(NEWSER) – A new book on the 2012 election has President Obama making a rather brutal claim, particularly, as Michael Kelley notes at Business Insider, for a Nobel Peace laureate: The president said to aides that he's "really good at killing people." The quote comes fromDouble Down, by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, and it's mentioned briefly in Peter Hamby's Washington Postreview. (Hamby gives it as an example of the book having "click-bait aplenty.") Kelley, for his part, observes that Obama's comment is quite accurate.
