#1 Apple has blocked an app that would notify subscribers every time a US drone carried out a deadly mission on the grounds that it is "objectionable and crude"

Releasing the info would be "objectionable and crude" or drone-zapping and checking these buggers off the kill list would be? The article is unclear about this. What is the general bias of Apple politics? Very liberal/left would be my guess.

#2 It would seem that this info would be classified. Probably very generic info could be released. Sometimes I've got to scratch my head. The left wing got all bent out of shape about waterboarding and Abu Ghraib but drone-zapping is O.K.

WaterGate and the Valerie Plame brouhaha were kept going by the Donks for a long time. Beghazhi doesn't seem to get much attention from the lame streamers. I guess it all depends on who is doing things. Hypocrisy reigns supreme in the party of the donkeys.
