So the US has assassinated a NZ citizen – what did Key know?

A non judicial assassination by the US on a NZ citizen raises questions.

Key made the idea that NZers were training with terrorists part of his farcical defence for the GCSB mass surveillance legislation. I say farcical because even if there were 100 NZers training as terrorists, that in no way shape or form justifies the mass surveillance of over 4 million others.

The fact Key used this information to politically justify the legislation raises serious questions. Did the GCSB help in the non judicial assassination of this NZer? Did the need to create an example drive the targeting of this NZer? What evidence of crimes had he committed and was a NZ representative for his rights present at that discussion?

In short, did Key as the GCSB spy boss who appointed his old school chum through a process that was doggy have a NZer targeted and killed for the political cover of passing mass surveillance?

Because there’s Games of Throne ruthlessness, and then there’s just out and out psychotic.

The pending Snowden GCSB dump might have prompted this release of information by the Government. Let’s hope when the files are released it sheds light on who knew what when.

  1. As a woman I would like nothing more than to see Al Queda and any other fundamentalist group that treat women as lesser beings wiped from the face of the earth, but then again I am no fan of a world that has every one of us under observation.
    Betwixt and between I am

  2. Meh. These guys have always wanted to be treated as soldiers in a war against the West – now that they got their wish, can’t we just be happy for them?

  3. Two conflicting issues here. One is the power the US has to sniff out and eliminate anyone who displeases it anywhere on earth. That is a bit frightening and to anyone who blurts out the stock argument that if you are not doing anything wrong you have nothing to fear – tell that to the hundreds of Afghans (including children) who have been killed by US drones because they were targeted by mistake. On the other hand ridding the world of a few more fanatical Al-Queda is not exactly a bad thing. But that throws up another question: can we really believe that they were Al-Queda or is that just the story we are given to cover another embarrassing mistake?

      And don’t forget the Holocaust (the Jews had “nothing to hide either”, right?). The fact that it has happened before, means that the probability of it happening is factually FINITE, which GUARANTEES it will happen again.

  4. @ JC . Read @ Nitrium . That’s what a thinker writes . Try and keep up will you ?
    Jonky DOES look like Joffery in the creepy image above . Did Campbell Live get that side of the Lizard as he prepared his dead flies with his Lizard whanau ?

  5. It’s a very sad day when our NZ PM gloats about a NZ citizen being killed by a US drone attack, because he was “suspected” of being involved with Al Qaeda.

    Endorsed assasination of a New Zealander…is that the sort of “democratic justice system” that we want to be associated with ?

    “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter” also comes to mind. Why is it that the Yanks can one minute support the mujahideen against the Russians, fight them as Al Qaeda when that’s finished, and then support their insurgency in Syria? Same applies to Iraq etc etc.

    Who made America the world’s judge, jury and executioner ?

  6. I like how the caption “Trust Me” with just a smiling John Key says multitudes to even an uninformed foreigner. There is some merit to the old traditional sayings in the east: ” Your character shows on your face”.

  7. The US did not assassinate anyone. A NZ citizen was killed during a drone strike on a cell with known terrorist links. When terrorists start to conduct trials for their targets prior to blowing them up, I’ll start to support trials for terrorists before retaliating.

    • Once a label is placed then beware the consequences.

      We don’t have the death penalty in NZ but john key seems to support it and without trial.
      That’s two gross transgression against NZ and its citizens..

      Three strikes Key and your out.
