    Of the scores of people dubbed terrorists and taken out by American military drone strikes, three men -- all killed in the fall of 2011 -- were U.S. citizens.
    And their lives illustrate the complexity of the issue, recently brought to light amid a newly discovered government memo that provides the legal reasoning behind drone strikes on Americans.

    Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan were killed by a missile strike in Yemen on Sept. 30, 2011, while al-Awlaki’s son, Abdulrahman, was killed in the country just weeks later.

    Since the attacks, family members have called the deaths unjust and sued the U.S. government, calling the killings unconstitutional.

    But the most controversial drone strike took place on Oct. 14, 2011, when 16-year-old Abdulrahman was killed by U.S. forces.

    Family of the Denver-born teenager say he had no ties to terrorist organizations and was unjustly targeted because of his father.
    Nassar al-Awlaki, grandfather of Abdulrahman and father to Anwar, said he tried to protect his grandson as Anwar al-Awlaki’s profile grew.
    In December, Nassar al-Awlaki told CNN, “In Anwar it was expected because he was under targeted killing, but how in the world they will go and kill Abdulrahman. Small boy, U.S. citizen from Denver, Colorado.”

    The Obama administration has remained mostly mum regarding Abdulrahman's death, and at times has struggled to explain it.....snip~

    American drone deaths highlight controversy - U.S. News

    16 years old! Team Obama must have thought the kid would come for revenge.....huh?
    Cmon now the kid was sitting outside a restaurant, eating, in Yemen.....then a Drone Strike took him out. Can't say it was an accident.

    Someone just leaked Obama's rules for assassinating U.S. Citizens

    http://reason.com/blog/2013/02/04/so...-rules-for-ass

    While the White House continues to deny that such memos exist, NBC is reporting that it has acquired the next best thing: A secretish 16-page white paper from the Department of Justice that was provided to select members of the Senate last June.

    Leaks from Obama are so frequent he should schedule a visit with a urologist.

    Yep, I get into debate's a fair amount with my hard left friends and they about burst a vein when I show them how Obama has not only embraced but has expanded the Bush Doctrine. I keep asking you were so outspoken and protested GW, where are you now when Obama is expanding it? If they respond it's only the same excuses the Bush supporters gave .....

    Reality, same asshole just a different mask

    I'm betting this "leak" was just another way for this corrupt Administration to get it's message out.

    Of course when they "leaked" about Obama being killed it led to the deaths of a lot of Seal Team 6 members.

    Guess when they killed that young American non-terrorist teen with a drone strike they let their fascism get a little too bold for now.
