Sometimes, in order to uphold Constitutional law, you must do things that are not popular, because it is the right thing to do. Before we assassinate other Americans, because they were put on a hit list. We need to examine the legality of it. Many are put on terrorist lists because they are suspected of being terrorists, without hard evidence. This flies in the face of the Constitution, where ALL Americans are presumed innocent, until found guilty by trial.Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) announced today that he will introduce legislation that would end the practice of targeting U.S. citizens for extrajudicial killing. Earlier this year, The Washington Post and The New York Times revealed that the Obama Administration was continuing the Bush-era policy of including U.S. citizens on lists of people to be assassinated without a trial. Kucinich has spoken out forcefully against revoking the basic constitutional rights of American citizens for simply being suspected of involvement with terrorism, and he is currently recruiting cosponsors for his bill.
Yes, this is a controversial bill, but this is one of those rare instances where I agree with Kucinich. Why? Because I am an American, who loves his country and what it stands for.
Finally, to some on the very far right, who claim that Obama is Hitler - If Obama keeps doing what he is doing, then you guys just might be right. It is certainly an unamerican thing to do, and does take us back to a nefarious time in Germany, when operations like this were the modus operandi.
