My faith in the youth of today has just been magnified 10 fold with this letter.


This student has done more than most in addressing his concerns with the terrorist actions of the Obama administration with regards to the drone program that will no doubt be Obama's legacy. A legacy of control, terror, fear...

Why does it take a student to make it so clear as to what many are trying to voice but can never get past the point of "We need to stand" "We need to fight" "Let's all write letters" and the rest of the posturing, chest thumping keyboard warriors?

This is a partial of the letter and the video contains the rest.


President Obama,

It is my understanding, throughout the duration of your Presidency, that you have persistently authorized drone strikes on innocent Middle Eastern civilians who were supposedly working for, or somehow affiliated with Al-Qaeda. As a further matter, you have gone so far as to publicly announce – in accordance to your Administration’s white paper concerning the legalities and justifications concerning your drone policy, which was leaked to NBC – that you have the authority to drone bomb any American citizen.

The Hill wrote, “In the document, the Justice Department concludes that a lethal strike against a senior operational leader of al Qaeda — or an affiliated terrorist group — can occur if a three-part test is met: that a high-level American intelligence official has determined the individual poses an imminent threat, that capture is infeasible, and that the strike is conducted according to the laws of war governing use of force.”

The key phrase here is:

“Or an affiliated terrorist group.”

This is chilling. It is jaw-dropping, rather. Why? It’s simple. According to multiple documents – such as the FBI’s “Project Megiddo” document from the late 1990’s and the FBI’s and BJA’s “Communities Against Terrorism” documents – we, the American people, are considered “an affiliated terrorist group.”

It is also interesting to note the hypocrisy which you have entangled yourself in. You have made it clear, upon the reauthorization of the NDAA with Sections 1021 and 1022 on December 31, 2011, with this leaked white paper concerning drone bombings, and with your countless public appearances regarding terrorism, that anyone who is affiliated – or somehow deemed a terrorist – shall be denied their Constitutional rights. However, have you ever noticed the glowing hypocrisy here? Your administration has openly aided the Al-Qaeda rebels in Syria (Reuters, Daily Mail, etc.) firearms.

Aren’t these the very people you’re against? Aren’t these the very people by which you have used to justify the killings of countless innocent civilians?

On behalf of the large group of concerned American citizens and from a concerned American high school student,

Alec Scheer,

Founder of We Are 1776

Video of the letter:


I have a new hero!

Peace

Its a good letter but why is he so special for writing a letter that wont even get read by the president...

Us keyboard warriors.. What you think he wrote the letter on a typewriter?

You need to get out more if he is your hero there are many more people that are doing much more to better things then writing letters to people who don't read them or care about what you have to say to him..

If the President gave a crap about the american peoples opinion of him then he wouldn't do anything that he has and is doing. The facts of what he has done his entire presidency and is doing just goes to show you he could care less what any of us think.

I agree with everything that young man wrote. Good to see the youth being so politically active and informed.

His letter just got read by you, me, and will be read by many more before the morning. He also doesn't apologize for anything but lays it on the line with an insight that most adults don't have at this time.

That's why it's now here on ATS.

Enjoy!

The POTUS doesn't need to read the letter. The American people need to read it and wake up. I just read it and was inspired. Hopefully you were too.

Damn! I'm not even American and it inspired the hell out of me!


We need more like this. Not only in the US but in every corner of the World where dictators rule with fear and murder towards their citizens.

Peace

Dear Alec Scheer,

As a puppet of the elite banking cartel, I have a clear agenda which I am expected to execute. Key phrase here: "Execute". As a communist, having had communist friends and influences throughout my entire adult life, I do not concern myself with the rule of law as it is written. I choose to write my own rules as I go, and killing whomever I please is one of the favorite rules that I have granted myself.

Thanks for your concern,

President Obama

Somehow I believe this is closer to the truth than many would want to acknowledge.

One important point that I can point out is, the administration is now using children to push there agenda through. When the youth of America speak, now is an important time to listen!

Put this guy up against Obama's baby warriors I guess. This is what it's coming to.

Perhaps the youth can take it to the next level? I hope so.

Peace

Whoa.

This kid makes me look like a huge idiot. Kudos


It's amazing, the kind of people my age I'm usually surrounded by, then I read this. These are the words of a high school kid? That's amazing.

Also, it's interesting that I, nor any of my friends or family, have heard about this, but we all manage to see the exploited kids standing next to Obama on the news, crying.

I've been following your posts and I will only say this once.

You have given me hope in the youth of today and I give my word that I will NOT treat you as a teenager with all the preconceived notions that go along with it.

You have earned my respect and admiration.


Peace

I would like to take this opportunity to second that sentiment. If my children could exhibit the presence of mind that this young man or lady has, I would not be able to contain my pride.
