Presidential Kill List

There is some controversy in the news about info that was leaked supposedly from the White House. This info stated that the President had a "hit list" of known targets that he had signed off on that we have been targeting with Predator drone strikes.
I say "cool".

I want to know that our government is actively seeking out and eliminating those that would seek to do us harm. I remember some controversy by human right groups over the last administrations use of playing cards with high ranking Iraqi officials on them as a "hit list"..
"Cool" to that too. You don't win at football by tackling the guy without the ball, you choose your targets by who can score against you.

Taking out some goat herder turned Taliban because his Uncle was the local cell leader is one step to defeating the enemy. It's an entire different thing to take out the leadership that coordinates that small groups activities with other groups.

The big beef is that classified info was leaked to make BHO seem like a strong military leader in an election year. I get that and agree that classified info should never be leaked...hence the term classified. If this is the actual case I hope he burns in the polls for it. However, I am not going to condemn the President for targeting enemies of the nation that are known terrorists. I ask "what would Reagan do?" and come up with the same answer.

So to all the drone jocks sipping on Red Bull and Mountain Dew in some air conditioned hootch playing the ultimate video game miles away from the bad giys while ramming a Hellfire up their terrorists asses I say "GAME ON!"
