Quote Of The Day

From Glenn Greenwald:

Via BuzzFeed and Spencer Ackerman, here is the logo for the U.S. Navy’s executive offices for its drone planes:

Why do they hate us?

Extremism Normalized

As weapons program symbols go at the DoD, this isn't any more morbid or aggressive than most. Still, I'd have to think that, at least for the recipients of our UAV strikes, this would be in poor taste. These aircraft are so small and stealthy that the people in the area may not know they are under attack until they hear an explosion. Combine that with our propensity for using them in countries with whom we're not at war, and I think Greenwald's rhetorical question is a good one.
