Obama’s ‘kill list’ critic found dead in New York City

Prominent American blogger and computer prodigy Aaron Swartz, who spoke against US President Barack Obama’s “kill list” and cyber attacks against Iran, has been found dead in New York.

Obama’s ‘kill list’ critic found dead in New York City

Police found the body of the 26-year-old in his apartment in New York City borough of Brooklyn on Friday, said a spokeswoman for the city’s chief medical examiner.

Brooklyn’s chief medical examiner ruled the death a suicide by hanging, but no further detail is available about the mysterious death.

Last year, Swartz openly criticized the US and the Israeli regime for launching joint cyber attacks against Iran.

The blogger was also vocal in criticizing Obama’s so-called kill list and other policies.

Obama has been reportedly approving the names put on the “kill lists” used in the targeted killing operations carried out by US assassination drones.

Every week or so, more than 100 members of the US national security team gather via secure video teleconference run by the Pentagon and go over the biographies of suspects in Yemen, Somalia, and Pakistan, and “nominate” those who should be targeted in the attacks.

Obama is then provided with the identities of those put on the “kill list” and signs off on every strike in Yemen and Somalia as well as the risky strikes in Pakistan.

Swartz was also widely credited for co-authoring the specifications for the Web feed format RSS 1.0 (Rich Site Summary) which he worked on at age 14.

RSS is designed to deliver content from sites that change constantly, such as news pages, to users.

Swartz was critical of monopoly of information by corporate cartels and believed that information should be shared and available for the benefit of society.

“Information is power. But like all power, there are those who want to keep it for themselves,” he wrote in an online “manifesto” in 2008.

Based on that belief, the computer prodigy founded the nonprofit group DemandProgress.

The group launched a successful campaign to block a 2011 bill that the US House of Representatives called the Stop Online Piracy Act.

Had it been approved, the bill would have allowed court orders to restrain access to some websites considered to be involved in illegal sharing of intellectual property.

DemandProgress argued that the thwarted Stop Online Piracy Act would have broadly authorized the US government to censor and restrict legitimate Web communication.

    If the Govt suicided this guy,then why now after all of his critiques have been released. Honestly…if the dark forces are so conniving about his work; they would have intervened, stopped the dissemination of his work, And authorities would have found him dead in the arms of a transsexual hooker surrounded with child porn videos.
    The guy was facing multiple felony theft charges; refused to turn the dime on his accomplices, and was taking the full brunt of the judicial departments wrath over this. He cracked.
    That’s all there is to it. If someone else offed him; it was probably his partners.

    this article conveniently leaves out the fact that he was facing 13 felony charges for copying millions of articles from MIT, which could have resulted in him spending decades in prison and having to pay massive fines. he wasn’t going to get off.

    nice spin though, omitting that information makes it seem like he was silenced by the government. including it paints the picture that he killed himself rather than go to prison for what might be the rest of his natural life. he knew the evidence against him would bury him, and honestly i can’t say i blame him. prison is no place for techies.

    “Suicide” by fedgov….yeah, we sure live in a “free” country alright…where all of the stink rich parasites who get everything for producing nothing and who gamble with our money and pocket the wins and expect us to bail their sorry asses out and assume the losses, can have anybody rubbed out as a convenient “suicide”. Lights Out, America.

    Noz…You are right on the money…but democracy ended when the so calked free citizens re elected a false lying murderous muslim as president….now all will ultimately pay and democracy gives 51percent the right to trample the rights of 49percent. A majority of 75percent should apply maybe but its all going to be too little too late. The Schwartz factor is dying and truth seekers will be extinct before freedom can prevail again…the fight has gone out with the light …. Of reason hat is!!!

    This is the beginning of the end of Democracy when the government kill a true american ” Minuteman Patriot “, at age of 14, he wrote a program to give away free information, and expose the corruption; example – ( Obama Kill List ) in the government, Swartz Moral Character with the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independent his guiding Light, is the foundation of Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness. The capitalist psychopath did not want him to live, he got rail roaded and no medical proof how he committed suicide, it is the same as the close casket at [ ” remember-Ken Lay close casket when he died mysteriously before his criminal trial ” ]. The government refuse to release more information of his medical autopsy on how he committed suicide.

    Thomas Jefferson and founding fathers must be turning in their graves looking down on their proud legacy – FREEDOM – being trashed by the very people who should have kicked this arrogant muslim pretender president out of America or into a high security prison by now. How stupid and blind have Americas majority of citizens become??? Jesse Ventura, Ron Paul and a few brave men are all thats left in a land of woeful sheeple…truly pathetic and this black war mongering dictating bastard will make you all slaves in the muslim matrix he is part of. God help Americas good people because you sure as hell are the minority now.

    Anybody that opposes Obama is going to end up like this . and it is only going to get worse .. the more power Obama obtains the more he becomes a dictator instead of a president . Wake up people . this should send red alerts coursing through the veins of the American people .
