Rachel Maddow Links Bush's Torture Program With Obama's Assassination Program

This is normally something I'd share directly on Facebook/Google+, but there's no option to clip the segment without embedding it into a website. Posting it here to share elsewhere.

Here's Rachel Maddow's coverage of NBC news scoop: they've uncovered a white paper detailing what the Obama administration believes is the legal case for assassinating any American, any where, without so much as charging them with a crime. (Sorry for the commercial at the start of the video, I can't cut that out :-/ )

I received the following comment from an anonymous author:

"Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something
enlightening to read?"

The above was also paired with a URL to a webpage, and I wasn't confident that the page didn't contain malware, so I deleted the comment, and just reposted the text, sans the URL.

My apologies if there was nothing wrong with the link. In regards to the comment, as I said in the post, I was using it to link to the video with an edited start/end time, so I could share it on my various social networks. MSNBC's website doesn't allow direct sharing of videos with modified start and end times, unfortunately.

That said, I certainly want to write some more substantial posts. But like most, failing, aspiring bloggers, I haven't found the disciple to make the time to do so :)
