Whom Can the President Kill?

Feb 6, 2013 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.newyorker.com

About a third of the way into in a Department of Justice white paper explaining why and when the President can kill American citizens, there is a citation that should give a reader pause. It comes in a section in which the author of the document, which was given to members of the Senate Intelligence and Judiciary committees last year—and obtained by Michael Isikoff, of NBC, on Monday—says that this power extends into every country in the world other than the United States, well beyond those where we are engaged in hostilities.

Let me get this straight...

In order to protect Americans from terrorists, Obama wants to kill Americans.

That sounds like the same logic as the way to reduce debt is to increase spending.

Like his mentors, Stalin and Hitler, Hussein Obama 'allegedly' has already removed several American citizens from among the living.

Hussein's black panther homeboys are his choice of dealing with his undesirable critics.

Drones should be stopped completely, massive number of unreported killing are taking place in 7 Islamic States, there where 900 innocent civilian death in Somalia alone. Who is responsible for the innocent death? John Brennan? or maybe Obama? Do the maths. People abuse power in favor of Israel. These sort of people have blood in their hands and will never succeed in their life. Obama go and make john Brennan your next Al-CIA chief, he and Junior GWB were the creators so called Anti-Terror, which means Anti-Christ

Hey dumbass, we are still there.

Look at the amount of US Forces stationed at the $1B embassy there, look at how many US Forces are on the border of Kuwait and Iraq, and then look at how many mercenaries (Blackwater aka XE) that are in Iraq.

Even more so is that you’re the only one who comes on here and tries to challenge the fact that Obama single-handedly found and killed Bin Laden…
Yeah man, that cat grabbed a rifle and killed Bin Laden alright. Got him good, lead the charge.

Idiot.

It is all a part of the reality show.

They consider themselves a new form of nobility. And while they live the high life on our dollar, they order Americans to their death while slaughtering innocent people abroad.

Watch when they go to a campaign event. No matter which party it is. The red carpet comes out, the bands start playing, they have military dressed up in goofy costumes saluting foreign dignitaries.

Self respect and personal dignity? We know not of these things.

See through the reality show.

Typical tea-bag moron.
Are there any Republicans with a real thought in their head?

And how many FOXLIES fans are with this short pig "Sol?"

President Obama won the war in Iraq and brought our troops home in time for Christmas as the US involvement in conflicts around the world decreased in his first term all while he protected this nation from terrorist attacks; that is why ‘We the People’ re-elected him in a landslide… and that photo is a look of concern when the helicopter went down…
At some point you’re going to have to come to grips with the fact that Osama bin Laden is dead because of the brilliant leadership of President Obama… that he was in the Situation Room knowing that he made the toughest decision that no other President would have made… and that it was celebrated in front of the White house as well as throughout every city and around the world when President Obama walked to that podium to announce that Bin Laden was killed “ON HIS ORDERS”.
Yep, Patti,

Obama kills terrorists by BEING a TERRORIST.

While we are stuck with having a Terrorist for President, only HALF of American citizens are guilty of voting him into office.

(and what did we WIN in Iraq?)

NoNoNoNoNo, Dickhead (YOU started the name-calling first). I'm sure your tiny little brainbox believes you're relevant, but it just ain't so.

Also: I don't WATCH Fox - most of them are COMMENTARY shows with VERY little news, and not worth my time. I've been INDEPENDENTLY praying-cancer for POTUS (piece of totally useless [expletive]) and his tribe for the last four-plus years now.

If the hurricane didn't kill you, I hope the blizzard does.
