Beware: A President who justifies secret drone killings of Americans can justify anything
by Mike Adams
Tuesday, February 05, 2013
he U.S. Justice Department has just released a 16-page memo outlining its justification for why President Obama can order drone killings of American citizens. The paper is a wild tour of bizarro-land justifications from a government that no longer abides by any Constitutional limits or even principles of human rights.
As NBC News frighteningly reports:
A confidential Justice Department memo concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed to be “senior operational leaders” of al-Qaida or “an associated force” — even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S.
White House press secretary Jay Carney, the mouthpiece of tyranny and lawlessness in America today, added that “These strikes are legal, they are ethical and they are wise.” (FreeBeacon.com)
