International – Ta-Nehisi Coates – The Kill List – The Atlantic

31 May

The US Presidency is governed by a logic that swallows Presidents and spits them out. We are becoming the rogue nation we fear in other states.

The Obama administration considers any military-age male in the vicinity of a bombing to  be a combatant. That is an amazing standard that shares an ugly synergy with the sort of broad-swath logic that we see employed in Stop and Frisk,  with NYPD national spy network, with the killer of Trayvon Martin.

Policy is informed by the morality of a country. I think the repercussions of this unending era of death by silver bird will be profound.
