Time for a stray “drone” to do its deed. Problem is, would the usurper in chief have the gonads to order it done?
So who would have thunk that anybody would do this? and so quickly? you would sorta expect someone that have spent years as a prisoner of war would spend some time with family and friends before heading out on another assignment of war?
a little sarcasm here
Fox is reporting this morning that while we were sleeping, OBAMA ordered another release of FIVE TERRORIST detainees. Looks like perfect timing.
