the same value as yours? That President Obama can sign off on a decision to kill us with less worry about judicial scrutiny than if the target is an American? Would your Supreme Court really want to tell humankind that we, like the slave Dred Scott in the 19th century, are not as human as you are? I cannot believe it."
Finally, after 35 years, someone has the backbone to speak the truth about a certain class of Americans. The fact is, that is exactly what they are saying. That is exactly the way they are acting. It is what America is doing that speaks to the truth. So, lets see what happens when the whole world comes to grips with that reality. Israel might take a lesson, but then they set the precedent.
