Don’t be fooled, giving these places “to the states” is just a cover for opening them up to development of one kind or another.
Mark Fiore: I apologize for politicizing a mass shooting tragedy before the blood has even dried, but sadly, the blood never dries. We now have at least one mass shooting incident every day in the United States
and because you’ve shown good will to the United States in the years since we invaded and occupied your country, slaughtered more than 3 million of your people…

Now that Pope Francis made the wonderful symbolic gesture of flying twelve Syrian refugees to Rome on his plane, let’s take a look at what it’s like for Muslims flying on planes in the United States.

Truthdig: Award-winning animator Mark Fiore imagines what media coverage of the drone program would look like if the killing machines weren’t so “techno-cool.” Watch the enlightening clip and read Fiore’s thoughts on the subject below.

Fiore: Six times a week or so, I pass by the pier where Kathryn Steinle was killed. Never did I think that beautiful spot would become such fertile ground for campaign demagoguery.

Fiore: Remember a couple years ago, when Obama said we’d shape up his drone program and achieve “near certainty” that civilians wouldn’t be killed and signature strikes would basically end? Turns out that’s not quite true. There were some pretty huge asterisks that were attached to his proclamation.
