Jon Stewart on Obama's 'Kill List'

Jon Stewart: It Is an 'Inconceivable Breach of Human Rights...to Tell Us About the Kill List'

The recent revelations about President Obama's "kill list" – and the image of the president personally selecting individuals to be blown to pieces by drones – are downright scary. Which is why Jon Stewart begged on last night's Daily Show: "Please tell me people are upset about this." And people are upset; it's just that, at least in Washington, they're upset for the wrong reasons – either because they don't like leaks or because, as John McCain complained, the "kill list" disclosures make the president look good. But do they make Obama look good? Stewart isn't buying it: "Here's a leak that would make him look good: Ooh, the president has a secret program to answer every child's letter to Santa Claus. The President keeps a classified list of things he loves about his family. I just heard from an anonymous source that the president fights crime at night as Batman." Watch:
