When I saw Bob’s post about Christopher Dorner and read his manifesto, I had this sudden sense of data vu — and then it hit me. Dorner copied his explanation from the one Obama made secretly just a few weeks ago, explaining his drone program!
Here’s the President’s original, eerily similar:
I know most of you who personally know me are in disbelief to hear from media reports that I am suspected of committing such horrendous murders and have taken drastic and shocking actions in the last couple of years. You are saying to yourself that this is completely out of character of the man you knew who always wore a smile wherever he was seen.
I know I will be vilified by the Republicans and the media. Unfortunately, this is a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur in the war on terrorism. Al Qaeda has not changed since 9/11. It has gotten worse. We never should have slacked off in Afghanistan, or been side-tracked into Iraq. The only thing that has evolved from those decisions is the people who attacked us have been promoted and rewarded”¦.
