liberal media?<quoted text>
Obama can kill any Liberal idiot he wants using drones!!!
But if Bush think about it he will be branded "genocide criminal" by the left!!!
Where are the so called "civil rights defenders", now?
NOWHERE because they really do not care about civil rights, they are just a front of the Liberal party, like the feminists, gays, unions, La Raza, etc.
See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites easy to fool by their own Liberal Media.
The release of a Justice Department white paper outlining the administrations legal case for the targeted killing of American citizens who are in cahoots with al-Qaeda has raised protest from the left, which has leeway to criticize the president now that he has been safely reelected, and unfortunately from some on the right, who find it convenient to locate their inner civil-liberty scolds when the White House is occupied by a Democrat. But there is in fact little novel in the white paper or the principles on which it relies. Due process is not generally required in battlefield situations, and an American citizen engaged in hostilities against the United States, on foreign soil and in concert with a terrorist force, is surely not entitled to counsel and a hearing before being dispatched. If he were, it would paralyze our ability to fight war.
And lest we forget, a war it is. We are met in a congressionally authorized armed conflict with Islamist terrorists, one that both sides acknowledge. But even if we were not so engaged, the president would have not only the authority but the obligation to use whatever force is necessary to quell imminent threats to the United States and her population.
defending civil rights?
the left wing media sure don't say those sort of things.
