R.I.P. Michael Hastings

Michael Hastings on President Obama's drone speech on May 23 and his administration's counter-terrorism policy:
"Look, the two key things that I took away from that speech is that Obama has enshrined the two most radical principles of the Bush doctrine. The first is, oh, he got rid of, sort of got rid of torture and sort of got rid of extraordinary rendition but enshrines targeted assassination. At the same time, he doesn't apologize for, he won't apologize for the scandal in Benghazi, he won't apologize for the, really the IRS is a few bad apples, and he says, “No, the AP and spying on journalists is okay.” So he enshrines killing people and spying on journalists as the two major tenets of his national security state. I think this is outrageous." (Source of transcript. Listen from 5:45 - 7:20 in the video below).
