    Summary execution of citizens is the tool of fascism. Anyone who defends this power - which by the way the government granted itself without our permission - is an ignorant fool that needs to study more history.

    All of the BS "war crimes" nonsense you libs went on and on about,

    all of the Halliburton nonsense, "blood for oil etc...
    yep, invading the wrong country. fabricating a basis to invade. insisting the VP's former firm (which was still paying him) was the only candidate to perform as a contractor - and then given a no-bid, sole source contract used to defraud the government

    The nonsense over enhanced interogation.
    all it was was: torture. which was against international law and treaties we signed

    NOW a lib President has justified killing Americans without due process, and your all for it.
    an American who is also on the side of our nation's enemy is our nation's military enemy. someone we can take out like any other enemy soldier. that's all the memo was about
    you want to make it into something more because it is something Obama appropriated; therefor, to you and your cohort, you must be opposed to it. the same folks who were totally in dicknbush's corner when it came to torture. save your sanctimonious bull ****

    Fantastic. You folks wanted to give due process to the 9/11 conspirators.
    if they survived the battlefield they were either POWs or enemy conspirators entitled to trial. i take it you would have preferred them as POWs ... to be held until the 'war on terror' was officially ended. tell us when that will be

    Give enemy combatants Miranda Rights.
    only once they are captured and off the battle field. then they get the rights of anyone who goes to court. but you would prefer to wipe your ass with the Constitution

    Could you guys be any more hypocritical ?
    please point out the hypocrisy, as you and your ilk know it first hand
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    How far can the government go? What happens if they find that this situation within the continental US? Where could this go?
    The government will go as far as it wants to go. With nothing to constrain it or keep it in its place; this is the natural consequence. It's a Republic, if you can keep it. But most seem completely disinterested in keeping it.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    The dishonor is yours and the intellectual dishonesty is yours. It's funny how a Republican president can do no wrong to some righties yet, they cry and whine about a Dem president that is doing the same thing. Sad, really pathetically sad.
    Perhaps a few lessons in reading comprehension would be a worthwhile investment for you.

    Not once did I claim that Bush did no wrong nor did I claim that Obama did everything wrong - in fact, I said that using drones to assassinate terrorists in a war zone is appropriate. What you fail to see is the difference between that use of the technology and using it to assassinate an innocent American citizen, a child, in Yemen.

    And just to be clear, Bush never used drones in the manner they are used by Obama - perhaps he may have, if the technology had been as advanced at the time Bush served, but that's a hypothetical. While you won't believe it, I can assure you that if Bush had assassinated an innocent American child using a drone or any other means, I would have been equally appalled.

    Obama is Bush on freakin' steroids, and IMHO, is shredding the Constitution even worse than Bush did. This is a situation where Americans of all stripes, whether they are Liberal or Conservative, should be appalled. Our Constitution says that you can NOT take life, liberty, or property, without judicial review. Why is that in the Constitution? Because people sometimes get it wrong and, in their zest for "justice" end up going after innocent people occasionally. NO American should EVER be subjected to an automatic death penalty because the government decrees it. ALL Americans deserve their day in court. And if you don't agree with that, then you belong in North Korea, Iran, or some other place that doesn't have a Constitution of the United States of America.

    President Obama - Shame on you, and the horse you rode in on.

    Me too, just wondering how far a leap it is from "crazed Islamist terrorist born in the US" to "extremest right winger objecting to Obama policy".....

    No worries. If this is the worst thing that happens to me today it will be a great day.
