EXCLUSIVE: Cowardice Redefined, The New Face of American Serial Killers

“I saw men, women and children die during that time. I never thought I would kill that many people. In fact, I thought I couldn’t kill anyone at all.” - Former US drone operator Brandon Bryant

Predator Drone
theepochtimes.com

(SAN BLAS, Mexico) - A little after 10:00 p.m., and a serial killer is getting ready to make his move. He has watched and waited for this moment for some time.

He watches his victim get out of a cab and dig in his pockets for money. Two of his children run out to the porch to greet their daddy. The killer presses a button and watches as the victim, the taxi driver and the two children are vaporized. Other people in the house, the man's wife, parents and three other children are badly injured and burnt by the high explosive.

The house next door partially collapses, killing an elderly woman and injuring her grandson. But this is just the beginning.

Neighbors and emergency personnel arrive and begin trying to help the victims. There is chaos...children screaming, people wailing and the cries of the burnt and injured. Several people are trapped under rubble.

When enough people have gathered, the killer presses the button again. Fifteen seconds later, all those at the scene are vaporized or blown to shreds. The killer high-fives his partner. In two hours he will be off work! They are planning on driving in to Las Vegas, have some cocktails maybe pick up some girls.

Brandon Bryant, 27, from Missoula, Montana, spent six
years in the Air Force operating Predator drones from
inside a dark container. But, after following orders to
shoot and kill a child in Afghanistan, he knew he couldn't
keep doing what he was doing and quit the military.

On the other side of the world, at the crime scene, the misery, grief and suffering is just beginning. The gathering and grouping of body parts, the burials, the amputations and lifetime medical traumas, the traumatized children, the destroyed lives. But tonight in Vegas, it is party party party for this 22-year old serial killer from Creech Air Force Base in Nevada, some 7550 miles away from the carnage. The biggest threat he will face tonight is a hangover tomorrow.

He is a drone "pilot". He and his kind have redefined the words "coward", "terrorist", and "sociopath". He is the new face of American warfare. He is a government trained and equipped serial killer. But unlike Ted Bundy or John Gacy, he does not have to worry about getting caught. It is his job.

One thing that the drone terrorism/assassination program has revealed to the world is how racist we Americans are. American life is precious... when Americans die we expect the entire world to weep at our feet along with us. Three Americans die in a senseless act of violence and murder at the Boston Marathon, and the entire country grieves and the president makes heartfelt speeches. Where were all the speeches and expressions of grief when the US bombed the school in Chenagai, Afghanistan? Didn't hear about that senseless act of violence and murder? Of course not.

This is from the UK newspaper The Tribune.

    "It is one of the worst incidents of the entire drones campaign, yet one of the least reported.

    A CIA strike on a madrassa or religious school in 2006 killed up to 69 children, among 80 civilians.

    The attack was on a religious seminary in Chenegai, in Bajaur Agency.CIA drones attacked on October 30, flattening much of the school. Their target was reportedly the headmaster, a known militant. But dozens of children were also killed, the youngest aged seven."
    (see: http://tribune.com.pk/story/229844/the-day-69-children-died/)

Wow. So the CI next decides that the teacher of this school needs to be killed. They do not kill him on his way to school, or when he is alone. They wait until he is at the school full of children, THEN they send the missiles.

They PURPOSELY wait until they can kill dozens of children too. Could Satan himself top this act of pure evil? If there is a

Hell, there is a special place for the murdering, drug running, child killers known as the CIA. Hitler's SS were Cub Scouts in comparison.

When the CIA decided that they wanted to kill a 16-year old American kid named Abdulrahman Anwar al-Awlaki, they waited until he was in a Yemeni restaurant with two of his teenaged friends. A drone operator fired the missiles and not only the intended victim, but eight other people died.

This is from Wikipedia:

    "Abdulrahman Anwar al-Awlaki was a 16-year-old American citizen who was killed while eating dinner at an outdoor restaurant in an airstrike by an armed C.I.A. drone in Yemen on October 14, 2011. The attack also killed two of his teenaged friends and five other people in the restaurant, which was reduced to rubble. He had no connection to terrorism and was searching for his father Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed by an airstrike by an armed C.I.A. drone two weeks prior to the death of his son."

Dr. Mona Kazim Shah with a drone strike victim

By the way, Obama approved that strike, according to the New York Times. Tough guy. A real leader. Child killer.

Would that ever happen in the US?

Say if a non-government sanctioned serial killer like Jeffery Dahmler was in a Burger King, would the police or FBI blow up the entire restaurant and kill everyone else inside to get him ? If a really bad guy...robber, rapist, murderer was found to be in his house some night with his wife and four small children, would the police blow up the entire house and everyone in it to get the bad guy? Would the CIA bomb a school full of children in Colorado (where the 16 year old was from) to kill ONE teacher? No, because we value AMERICAN life.

Our damned military and the ghouls who give them their orders are rapidly changing for the worst, how we are perceived in the world. We are murderous, racist thugs, killers of children, bombers of weddings and funerals. The "logic" given for bombing weddings and funerals is that there might be someone attending that they want to take out. So, our Nobel Peace Prize winning president and the serial killers he employs just kill as many people as possible.

If they were at the wedding of someone who might be related to someone possibly involved with trying to get the foreign invaders out of their country, well they were probably "terrorists", and the children would probably grow up to be terrorists, so kill em all.

This is racism at it's most extreme. We can kill them like mice because they are not like us. We lie, invade, destroy, kill and then we call THEM "savages". WE are the most brutal, arrogant and sociopath society this earth has ever seen. We criticize the Jews for calling themselves the Chosen Ones, yet we act as if we are the only people on the planet that matter.

"Well", you might be thinking, "this rant does not apply to me. I am not in the military, I am not an 'aviation warfare specialist' as the joystick/drone operators in their 'flight suits' are called. I don't like this crap any more than the author of this piece...."

My question then would be "What are you doing about it?"

Have you called your congressmen and senators and told them that you will only support those politicians who sincerely and repeatedly call for an end to the drone murder program?

About the only thing I feel that I can do about it at this time is try to raise awareness. Anyone can do that in their everyday conversations with others. Letters to the editor are good. Do something or know that by your silence you are aiding and abetting evil in it's purest form.

Even a "Drones are Evil" bumper sticker would be a start.


You would probably be surprised and maybe encouraged by how many others would comment on it. I believe that there should be a drone operator website where these punks are "outed". We need a drone operator list with names, pictures and addresses... I want to know if my neighbor, my child's friend's father, or the newly hired town cop is or was a murdering serial killer.

If so, they need to be treated like any other murderers.

They need to know even a bit of the terror that they inflict on others. They need to worry every single day, like the way Afghan and Pakistani parents worry, many now not sending their chidren to school because of the American/NATO habit of bombing schools, picnics and any gathering of people.

Can you imagine being afraid to throw a wedding for your child because a bored 22-year old "aviation warfare specialist" on the other side of the world may decide that it could be a terrorist get together and blow it up? That is the reality of life for many people in the world today, especially in Northern Pakistan.

And do you think that this killer drone business will not come to our shores?

Do you think that the same people who plan, approve and carry out strikes on weddings and houses full of children, who blow up an entire restaurant and everyone in it to kill a 16 year old American kid..do you think that these people would hesitate to do the same thing here if they felt a need to?

They kill children but are too nice to do it here?? "They wouldn't do that to us....that's crazy talk!" Remember Waco? There were children there. Twenty-eight of them.

Sooner or later we are going to see a scenario like this...in the United States. A citizen shoots down a surveillance drone flying over his property. The government responds with an armed drone and blows the citizen to shreds. No risk to "law enforcement", call the guy a terror suspect and classify the information so that no one can look any further into it.

The message will be sent to the other uppity citizens that if you mess with us, you will die...today.

And consider this the next time you hear of a "terrorist" bomb, a suicide bombing or a car bomb going off somewhere. The giant V-2 rockets that Germany deployed during WWII were invisible to the naked eye when they hit. These rockets were 46 feet long, nearly 6 feet in diameter, and had a 12 foot wingspan. They were the size of, and looked like, the finned rockets in old science fiction movies.

Hellfire missiles, which US drones use, are less than five feet long, seven inches in diameter, and have a 13" wingspan. By my rough calculations, nearly three hundred Hellfires could fit into a V-2, yet these giants were invisible when they hit. How much more so the Hellfires?

And by the way, do you know how many car bombs had been set off in Iraq before the American/British invasion?

Zero.


Even with all the "sectarian strife" that we were told we must invade to prevent. Look it up..not one recorded car bombing incident until the Americans and Brits got there. Coincidence? I think not.

So if a drone fires a missile at a car in a crowded market and it explodes, it becomes a "car bomb"? In Gaza, shops, houses and cars blow up routinely and it is usually attributed by the Israelis to a bomb blowing up prematurely. You can only use that so many times however, before people start to question things.

I am afraid that we are to the point however, where they do not care about our impressions of their actions as long as we are "shock and awed" enough to fear resisting. Everything the government does, it does gradually...like frogs in a cooking pot, we adjust to each little infringement, each loss of freedom, each "sacrifice" that we are asked (ordered) to endure "for the good of the country".

One day we wake up and realize that we have become slaves to a cartel of profiteers that do not give a damn about us or The United States or the world. We are their tools, their pawns to be used and disposed of as they see fit. They use one group of us to wipe out another group of us, but we are all their pawns... Americans, Iraqis, Pakistanis, whatever.

We are being distracted and manipulated by "nationalism" - by people who have no allegiance to any country. Their loyalty is to power and wealth. They believe that they should rule the world.

When I was growing up, in the movies, cartoons and comic books, the people who wanted to "rule the world" were ALWAYS the bad guys....remember? How did that change? It didn't... wanting to dominate the world remains the wet dream of the most evil amongst us.

The real war going on is a class war. But it is very narrow class indeed which does the ruling..maybe the top 3%. They use fear, nationalism, "patriotism", religion, race, sexual preferences... anything they can to get us to fight each other, but what we always have is one group of poor bastards killing another group of the same so that evil people who have nothing but disdain for all of us can continue to grow in power and wealth.

We average Americans are too nice. We think that our "leaders" are nice also. We cannot imagine lying to the whole world to create a war for profit, or bombing a restaurant full of people to kill a 16-year old kid but they can and have. We cannot imagine torturing people to death, but they can and do. We could not imagine that they would kill 2200 of us on 9-11 to get a war going, but even the government appointed 9-11 commission members do not believe the official story that they say they were railroaded into endorsing. Polls show that a majority of the world does not buy it either.

So, do I think that even massive public pressure would change things, that the US military and the CIA would stop using and promise not to use killer drones anymore, or if they did make such a promise it would be kept? Not for a second. They are here to stay. I think that the only thing we can do is make it as difficult as possible for them. Make them go to a little more effort to cover their tracks. Harass drone-promoting politicians... make them worry. Send a letter to General Atomics, the ghouls that build these Predator drones.

Here is their address:
General Atomics
PO Box 85608
San Diego, California 92186-5608

If you think that their products are shitty, maybe the best way to express that is to send them some......shit! Got a dog? Maybe a cat? There you are... you are just a stamp and an envelope away.

We have generated a lot of well-justified hatred. If Americans were digging through rubble of weddings, restaurants and schools looking for their victims of Chinese drone strikes, I think it is safe to say that we would hate the Chinese.

I would try to figure out a way to fight back if I could. Wouldn't you?

And if Chinese drones were killing Europeans or Japanese in their houses, their restaurants, I would boycott all things Chinese. Despite all our wealth and WMDs, we are just 5% of the world's population. How long can we spit in the faces of the other 95% and not receive serious repercussions?

We use force to resolve differences, but we are an especially warlike society. The rest of the world will simply ignore us, reject us, and starve us out. Remember the fall of the South African apartheid government? That regime lasted a decade longer than it would have only because of loans from AMERICAN banks. The rest of the world had closed it's doors on the racist regime.

Drone operator

No one likes murderous bullies, except it seems, other murderous bullies. Things are going to change. I am surprised that it hasn't happened already. We are raised to think that the whole world admires us and wants to be like us. That may have been the case in the past, but we have become so brutal, hypocritical and arrogant that those days are over. The beautiful young maiden that the world embraced last night has been revealed to be an ugly, syphilitic old whore with bloodstained hands in the morning light.

The honeymoon is ending quickly...

We need to realize that an American boycott could very well happen. Sadly, only then will a huge number of us realize that we have been on the wrong side of history. Many of us will dig in with the "right or wrong, it's us against them" mentality. But most of us, I believe, are good, decent people who wish no harm to anyone. We just want to live our lives the best we can and hopefully raise our children in a happy and peaceful world. And most of us realize that all around the world everyone else is, with very few exceptions, the same.

For most of us our only sin is our silence.

That is how history will judge us.

People want to feel proud of themselves, of their country, of their military. We resist realizations that shatter that perception. It is tough to realize that at this point in time, we are indeed "the bad guys", and we should be ashamed for allowing this world-threatening cancer to grow in our name. But we are continually bombarded with lies and misinformation by a "government" that we were raised to trust and believe in.

What will our overlords do when they realize that we see through their lies, and their time is up? What will they do when our servicemen and women start refusing orders en mass? And how many innocents have to die before that point is reached? THAT is up to us.

"If there be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace." - Thomas Paine

In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 per day.Jacques Yves Cousteau Aparently you dont understand. The Nazi's called it "Life unworthy of life". Let me simply call it "The Philosophy of the Useless Eaters".This philosophy is a mixture of Freud, Plato, Aristotle, Darwin, Marx and many others. The way it was explained to me was basically like this: Man has no natural enemies so he breeds uncontrollably. The artificially created, industrialized world has developed to the stage where it can support the meek of society; cripples, chronically sick, blind and deaf people, etc. Further these people are allowed to breed more cripples, chronically sick, blind and deaf "Useless Eaters" who would have died out in a natural environment and because of this situation, the human race is systematically weakened through enlarging numbers of useless eaters across the world. It has therefore become necessary to control the numbers of the so called "useless eaters" in order for the human race to remain strong and survive. It is important to note that one finds "Useless Eaters" amongst all nations. Race and nationality is of little importance here. TRUTH PEACE

Thanks for speaking up. Thanks Salem-News for printing these viewpoints. We could use a little more golden rule in America. It always starts with a few people speaking up for justice. May we see a revival of the civil rights movement but this time in solidarity with all people of the world, in solidarity with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, of which the United States is both a signatory and frequent violator.

Thank you for your article. I find it sad that after making a point of class warfare and that the privileged few pit the rest of us against one another while they benefit from the suffering that they sponsor - you chose to compare the USA with a woman. I realize that your chosen metaphor - the young maiden turned into an old whore - is a classic image. It is an image propagated on the suffering of women everywhere - from the over sexualization of the young, to the quiet/silent suffering of the old, often in poverty due to the years of unpaid work that women contribute to society raising children and caring for the elderly. This doesn't even start to address the suffering of women of color, of native women, or of women who aren't "fortunate" enough to live in a "progressive country". The policies and mandates you condemn in your article are certainly overwhelmingly conceived and executed by men. I'm sorry to say it but that is a fact. This hunger for world domination and the class warfare you condemn is a machination of the patriarchy - and while I can't absolve all women from participating in or benefiting from it - I can say with certainty that many many more suffer and struggle because of it. The US is neither a young maiden or an old whore. It is a ravenous, lying, schizoid beast. If people wake up to find they do not have what they paid for, it is because they have been lied to. This is the behaviour of corporate puppeteers, not whores. Whores are far more honorable.

How can there even be people who invent this terror much less use it much less engage our children in this mass murder. This is the kind of thing that makes people across the sea really mad at us and who can blame them I am really mad at us too....who wouldn't be? Oh yes that's right....psychopathic mass murderers. I mean humanity. Anything that is even vaguely related to humans and does this implies that I have the capacity within me to be as abusive as this or you or any human put in this powerful yet mechanically distant position. Imagine that they really seem only to be playing a video game! He is in Nevada and the children he vaporized and worse injured and took their families and homes, their lives ruined are 7555 miles away. I mean me. If a 22 year old is capable of this anyone is. Is the 27 year old a killer, a psychopath or is the species or is the US or is the Military industrial complex or is the arms industry or capitalism or patriarchy or religion or government? WE the human species came up with it and use it. We are not stopping it WE are escalating it.

We just had an incident in Boston, where a brainwashed terrorist looked an eight year old boy in the face and smiled as he placed a pot full of gunpowder and nails next to that kid and watched as that bomb tore that poor little boy apart. Thats a HELL of a lot more evil than ACCIDENTALLY killing a child while attempting to kill the SAME kind of terrorist VERMIN who want to kill even MORE of our children. But I suppose we should not do ANYTHING against your terrorist friends? That we should let them attack us without retaliation? FUCK YOU. We did NOT start this conflict and DESPITE you hippy dippy traitor fuckwads and your lying propaganda, we WILL finish it. These fucking terrorists that you bend over backwards to give comfort and ANY benefit of the doubt to, would waste not ONE second in MURDERING you for your support of Human rights, Gay rights, Womens rights and Freedom of speech. If you enjoy the freedoms that we fought OTHER bastards like THEM to secure, you had better figure out which side your bread is buttered on. These monsters cut the noses and ears off of little girls or just shoot them in the face, all for the crime of wanting to go to school and you think WE are the monsters for ACCIDENTALLY killing a civilian in a WAR ZONE YOU FUCKWITTED DICKHEADS? Are you people insane? You fuckhead idiots are truly cringeworthy.  I hope someday that you spout your twisted bullshit around someone affected by 9/11 or the Boston attack. Maybe picking your teeth out of your own shit might make you realize how people really feel about your traitorous view of things OUTSIDE of your little loony left wing circles. I know you numbnuts won't have the guts to publish anything that goes against your "Hate America" spiel, you are pitiful cowards and I thank the powers that be that spineless worms like you are NOT responsible for this nations security. You will probably want to paint me as some sort of racist redneck violent psychopath.You would be wrong YET AGAIN. Anger is normal dipshits. Your hatred of this country is anger making. Your support of REAL EVIL is anger making. Your COWARDICE to stand up against a DESPOTIC religion that is the ANTITHESIS of ALL human rights is anger making. You are too stupid to understand just how awful you and people like you truly are. But your time is coming to an end. Your terrorist friends are going to commit one too many atrocities against us and the payback will be NOTHING like they have EVER seen. And on that day, people will REMEMBER your traitorous support of them. God HELP you on that day losers. If you want a taste of what that day is like, read up on the fate of Nazi collaborators in Paris after liberation in WWII.

Yes, we have murderers and evil in the highest places of government offices.... but they are just as much against the American people as anyone. In fact, they want this country to fail and be destroyed... They want the rest of the world to hate us so that we will eventually experience their wrath. They already allow innocent lives to be destroyed here as an excuse to further push more binding regulations and shackle us into submission to a beast that has invaded our government. They made military war on Ruby Ridge and murdered innocent children, just to take out one guy, when they could have picked him up anywhere else by himself, with no harm to anyone else. As a result of the twin towers killing thousands of innocent people, it gave the federal government the excuse it needed to push the already written and enslaving "PATRIOT Act". There is plenty of evidence to show our own federal government was involved in participating or covering up information. People are realizing that we have been invaded from the inside and they will do whatever and hurt whoever to get their end result of destroying us so that they can bring us into a one world government. That is no longer a theory by the way... They openly talk about their dream government now.

michael mazur April 27, 2013 3:32 am (Pacific time)

As all the terrorists are in the employ of the CIA, the Drone pilots can only be given non terrorist targets; the women and children and equally innocent men and wedding parties and funeral processions, since the paid terrorists are there to shoot up American and non American allied troops. Regrets are routinely issued with promises to investigate the latest massacre of women and children, but next week it will be more of the same, because as i said, blowing up your own CIA paid terrorist is not an option. About Anwar al Awlaki, he dined at the Pentagon within weeks of 911.

And besides most of our liberties/freedoms have been or in the [process of being taken away. A police state has already begun. And to beat all? THe U.S. is arming and supporting alCIAda operatives (the so called "syrian rebels" to take over syria. And they are brutal, they are beheading and burning Christians in Syria, which was until now, a somewhat stable country. You dont think the Syrians are upset with the west? What if China came and invaded the U.S. killing anything in their path? Syria was no threat to us, and all wars are banker wars. If a country, such as Iraq, Libya, Syria, do not use the central banking system, they get invaded. When/if Iran gets invaded it wil be for the same reason. Not for our freedom nor security...

I am speechless by what the anonymous wrote in this comments area on April 19th, 2013 at 11>57 AM (Pacific Time). What horrifies me is that most Americans feel the exact same way he/she does... :-(

Before 911, hardly any American gave 2nd thought to the religion of peace. Why not study 1200 year history of India since Muslim invasion began there? Those who ignore history shall be doomed to repeat it. Many Americans have also given much thought about Islam because of the 1979 Tehran embassy siege, the 1986 Berlin discotheque bombing, the 1985 highjacking of TWA flight 847 from Athens to Rome, the 1985 hijacking of the cruise ship Achille Lauro and the murder of wheelchair-bound Leon Klinghoffer, the 1972 murder of the Israeli Olympic team in Munich, the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Scotland, the 2000 USS Cole bombing, the 1983 Marine barracks bombing in Beirut, the 2002 Bali nightclub bombing, and 1300 years of terror all arond the world. etc. What’s different is that it finally came to our shores in 2001 because we did almost nothing about it in the preceding 40 years.

" no literary awards, journalistic awards or college degrees. He has at one time or another been a honor student, inmate, biker, Christian, pothead, father, radical, pacifist, anarchist, artist, heavy metal guitarist, model citizen, lawbreaker, business owner, illegal marijuana grower, and volunteer for various causes" ?!!!! ...Vic!!! never mind the Drones , ever thought of writing your own life story, for a moody independent hollywood movie ? . I heard Quentin Tarantino is looking for some good gritty stories ( I think you two will get on like a house on fire )

War is hell, and the radicals, who hide behind innocents, brought it on them and the innocents. Maybe it's time for the innocents to get rid of those who set them up. Very doubtful much sympathy will alter the Drone strategies, especially after 9/11/2001. Mayb Vic you should go to other countries in the Pacific rim area and learn about the slaughtering of innocents by Muslim radicals. As far as Drones, they would be perfect for border security, and instead of explosives, or deadly rockets, have them set up to contact the border patrol with GPS locations of invaders. Many of them are radicals coming here to kill Americans. Time to set up large tent cities with minefields and confine all illegals for longer periods each time they are caught. They kill dozens of Americans daily with their crimes, and cost our society billions. We have over 23 million unemployed and under-employed...time to E-verify and prosecute. Hardball time. So Vic, over 50 million killed since the 70's via abortion, does that bother you? It does not me, nor does it bother me when we kill those who would kill us now, or in the future. These Boston terrorists, with a great American lifestyle, still just wanted to kill us. I get misty-eyed happy when any Muslim, regardless of age is sent to Satan. God Bless America.

Until we bring Bush and Cheney to justice as mass murders we will keep on having things that happen in Boston, over and over again. They lied to americans about the Iraq war. There they raped the women, killed them, killed their babies and yet we don't do anything about bringing these two to justice and until we do we will lose many more precious innocent lives. The news media will NEVER bring this truth out so we have to
