Rush Limbaugh: Obama Drone Policy Means You Can Kill a Terrorist You Just Can’t Waterboard Him (Video)

It’s an Obama world.
Rush Limbaugh went off on Barack Obama’s shocking drone policy on his show. Rush wondered out loud,

“Does this mean that Nixon coulda taken out Bill Ayers? Does this mean that Richard Nixon could have taken out the New Black Panther Party?”

This was classic Rush Limbaugh.
Via Greta Van Susteren:

Transcript from the Rush Limbaugh website:

If this provision had been in place back in the seventies, does this mean that Nixon could have assassinated the Weathermen? Does this mean that Nixon coulda taken out Bill Ayers? Does this mean that Richard Nixon could have taken out the New Black Panther Party? It doesn’t mean that? Well, “…’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 US.

“The 16-page memo, a copy of which was obtained by NBC News,” which means the administration gave it to ’em, “provides new details about the legal reasoning behind one of the Obama administration’s most secretive and controversial polices: its dramatically increased use of drone strikes against al-Qaida suspects abroad, including those aimed at American citizens.”

Remember all the grief that George Bush got for warrantless wiretaps on phone calls? Do you remember that? I remember when Bush was president, the American left was literally having conniption fits.

Does that mean Nixon coulda killed Bill Ayers? It does mean that. Bill Ayers or the Weathermen. He had an active plot against the US, bombed the Pentagon. If Nixon had assumed the kind of power that Obama’s assuming, he could have sent a commando team out to wipe out Bill Ayers. You can’t kill rogue leaders. No, you cannot. By law, we cannot assassinate foreign leaders. We can now kill Americans, as long as we say they are related to Al-Qaeda somehow. And that link isn’t too tough. Al-Qaeda hates America. All you have to do is hate America and it could be said that you are an associated force.

Remember all of the anger that the left had over waterboarding. And look at this now. I think I have this right. Constitutional scholar Barack Obama is demanding the right to kill American citizens without making his case to a judge, as long as he thinks the American in question is in an upper tier of operations of Al-Qaeda or a related group. But he can’t waterboard the guy. You can kill him, but we can’t waterboard him. We can kill the son of a…, but we can’t torture him. Have I got this right? I think I do. I thought you should know.

    Exactly what I was thinking. With an Obamaite ‘torture’ that doesn’t do physical damage or cause death is a horrible violation of the constitution. But ‘drone attacking’ that does cause physical damage and death is constitutional and ethical. How does anyone with half a brain buy into this dribble.

    It’s called war. You can shoot and kill the enemy in the field of battle, but once they become prisoners of war, there are certain rules regarding the treatment of same. And torture is banned, even if it does not leave permanent physical damage.

    How does anyone with half a brain buy into this dribble.
    Couldn’t say. But to those of us with a whole brain, it makes perfect sense.

    Good thing that Soros has let loose with a new pile of money so that you can continue to attempt to insert your lefty dribble (and whatever other waste products you produce in mommy’s basement) on the comments sections of the cybersphere.

    I think it’s time to go upstairs and see if mommie has washed your change of undies!

    The nice thing about this observation is that we don’t have to worry about he Loony Left crying about terrorists being waterboarded (or incarcerated in Gitmo either). Just kill ’em and get it over with.

  • Patty

    We all can confirm that Obama and Holder have over step their powers putting it mildly.

    Interrogations like waterboarding was endless criticism by the left. Nothing when this president is going to kill Americans will no one, not Congress or the intelligence stepping in.

    Obama can kill Americans. This is call for Impeachment. I have been waiting but it never comes.

    Hilarious the hypocracy!! I was in freedom square in front of the air and space museum when a hoard of libtards were demonstrating in protest of the drone strike that killed the kid from Colorado. My friend actually was hit with pepper spray when the knuckleheads stormed inside the museum and defaced the flag and the drone exhibit. But now, your love child BO says its ok and the lemmings head over the cliff and support it as the ethical thing to do. The kids dad, maybe he was an enemy combatant. The kid WAS A MINOR!!!!!!!! I don’t give a 5hit what anyone says, that kid’s constitutional rights did not end because he left the country. If there won’t be any criminal punishment for the murder, at least I know someone will rot in hell.

  • Patty

    I would be investing in Drones.

  • shadow

    For those of you wondering what I look like, grab a dictionary and look up hypocrite … there should be a picture of me there ….

    When it comes to murder and illegal acts of war, I was against them before I was for them, and I will continue to flip flop on the issue like a fish on hot pavement. Those of you familiar with my twisted logic know that my position on the subject has always depended on which party the sitting President belongs to …

    In other news, Lincoln’s Weirdo, jharp, Leslie and I have been racking our brains trying to dream up a good strategy to deal with the new comment system that’s coming. We suspect that our BS probably isn’t going to be tolerated here anymore, and we’re scared s**tless that we might have to identify ourselves or provide a valid e-mail address. We’re getting paid to do this, and any interruption in the flow of propaganda is going to cost us dearly. Plus, we’ve always gotten a big kick out of being able to use someone else’s forum to advance our ideology and it’s going to be difficult to give that up without a fight.

    Of course, we’re blaming this change on everyone else, but we know it’s mostly our fault, We feel rather stupid about that, but this isn’t the first time we’ve shot ourselves in the foot by being arrogant, ill-informed cage-rattlers. Perhaps we’ll just appeal to Obama, and see if we can’t get him to issue an executive order that allows trolls to remain anonymous as long as they’re propping his administration up. In lieu of that, we may have to request some additional money from our handlers so we can set up some remote servers somewhere. We’ll keep you posted …

  • what?

    Yes it is civilized and more honorable to kill your enemies and not torture them.

  • MonkeyWrench

    How long before our government starts using weaponized drones right here in America to go after “Domestic Terrorists”? They now believe they can legally attack Americans who they have declared as terrorists. Since terrorists attack us here, then America should be considered an official battlefield, right?

    The Patriot Act allows Obama to read all your emails and and phone calls. All he has to do is say the magic words, “I think he is a terrorist.” Should be pretty easy to track you via your communications and financial activities, and then hunt you down with a drone. BTW, drones are getting smaller and cheaper every day.

    Between the public cameras and the drones and the Patriot Act, they can pretty much follow your every activity is they want to. That forces Americans to live a life that does not draw scrutiny from the government. Soon we will all be thinking, “I better not do/say that, because the government might mistake me as a terrorist.”

    This has NOTHING to do with political parties. It started with Bush monitoring our emails and phone calls and signing the Patriot Act (to keep us safe!). Now Obama has put it into overdrive and ramped it up to the next level.

  • Jeffery

    Here’s what Limbaugh conflates: Torturing a CAPTURED terrorist is fundamentally different from assassinating a suspected terrorist you cannot CAPTURE.

    Me, the ACLU, Limbaugh and the Gateway Pundit object to this policy. Most Americans will support it.

    Limbaugh is very good at what he does and that is why he makes $200,000 a show.

  • Justsayn

    Pres Obama and the Left have no credibility in the rules of war, with that being said. These so-called Radical Muslim Americans on Yemen soil aligned with Al-Quaeda should have been eliminated. The CIA and DOD did the right thing and kill these traitors.

  • Jeffery

    Congress can pass a law today overruling the administration policy.

    Why don’t they? The Republicans support the policy. The Democrats support the President.

    Also, Mr. Hoft is being disingenuous (and most of you know it). He also supports the administration policy but dislikes the President even more.

    He hates the President so much that he is willing to sleep with the ACLU and the far-left bloggers.

    Do you really think that Rush Limbaugh objects to the US government killing a terrorist in Yemen, even if that terrorist is a US citizen? Really?

    I object to the policy but in general support the President otherwise. I call on Congress to do their duty, undo the Patriot Act and override this harmful policy of targeted assassination of US citizens who are alleged terrorists.

    shadow,

    Our constitution is agnostic about us killing non-citizens overseas. I personally do not favor the US assassinating anyone.

  • owl

    This should be the drum that is beaten everyday. They are Finger Pointing Killer Preachers.

    They do not capture and form Gitmos. They KILL the prisoners to solve that problem.

    It is their pattern. Our side allows them to preach about our low morals while they KILL.

  • Joanne

    Obama is for the torture and murdering of the unborn. You can’t dismember a baby in the womb and think that this is not torture. Obama is judge and executioner. I really can’t believe that Americans only can talk about this and aren’t in the streets going nuts over this nutjob in Office. This isn’t sane folks – something is terribly wrong with this picture. Obviously, Obama is a madman, but looking at the complacency of the American people is even far more troubling. It is really becoming very clear how Jews just walked into the gas chambers naked to their deaths without a fight.

  • Joanne

    Everyone knows that Obama is not going to just stick to targeting people outside the U.S. This is all a precursor to him calling hits on Americans in the U.S. We all know he perceives everyone who is against him to be a terrorist – all those bible thumping conservative christians are going to be legitimate targets in his own mind.
