ShareThisPresident Obama reportedly told his aides he’s ‘really good at killing people’ 03 Nov 2013 This will not go over well for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner. According to the new book "Double Down," in which journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann chronicle the 2012 presidential election, President Barack Obama told his aides that he’s "really good at killing people" while discussing drone strikes. Peter Hamby of The Washington Post reported the nugget in his review of the book. Under Obama U.S. drone operators began practicing "signature strikes," a tactic in which targets are chosen based on patterns of suspicious behaviour and the identities of those to be killed aren’t necessarily known. (The administration counts all "military-age males" in a strike zone as combatants.)
