Don't see the problem.

You must not have read the memo.

Or you're being intentionally obstinate because it says the "US Government" and not explicitly "Obama".


I never agree with Morris but he is right.

The memo was written so vague that you can easily presume the government "executive branch" has the authority to kill US citizens suspected of working with AQ. There is NO BURDEN OF PROOF laid at the feet of of the Executive Branch. Hence, there is no oversight by the Legislative or Judicial Branch.

This memo puts the chills down my spine.

Exactly. The OP of this thread, is the quote of the year IMO.

quote:

If Obama has the legal authority to assassinate US citizens who are aiding Al Qaeda...

How come he hasn't assassinated himself



The memo directive reads loosely. i e....

I work for a company that has a half owner thats name is Abdul. Abdul is a sleeper and all's I did was work in his office. Obama could drone me easily if it pleased his mack daddy self that day..

After firing on a home invader it is likely you will be arrested. Once detained you will be questioned. If the police find evidence you shot with the intent to kill you will be prosecuted. This is my understanding from the multiple-decades long CCL holder in the office. How does this sound anything like what Obama is doing? Attackers =/= Possible conspirators
