So Much for Habeas Corpus... FACIST TOTALITARIANISM WINS AGAIN

The Washington Post on "A future for drones: Automated killing" by Peter Finn
 http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/national-security/a-future-for-drones-automated-killing/2011/09/15/gIQAVy9mgK_story.html?wpisrc=nl_headlines

"autonomous robotics could presage the future of the American way of war: a day when drones hunt, identify and kill the enemy based on calculations made by software, not decisions made by humans. Imagine aerial “Terminators,” minus beefcake and time travel..."

"The demonstration laid the groundwork for scientific advances that would allow drones to search for a human target and then make an identification based on facial-recognition or other software. Once a match was made, a drone could launch a missile to kill the target.”

Majia Here: This scenario is fundamentally a violation of the principle of habeas corpus and is counter to democracy.

It is a totalitarian, fascist approach that makes a mockery of justice.
