Obama the Warrior in a New Kind of War

Hosted by  • 

Soon after President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, he began authorizing the killing of individuals deemed threatening to the United States. Now he presides over regular meetings that determine which terrorist suspects will live or die, along with others who may become "collateral damage." New drone technology allows precise targeting, but what about the laws of war, the crossing of international boundaries and basic morality? In this election year, we hear why Republicans and Democrats are calling Obama "Bush-Cheney on steroids."
