    One could say it seems like hacks and partisans are neglecting their duty to the people in order to avoid political inconvenient issues that deserve addressing.

    That memo refers to the use of drones outside of US soil

    No, I just copied and pasted what was in the article. If you look, the title of the article on the actual page has a statement "White House admits it can't kill Americans with drones in US," while the link adds a question mark. More dishonesty from you it seems.

    Yes, you're right about the lack of question mark

    However, as I originally stated, the title is not supported by the content of your OP (or the content of the article). The article shows that Holder said we could kill americans with drones in the US

    And yet that still doesn't change tessa's point about the existence of an imminent or proven threat, nor the idea that assassinating American citizens in general without due process, whether on or off US soil, is problematic.

    EDIT:

    And like I said, take that up with RT. I did not write the article.

    It makes tessa's point dishonest because she said the memo justifies the use of drones against americans on american soil, which is just untrue
    EDIT:

    You wrote the OP, but I'm glad to see you admit that the US did not admit that it can't use drones against americans on american soil

    I did write the OP and it states "I must say that while this comes as a surprise, the words "can't" and "won't" are two different things. In addition to this, it states clearly 'on American soil' so Obama can still kill you if you leave the country."

    The "on American soil" was a quote from the letter sent to Rand Paul.

    EDIT: When did I ever say the US admitted that it could use drones on US soil?

    Your "so Obama can still kill you if you leave the country" clearly implies that he can't use drones to kill americans on american soil, which is untrue.

    And you can deny that was your intent, but you corroborate it here when you ask "When did I ever say the US admitted that it could use drones on US soil?"

    And if you're still clinging to notion that US can't use drones on american soil, then there's no hope of facts ever changing your mind because the article makes it clear that they can

    Actually, if you read the memo, you'll understand how what I said is correct. It would take higher level thinking skills, I know...but it's certainly possible.

    But I'm not here to enlighten those who refuse to enlighten themselves, so I resort to my last response.
