Remember, kids — never trust the headline.

To be clear, the 1st paragraph states that this was done by the Obama administration. Not a fan of Trump, but you know, journalism. https://t.co/qdCnYvOrsv

2nd paragraph: "…placed on the 'kill list' by the Obama admin, a decision maintained by the Trump WH"
Headline basically a despicable lie. https://t.co/tO8oydEcqj

From The Hill:
Two journalists are suing President Trump and other top U.S. officials, claiming that they are on the government’s “kill list” of individuals targeted for drone strikes, Politico reported Thursday.
The journalists, former Al Jazeera Islamabad bureau chief Ahmad Zaidan and freelance journalist Bilal Kareem, say in the lawsuit that they were placed on the “kill list” by the Obama administration, a decision maintained by the Trump White House.
Kareem claims he has nearly died in five separate airstrikes over the year, while Zaidan, who has reported extensively on al Qaeda and interviewed the terrorist group’s now-deceased leader, Osama bin Laden, multiple times, says he is on the “kill list” because he was improperly designated as a member of the group, as well as the Muslim Brotherhood.
