Why would Colin Powell lie to make the case for war when he knew it was a lie?
Colin Powell lied when he gave the reason for his voting for Obama, after having been a member of the Republican party, and we all know why he suddenly had a "change of heart and party".

I'm talking about drones right here in our own country being targeted at "suspected" Americans.
Did you happen to catch the news report late last night about a reported Drone sighted flying around JFK Airport in heavy air traffic late yesterday?

An Air Italia Pilot reported it to the Control Tower.

Nothing reported further since.

This is getting spooky. Make that Spooky with a capital S.

You may have misunderstood the poster; he's one of the good guys.
Carol, Galt, Flack, Emam et al are the corporate water carriers. They're still waiting for trickle down!
Current corporate profits are a hollow shell in the Obama economy.

Corporations are making profits by cutting overhead (employees) to the bone, not by growing the business. Much of this is because Obama policies, mostly Obamacare, make employees unaffordable. This strategy works in the short term, but is not sustainable.

Guess he feels strongly about this appointment, especially someone who would give Obama sole authority to decide which Americans get zapped by a drone.
Senator Rand Paul's opposition is to Obama's drone execution policy. not to the insignificant cypher appointed to the CIA.

i WOULDN'T ARGUE WITH YOU THAT our police can be very heavy handed at times. Likely a result of so many crimes, perhaps tied to drug laws. I learned when young the best course is a low profile and to obey traffic laws, keeps your encounters with the police to an absolute minimum.
The police never seem to be disciplined either.
But yet Obama wants the police (and retired cops, no less) to be the only ones with guns.

Who protects us from them?

Valerie Plame was a Washington party girl, not a covert CIA agent.
John,

A House subcommittee investigation came to a different conclusion. She worked behind the cover of a private firm, Jennings Brewster and Associates. She managed spies overseas and was head of the CIA's Joint Iraqi Task Force.

To describe Plame as a "party girl" is clearly spin of the thinnest kind.

She was in her 40s, married, with two kids.

Most people who have children don't want criminals like Trayvon roaming their neighborhood.

There would not even be a prosecution in this case except for black racist hysteria incited by the likes of Obama and Holder.

This case is total BS.

Cways, lily's and sonicfiller types belong to the 'feel good' school of Stupidity; if it feels good, do it.

That's why Cway is an Amateur Historical Revisionist, lily drinks like a fish while crying in her beer about how poor people get crushed by wealth monsters and sonicfiller wants to be somebody....anybody. They all feel good doing these things.

While their country goes to Hell in a hand-basket.

Oh stuff it. If Al-Awlaki was killed by Bush, you'd be calling him a hero.
The problem is giving one man the power to order the targeted assassination of an American citizen in a non-military operation.

If you can't understand that, then discussion is pointless.

What about the fact Martin illegally assaulted Zimmerman and was pounding his head on the ground? Isn't that attempted murder?
Why couldn't Zimmerman defend himself?
Because the attacker was black and wearing a hoodie. Simple stuff, really. Just ax Little Alvin Sharpton.

Not exactly.

Al-Awlaki's 16-year old son was targeted separately and killed in a separate attack, not as collateral damage in the father's assassination.

Yet, Obama would be first in line to argue against capital punishment for a 16-year old serial killer.
