John Brennan, Assassination Czar

Between appearing on Democracy Now this morning and some other things, I’ll be out of pocket most of the day.

But I should say that I didn’t invent the moniker “Assassination Czar.” I’m not sure who did (though I’m happy to provide credit!), but here’s to hoping use of it embarrasses the Administration into reversing their plan to run the Yemen war out of the White House.

bmaz @ericghill @gideonstrumpet That would be administrative within PD, not within the purview of the GJ I would think.

bmaz @gideonstrumpet @JamilSmith If so, could have so stipulated in the plea, no? Why leave one count open?

bmaz @JamilSmith @gideonstrumpet That is not certain from my understanding; there is up to 5 yrs left on table at sentencing on one of the counts

bmaz @gideonstrumpet What's less than manslaughter? Assault? Reckless endangerment?

emptywheel @adambonin Pretty much Philly is the obvious answer and if you guys blow it you suck.

bmaz @McBlondeLand That would be about the first thing Sunny Hostin has ever said that is credible.

bmaz @armandodkos Yeah, but this one was cravenly designed to be a trial with an acquittal as the result.

bmaz @csoghoian @normative @Robyn_Greene @emptywheel @Krhawkins5 Your definition of "fluff" is much narrower than their definition of "relevance"
