re: Obama's "Rules for Assassination" just leaked


quote:

im sorry but anyone fighting against our military despite being an American citizen is one of the biggest middle fingers someone can do to America and therefore deserves no rights carried with our citizenship.
Article 3, Section 3 of the Constitution defines treason and the requirements for conviction of treason. Specifically, "Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. The Congress shall have power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted."

Please explain how this supposed policy meets the requirement of an open court with the testimony of two witnesses, or a confession?

It is one thing for someone to be killed in routine military operations, but to claim targeted killings are routine military operations is ridiculous given the need for an exceptional policy to cover just such events.

so in THEORY, our enemies could just become US citizens and that would eliminate our ability take them out if they werent on a "battlefield". The war that is going on right now can someone define to me where exactly the "battlefield" is?




You just took a steaming shite on two dem positions.

Until proven guilty in a court of law, yes.

I support this.

It's simply not practical to go the court of law route in cases like this.

This is one time we have to turn a bit of a blind eye to the way we would like things to be for national security.

I support this policy completely.

U r shitting right? Who determines "known"?

If I'm not mistaken, that authority is given to the President via the Patriot Act.

Whoever didn't see all this coming when they passed the PA is a fool.

Bush at least set up "secret" courts to wire tap. It's insane to think a single person can make the decision to kill someone.

Well apparently that has been delegated to some as yet unknown senior level persons.

You never know:


Section. 9.
...
The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.



Amendment V

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger...

Yeah I'd love to see the DOJ defend the actions on those grounds. No chance they hold up.
