I can’t believe I’m saying this: Thank you Ed Schultz

There is little I can agree with MSNBC commentator Ed Schultz on; however, during MSNBC’s post-inauguration speech coverage today, the progressive said what I was waiting for many on the anti-war left to say– Just how many innocent people are we killing President Obama’s ultra aggressive drone policy?

While Chris Matthews gushed all over the President’s speech describing it as “Lincoln-esque” among other adjectives, Mr. Schultz took a jab at this very critical issue.

When analyzing the foreign policy parts of the Obama speech, Schultz said, “We’re also entering into a new age of some big decisions in foreign policy, because this country right now is starting to get some adversaries around the world because of our drone policy. That was not the situation four years ago.”

He went on to say, “Our foreign policy is going to be judged on just how aggressive we get with that, and there’s a growing concern in the community across the country about the drone attacks. Just how many innocent people are we killing? And there’s been concerted conversation about that we have to reel this in, and President Obama, I think, is going to hear a great deal about that when it comes to foreign policy in the coming months. Just how aggressive are we going to get?”

This is a question we are not hearing from the neoconservatives at FOX and the vast majority of progressives at MSNBC.

Thanks, Ed.

Yes, just how many innocent people are we killing?
