What are you cryin' about. Their entire argument is founded on Bush's argument for torture and the suspension of Due Process. Read the white paper for yourself.Legal experts expressed grave reservations Tuesday about an Obama administration memo concluding that the United States can order the killing of American citizens believed to be affiliated with al-Qaida — with one saying the White House was acting as “judge, jury and executioner.”
The experts said that the memo, first obtained by NBC News, threatened constitutional rights and dangerously expanded the definition of national self-defense and of what constitutes an imminent attack.
“Anyone should be concerned when the president and his lawyers make up their own interpretation of the law or their own rules,” said Mary Ellen O’Connell, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame and an authority on international law and the use of force.
“This is a very, very dangerous thing that the president has done,” she added.
With all due respect, this law professor needs to take a ticket and get in line when it comes to the very, very dangerous things this president does.
Yes, this most horrible thing they've done can ALSO be ultimately blamed on Bush. I told y'all you wouldn't like it if the opposition got a hold of the powers y'all established.
