Hypocrisy: MSNBC's Touré Does 180 on Drone Killings After Obama Exposé

Drones are everywhere, at least in the mainstream media.The Right Sphere came up with a stark bit of hypocrisy coming from one of the lesser lights of the cable news circuit. MSNBC’s resident race-baiter Touré on drone strikes back on December 20th, 2012, seven weeks ago:
Touré insisted that torture, and drone warfare, are not making America safer. Nor, he said, do those tactics provide defense officials with actionable intelligence. “It wrecks the soul of America,” Touré said.
Drone strikes aren’t making us safer. They wreck the soul of America.
“Wrecking the soul of America.” Pretty strong language, right?
Well, the Obama administration was recently exposed by NBC for claiming the right to kill American citizens without due process was “legal, ethical, and wise” and Touré has since fallen into the party line.
We’re at war with al Qaeda right now, and if you join al Qaeda, you lose the right to be an American. You lose the right to due process. You declare yourself an enemy of this nation, and you are committing treason. And I don’t see why we should expand American rights to people who want to kill Americans, who are working to kill Americans, who are committing treason. This is not criticizing the United States. This is going to war against the United States.
Who determines if a U.S. citizen is a member of al Qaeda or an “associated force”? Intelligence agencies? A federal judge? Nope, it’s President Obama himself, who the New York Times outed as having a secret “kill list.”
From drone strikes “wreck the soul of America” to drone-bombing traitors without due process in seven weeks. There’s a mainstream media commentator with a deep core of beliefs.
