bombs us
The Obama White House published their rules for assassinating Americans.
NBC News reported:

A confidential Justice Department memo concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of 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.

The 16-page memo, a copy of which was obtained by NBC News, 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, such as the  September 2011 strike in Yemen that killed alleged al-Qaida operatives Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan. Both were U.S. citizens who had never been indicted by the U.S. government nor charged with any crimes.

A copy of the not-so-secret memo is posted below the fold.

  1. Why does this scare me?

    I can see its usefulness but……no judicial review? Just bombs away? Uh, hopefully, someone on O’s kill card list won’t be living next to me. My homeowner’s insurance doesn’t pay for secondary shrapnel problems to couches and tv’s.

  2. And the first time it takes out the wrong peeps because of a mistaken address?
    “Oops, my bad” says Homie the Klown.

  3. “White House: It’s OK to Drop Bombs on Americans”

    But you have your AR 15′s and 40 caliber glocks to shoot back, right?

    See how ridiculous it is for you nitwits to be stockpiling ammo and weapons?

    You fools wouldn’t last one day in your Rambo fantasies.

  4. It is bad enough worrying about nations who hate us, BUT NOW OUR OWN GOVERNMENT.

  5. It’s OK. Obama’s a Democrat.

    You wouldn’t last one day in your Rambo fantasies.

  7. The other “problem” I see here is that we’re not supposed to be scrutinizing our fellow man to see if they are Muslim or what have you, so when the neighbors move in next door and suddenly the drone strikes at Elm St. (which every city has) – that’s a slight problem….no? Or is this just in “other” parts of the world.

    Which would then make traveling very risky for anyone that might have given to a candidate Homeland Security deems a group frightful enough to warrant a drone action.

    Better not go on that cruise to France. Good gosh. The implications are frightening.

  8. While in Yemen, Al-alaqi and later his 16 yr old son were assassinated by the US goverment. Both men were American citizens. Neither had been convicted of a crime, although they were suspected of being al qaida leaders.

    If you’re looking for something unconstitutional, this is it.

  9. Let me be the first liberal here to state that this is worse than President Bush’s torture policy.

  10. the people at fox news better look out.

  11. You wouldn’t last one day in your Rambo fantasies.

    How ’bout you climb out from behind your mommy’s fat ass and test us on that, jdouche?

    Bet you wouldn’t last 10 seconds before your ugly face tasted concrete, skank.

  12. U.S. Can Kill American Citizens Without Trial: Eric Holder

    WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday that the decision to kill a U.S. citizen living abroad who poses a terrorist threat “is among the gravest that government leaders can face,” but justified lethal action as legal and sometimes necessary in the war on terror.

    Holder’s comments broke the administration’s silence on the legal justifications for its decision to kill American-born al-Qaida operative Anwar al-Awlaki five months ago in Yemen. In a speech at Northwestern University law school in Chicago, he described al-Awlaki as concocting plans to kill Americans but he never explicitly acknowledged the administration responded by targeting the cleric for death.

    [........................]

    He said the government must determine after careful review that the citizen poses an imminent threat of violent attack against the U.S., capture is not feasible and the killing would be consistent with laws of war.[...............]

    Obama administration officials told The Associated Press that Obama approved al-Awlaki’s killing in April 2010, when he became the first American placed on the CIA “kill or capture” list.

    “Any decision to use lethal force against a United States citizen – even one intent on murdering Americans and who has become an operational leader of al-Qaida in a foreign land – is among the gravest that government leaders can face,” Holder said. “The American people can be – and deserve to be – assured that actions taken in their defense are consistent with their values and their laws.”

    MUCH MORE HERE AND THIS HAS BEEN IN THE WORKS FOR AWHILE NOW. NO SURPRISE.

  13. The must have a surplus of drones or a quota. Kinda like a car salesmen.

    But Holder is the snake who is selling this.

    I thought the guy would leave but before he does, he is dropping the bomb.

    No need to test you Rambo wannabes. Your talk is just that, talk. And if you whackaloons try again stupid I have Obama to do my bidding.

    And again, you fools wouldn’t last one day.

  15. #4…nitwits? do you know what you are doing to these people’s self-esteem? i never thought a compasionate liberal say such mean-spirited things.

    as for the effectiveness of small arms fire againist aircraft ask the pilots that flew in viet nam.

  16. Why does this scare me?

    I don’t know. Do you have plans on becoming involved in terrorism? Moving to an Islamic country? Hanging out with Ayman al-Zawahiri and company?

  17. No need to test you Rambo wannabes. Your talk is just that, talk. And if you whackaloons try again stupid I have Obama to do my bidding.

    That’s what I thought. You’re a coward, jdouche – just like the rest of your Demoscum butt-buddies. You’d p*ss your panties if you had to face any of us.

    And again, you fools wouldn’t last one day.

    How would you know? You’re too chickensh*t to come get some.
