Al-Harithi was traveling with Kamal Derwish (Ahmed Hijazi), a US citizen, and Derwish's killing was the first known case of the U.S. government killing a U.S. citizen during the "War on Terror".

So it's ok for Bush to kill American citizens, but not Obama??
You really are stupid.
Were any in the USA, no. end of game. It doesn't matter which president breaks or tries to bend the constitution, it is wrong. It is why we are failing.

Reality hits hard to Teabaggers like you;
'The President is tobacco-free': Obama's doctor confirms the 'Smoker-in-Chief' has quit
With the economy in tatters and his opponents baying for blood, it's a stressful time for President Obama.
But the president does have one achievement he can be proud of- he has given up smoking, and now his doctor has confirmed it.
The results of Obama's second medical examination since taking office, were released by the White House today, and the President was declared 'tobacco free'.
During the debt crisis in August this year the President was photographed in the Oval Office with what appeared to be Nicorette gum on his desk.
The latest results declare the president in 'excellent health and 'fit at 50'.
Perhaps as a result of giving up smoking the President has gained a little weight, and now weighs 181.3 lb, up from 179.9 lb last year.
His cholesterol has also come down since his last examination. When he first took office it jumped to 209. Then White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said it might have something to do with having a dedicated White House pastry chef. It's now back at 193.

Okay, sonic, you were right. I went back and you did provide the government website. My bad.
The specifics of those cuts indicated on a line graph, however, were still nowhere to be found.
The sad truth is Obama is not interested in cutting spending frugally. He actually wants to spend more than he cuts while raising taxes yet again.
he said, she said, you said.

your sad truth is worth nothing. unless you're a FOX talking head who gets paid for their OPINION.

Last night’s epic talking filibuster by Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, joined by senators Republican and Democrat (well, one Democrat), brought the GOP caucus, however briefly, around to a civil libertarian position scarcely imaginable for those of us who remember the George W. Bush years.

pretty much the right wing media take.....

As for the hypothetical of drone attacks on American citizens on our soil, we can’t help the sneaking suspicion that it is much ado. In the letter to Paul that became the occasion for the filibuster, Holder reserved the administration’s right to launch an attack in the circumstance of a Pearl Harbor or 9/11. Of course, President Bush did in fact authorize the downing of hijacked planes by military aircraft on September 11. If we were to again face a similarly imminent threat, even Rand Paul wouldn’t object to responding with all appropriate force at our disposal, presumably even if it included a drone (suddenly the world’s most feared weapon).

On the other hand, Holder told Senator Ted Cruz at a Judiciary Committee hearing — after persistent questioning — that attacking on our soil an American citizen who is an enemy combatant in the absence of such a threat would be unconstitutional. We are not sure he is right about that. It would be possible to craft extreme scenarios — involving invasions, domestic insurrections, or other outlandish circumstances — in which such an attack would pass muster. But we would be testing the boundaries of the plausible, and of the Constitution. It is true that an enemy combatant who is an American citizen is still an enemy combatant and can be treated as such, but the rules are different here on our soil, where our laws apply, as opposed to the badlands of Yemen, where they don’t. As a practical matter, there are plenty of armed domestic forces here — the FBI, heck even the Social Security Administration — who may detain a terrorist and even use lethal force if necessary without anyone needing to ask the air force to rain down Hellfire missiles.

We suspect the day an administration starts killing Americans with drones at cafes — to borrow one of Rand Paul’s hypotheticals — is the day impeachment proceedings begin. If Congress is worried, though, there is a simple expedient. As Andy McCarthy has written,“Nothing prevents Congress from amending the AUMF to provide explicit protections for Americans suspected of colluding with this unique enemy. Congress could, for example, instruct that in the absence of an attack or a truly imminent threat, the president is not authorized to use lethal force in the United States against Americans suspected of being enemy combatants. Congress could also define what it means by ‘imminent.’”

The Rand Paul filibuster was great entertainment and will probably mark a new stage in his emergence as a national figure. We salute his brio, even if we suspect he is ultimately fighting a phantom menace.

Why are Federal Government Agencies purchasing hollow point ammunition?

Bing It: federal government buying hollow point bullets.

WHY?

Do liberals have ANY answers to ANY of the questions that have been asked?

While at the same time stongly refute < without fact > when given factual and logical answers.

People weren't real clever back in olden times Flack__kinda like you aren't presently.

Women, in some states, had only begun to vote__alcoholic beverages were illegal, but more importantly the US was not really connected by much beyond railroads and the newspapers/journals that moved along those.

Maybe you were born 70 years too late buddy__sounds like you'd have loved the depression era when three fourths of the US citizens were also illiterate.

I believe its to limit the Supply to public since Government Contracts have to be filled first before the selling to the public and its another way of applying Keynesian economics too.

The Great Ammunition Myth

The government is not planning a violent putdown of civil unrest

The appeal of this story is obvious, and that some citizens keep track of such things shows an admirable vigilance. But while a healthy suspicion of government serves these United States better than critics presume, facts remain the stubborn things that they always have been, and skepticism is no virtue at all when it proves impervious to reason. Those who are vexed that the state is stocking up on ammunition — and troubled by fears that this might be a step toward D.C.’s assault on the citizens for whom it works — can relax for now. Whatever the federal government has become, it is not yet plotting violence against the people.
