Feb 9, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Reuters

During a fresh round of debate this week over President Barack Obama's claim that he can unilaterally order lethal strikes by unmanned aircraft against U.S. citizens, some lawmakers proposed a middle ground: a special federal "drone court" that would approve suspected militants for targeting.

“Obama tells the right to...”

shhhh... STFU, you lost...

Maybe I’m missing something but if the last guy to occupy the White House had the worst terrorist attack on American soil happen on his watch and then drain the treasury of billions as he implemented a failed strategy in Afghanistan, and then lied this nation into a war in Iraq with another failed strategy…
And then now we have a brilliant President who change all those failed policies and strategies and there hasn’t been a single successful terrorist attack on American soil… Osama bin Laden is dead and Al Qaeda has been decimated, why is there anyone even questioning this President?
‘We the People’ just a few months ago landslided him for another 4 years with a mandate that says we agree with everything that he has done over the previous 4 years… so please, proceed.

The liberals were so worried about the rights of terrorists who were captured and now have no problem assassinating US citizens on the spot.

Obama was successful at killing Americans in Benghazi. He must like the blood lust he got out of Benghazi and his hate for Americans must run very deep. He will kill them where he can get away with it every time.

Compromising on the killing of American citizens by drones? Compromising on whether it's OK to take out civilians who may or may not be "terrorists" or combatants of any kind?

No thanks. The President should not have this power, period. Drone strikes are evil.

I suppose it was only a matter of time before a NUTJOB like you claimed that Obama, rather than Muslim terrorists, killed those Americans in Benghazi.

Suffice to say that you're a liar AND a traitor. Shoot yourself.

I agree, and with Obama in office and as many LIES as he has told I do not trust him or his methods.

Why do you think Obama is stockpilling ammunition. He will keep pushing till the walls break. He knows most the government people will side with him for protection.
