The event ended when the plane carrying the Americans left the airport.
Total event time was a bit over twelve hours.
Obama going to bed at 11PM so he'd be fresh to party hearty with Beyonce and JayZ was your story Flacko and you sure as fk didn't hear Panetta say that.
It's snowing at Bear Mountain where Dorner is said to be hiding!
Too bad he's black, they'll think he's a black bear, sticking out like a sore thumb. He's a goner soon, unless he brought a kkk hoodie!

Never, but he will never surrender either.
Right now, despite every cop in the region being on the case, they have no clue where he is. Most of the cops are milling around in the snow at Big Bear, but Dorner is probably long gone.
Meanwhile, a myriad of other crimes will not be attended to because they're all on a wild goose chase. He can't hide forever. I think he'll kill himself.

That sort of thing happened in Vietnam because the troops didn't want to obey lawful, but stupid, orders in a ridiculous war where they were a political sacrifice.
Come to think of it, that might apply now.
I wasn't referring to Vietnam, dear, but no matter. If Vietnam, however, was not "illegal" - how bout that Gulf of Tonkin incident?- then, obviously, nothing is illegal. Therefore, a soldier DOES NOT have the right to disobey an illegal order because there's no such thing. Your words, not mine.

Following recent revelations about President Obama‘s drone program — including a Justice Department memo that details some legal reasoning behind it — there’s been a flurry of both support and criticism. On Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) weighed in, defending the president.

"Every member of Congress needs to get on board," Graham said, according to POLITICO. "It’s not fair to the president to let him, leave him out there alone quite frankly. He’s getting hit from libertarians and the left."

and FOX says drones kill Muslims so it's all good.

The nifty thing about the convenient concept of there not being any such thing as an "illegal" order, is that if the orders are never illegal then no one can ever be held accountable for issuing them. Quite the catchy arrangement.

Accusations are flying everywhere
"When Obama came into office, he promptly increased the drone strikes in Pakistan in an effort to kill more Taliban that were hiding out in the tribal regions of Pakistan. However, it was already known during the Bush administration that the drone strikes had killed civilians, yet Obama decided to continue this policy, knowing that in doing so he would put more Pakistani civilians at risk. By doing this, he is violating Geneva Convention Article 3 Section 1A which states that “violence to life and person” are prohibited in reference to civilians and “Persons taking no active part in the hostilities.” In doing this Obama has committed war crimes"
Oh really? It's never going to happen, because it will then open the can of worms that Nancy Pelosi put to bed when she said "impeachment is off the table", if they start; then Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz et al, are going down with the ship.

Uproar has been evident on both sides of the aisle following the recent news about President Obama‘s drone program. Not everyone, however, has been critical. Including Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson, who questioned some of the outrage during this morning’s show.

Carlson wondered why the issue is “suddenly a topic of discussion.” American-born Anwar al-Awlaki was killed in a drone strike in 2011, and there weren’t many outraged immediately afterward, she said — save for the ACLU and some libertarians.

Yes, it’s hypocritical for Obama to criticize President George W. Bush‘s tactics, Carlson continued, but that’s a separate issue.“Are you against actually killing terrorists?” she asked.

The LAPD has always been out of control. That cop will end up killing himself.
A 71-year old Asian grandmother delivering newspapers definitely resembles Dorner.

And yet, gun control advocates want only trigger-happy cops (and retired cops) to be armed.

Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., called the White House’s legal footing on a policy allowing drone strikes on American civilians “solid” in an interview with Andrea Mitchell Wednesday. Rogers, the House Intelligence Committee Chair, countered a frequent criticism of the Obama administration’s drone powers, attesting that “there is oversight.”
