A Chiefs Fan Prank Called A C-SPAN Discussion On Drone Strikes

The fun thing about C-SPAN is if you ever get on the air, you can just start dropping names of professional athletes and they’ll be none the wiser. Case in point: a Chiefs fan posing as “Gonzo from Lebanon, Missouri” called into a C-SPAN discussion on the use of drone strikes and slipped into a little sports talk.

For me really it comes down to the ends do not justify the means. One thing I decided is, you know, innocent Americans, you’ve got Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed, and then Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, who was injured, really opened my eyes on unnecessary drone usage. I also believe it breaks international law. The charter is clear on what’s allowed and what isn’t. I could cite former UN member Sabby Piscitelli that drone strikes, you know, they do do break human rights treaties. In the end I simply think there are other methods that work better in the John Dorsey era such as paying Justin Houston or drafting a wideout.

In fairness, I wouldn’t exactly describe former safety Sabby Piscitelli as a household name.
