Obama Kills his own citizens WITHOUT Any Due Process - just like the Militants.

Obama is a criminal terrorist and should be "Labeled" one. It's only "Fair."

Did Obama Just Assassinate A U.S. Citizen?- YES!-

Aulaqi Killing Raises Questions Over Presidential Powers

Published 1, September 30, 2011

The reported death of US Citizen Aulaqi from a U.S. air strike raises the long-standing question over President Obama’s insistence that he can unilaterally label a citizen as a terrorist and order his killing.

It is one of the policies (of many) that Obama continued from his predecessor, George W. Bush, and was one of the subjects of my column yesterday in the Los Angeles Times.

The question of the authority and the limitations of a president in ordering the killing of U.S. citizens.

Under the current policy, the President effectively promises to be careful in the selection of assassination targets. It is a decision left entirely to him and his designated subordinates. It runs contrary to constitutional guarantees protecting persons accused of crimes. The President can claim that the location of such individuals abroad is the key distinction since courts limit the application of constitutional protections and limitations outside of our border. Yet, we have already seen that the Justice Department argues that other rights can be similarly waived in the country like due process rights and the right to counsel for anyone accused being an enemy combatants. The enemy combatant policy and cases largely eradicated the domestic/foreign distinction used in the past.

Because of his high-visibility status, we were informed of al-Aulaqi’s killing. However, nothing in this policy requires a president to be informed of such assassinations and the congressional oversight committees are widely viewed as rubber stamps for intelligence operations. It is not simply a question of whether a president can order such a killing of a citizen but the circumstances under which such an order can be given. Obama put al-Aulaqi on a hit list many months ago. There is no process, however, to secure any judicial review or to satisfy any showing despite over a year of such targeting. These questions remain unanswered because the Obama Administration has been successful in blocking public interest lawsuits seeking judicial review of his assassination list.


Obama = Criminal/Militant

Didn't muslim HUSSEIN OBAMA say there is no longer any (muslim) terrorism in the world?

Didn't feminist douche bag Hillary say that all muslims are peacefull and tolerant and that America should convert to islam?

According to the Liberlal Handbook, all muslims and their conduct are politically correct.

Liberal rhetoric has always been self-serving.
