Is The Obama Drone Policy an Impeachable Offense? (an interview with Medea Benjamin)


 I spoke with activist,  journalist and co-founder of Code Pink, Medea Benjamin whose book Drone warfare, killing by remote control, is available at CodePink.org and I asked her about her recent experience leading a peace delegation to Pakistan.

Additionally, we spoke about the assassination of American citizen Anwar al-Aulaqi – the accused Al Quada terrorist and al-Aulaqi’s 16 year old son – also an American citizen- who was also killed by a drone attack two weeks after his father. Recently, Robert Gibbs, an Obama campaign spokesperson defended the assassination of the 16 year old American who had not been charged with a crime not by saying that the kid was a threat, or that killing him was an accident, but by saying that his late father should have been more responsible.

I asked Medea if the killing of Al-Aulaqui’s son was a targeted assassination, and if so, does rise to the level of an impeachable offense?
