When a country's stated foreign policy is extra-judicial assassinations , don't be surprised when they ride roughshod over your human rights.
As far as I'm concerned if an American citizen associates themselves with Al Qaida they just committed treason on the United States punishable by death.
Another damned if he does, damned if he doesn't situation for Obama ... if he fails to take actions like this he gets criticized for being to soft ... if he takes actions which must be legal ... then he's overstepping his authority.
This memo opens up the door to treating american soil the same way they are blowing up people in Afghanistan. It is disgusting to think our government is going that far but to expected with all the military training that is takinf place among civilians. They are preparing us for war on the american people by getting us used to it. Then when they come in they still have the element of surprise. I think they arw preparing the troopa to work among us as well by having them train among us. I cant see most of them being willing to shoot on fellow Americans.
About time the chickens came home, eh?
I'm down with that. If you are working with Al Qaeda, I don't give a **** if you get a missile fired down your throat.
" American citizens if they are believed to be “senior operational leaders” of al-Qaida or “an associated force” -- even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S." That's enough definition for me.
"believed to be senior operational leaders of al-Qaida" is pretty specific.
Hey I didn't vote for this guy, but this may be the best thing he's done. He should have the tools available to respond to an imminent AL Qaeda threat. You make it sound like he will be bombing tea-partiers, at cookouts in Arizona..
