I had the pleasure of watching the documentary, "Dirty Wars," by Jeremy Scahill. The film, in my view, affirms the conclusion that if the U.S. continues to fight this "war on terrorism" with its own acts of terrorism, then the security of the American public will remained threatened. As Scahill points out in the documentary, the Obama administration has generated a "targeted kill list" that grew from a few names to hundreds of names and now thousands of names. The more people killed the more people who will be willing to spare their lives for revenge. There is a vicious cycle that even if the "war on terror" ends today, the effects of the U.S. government's violent acts will be felt for a long time.
