Are you f---ing kidding me? Behind closed doors, the Marxist President has his "people" justifying drone strikes on American citizens.

The Obama Administration says it is OK to attack Americans? Really?

Justice Department memo reveals legal case for drone strikes on Americans

A confidential Justice Department memo concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed to be “senior operational leaders” of al-Qaida or “an associated force”-- even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S.

The 16-page memo, a copy of which was obtained by NBC News, provides new details about the legal reasoning behind one of the Obama administration’s most secretive and controversial polices: its dramatically increased use of drone strikes against al-Qaida suspects abroad, including those aimed at American citizens, such as the September 2011 strike in Yemen that killed alleged al-Qaida operatives Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan. Both were U.S. citizens who had never been indicted by the U.S. government nor charged with any crimes.

The secrecy surrounding such strikes is fast emerging as a central issue in this week’s hearing of White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan, a key architect of the drone campaign, to be CIA director. Brennan was the first administration official to publicly acknowledge drone strikes in a speech last year, calling them “consistent with the inherent right of self-defense.” In a separate talk at the Northwestern University Law School in March, Attorney General Eric Holder specifically endorsed the constitutionality of targeted killings of Americans, saying they could be justified if government officials determine the target poses “an imminent threat of violent attack.”

So much for transparent government. So Obama is carrying on with yet another policy formed by his predecessors. Preemptive attacks of American citizens without any due process. And he is carrying it to a new level. With Bush it was "imprison them with no legal counsel indefinitely" because we "think" they might be terrorists. Now it's just shoot first and don't even bother asking questions.
Does anyone see an emerging pattern here within our "intelligence" community. Maybe even something that supersedes the oval office?

Yeah, it is OK for undocumented immigrants to break the law for slew and not be punished, but someone who hasn't broken any laws can be killed according to the slewpid one. I wonder how that swiss cheese brain of his allows him to keep on typing.

cant had a great point in an earlier comment. These are American citizens who have not even been charged with anything. Bush did lock them you under the guise of Homeland Security. That was wrong.

This takes it to a whole new level.
