The White House's decision to release its legal reasoning for the killing of US citizens by armed drones is likely defuse some of the tension at John Brennan's confirmation hearing as CIA director.

If W were still in office, this forum would
go on in perpetuity.
As it is, it will get half a comment from Pat
on Obama's blackness and ten comments on Pat's
retarded non-military service.
Nothing this Man does warrants questioning from
anyone. He is our King and Messiah.
Everyone brace themselves for a repeal of the
22nd amendment.
We are getting force-fed European socialism which
is allowing the infiltration of Radical Islam.
Enjoy!

The "Americans" Obama targeted were a single mom bringing a car full of puppies to a shelter, a Catholic choir on their way to dedicate a homeless sheltet in Oregon, and George Clooney's 15 year old girlfriend.

Just kidding. Obama whacked a bunch of sand-knickers so nobody cares.

Obama can't even catch the terrorists in Benghazi but he's all Gung Ho about killing Americans. It just doesn't add up.

I bet you all wouldn't be so happy about these drone strikes if they were hitting the US and killing you and your children.

There is no end to how lawless these Democrats have become. It is worse then a 3rd word country, it is Chicago all over America, totally corrupt. Legalizing drugs, opening the border to the whole world. And supposedly we elected them.

Nelson Mandela was also called terrorist Number one,by White south africans.Finally,Mandela also became the first Black Presidents.

When thousands of women and children got killed in North waziristan,the northern border of Pakistan through US drone attacks,UN and world was silent.
Subsequently,when primary school children in Conneticut,USA,got massacred,everyone was sad including Pakistan.
Are the Pakistani Kids Terrorist?

Imagine,a kid getting killed by a US drone and how victims Parents feel? Put yourselves in the same situation.
Obviously victims parents too will end up joining the rebels and hence through the US action,terrorism spreads and eventually none in the world will be safe.

BEST WAY TO FIGHT A TERRORRIST IS HEAD ON,LIKE HOW SRI LANKAN FORCES WIPED OUT THE TAMIL TERRORIST HEAD ON.

Many people will agree with him. and the tyranny with its tentacles will continue to spread. Like anything else, once the murders start it is easier after to add more reasons to do it. Awwwwwww, doesn't the president have such a cute smile. He is certainly lovable. When you love evil, then you are corrupted yourself. I never would have thought this was going to happen back in my youth. But it is moving fast now. Neighbor will kill neighbor....neighbor will rat out neighbor...

Taking into account the number of mass murders and unpatriotic rhetoric and actions by these unpatriotic right-wing tea-baggers I am all for President Obama being able to send a Drone to take out these enemies of the State. ‘We the People’ re-elected President Obama in a landslide so that he could use his mandate to follow through on whatever he sees fit to do to continue to protect this nation from terrorist and kill any bastard (right-wing nut or not) just like how he killed Osama bin Laden.

You will get your wish. And you will burn in hell after you turn America into the same. You must have really been ph uked with in life to be this twisted. Most of us have taken crap to varying degrees. May you find the courage to see through evil and what is right and wrong even if it means you don't shine as bright on this planet. That is the true measure of a man. One that is not noticed or known to others. It hurts. Little failures or personal ones are one thing. Condemning a whole people to live an abysmal life is another. Please don't give in so easily. For your attitude has infected others. Our wealth is declining and those same will and are adjust to collect from government to keep this downturn spinning. Its human nature. And finally, the men who end up controlling those drones after obama leaves office will be who you despise by your rants. Choose freedom over tyranny. There is so little time left.

STOP for one minute and see what is going to happen
in the future. Do you really think this first
step is the end of what is in our future? If
so, keep backing him in all he is doing, because
the dems., are going to allow it all....Guess,,,,
Bush and the T-party will still be taking the
blame when all this ,"GETS out of HAND" and affect
even YOU. Welcome to a country we never KNEW or
even thought we would allow to happen.
Its not just the government that has gone nuts its the people who are FOR everything he wants to do.
DUMMY DOWN AMERICA has finally happened just
as the Rusians predicted years ago....Then we will be "ripe for the taking"......Think it won't happen,,,,Your not capable of thinking. Hoping its NOT you call.

Yes, but there are people who will look the other way. And they will have nothing to worry about.
