In the USA, it is illegal to impose executions on people under 18, something that most Democrats would support, I suppose. Yet, their vaunted president, Barack Obama, has declared that a 17-year-old girl is to be gunned down if American spies can find her.

Somehow, I doubt that there will be a peep of protest about that at the Democratic National Convention this summer. And, to make things even more depressing, I’m sure that the Republicans will claim that Obama is “soft on terrorism” and is too “timid” to launch the U.S. Killing Machine in full force. So it has come to this: Washington, D.C., is the new home of Murder, Inc.
