Guest Post: In Just The Last Week In The Land Of The Free…
Last Week In The Land Of The Free
It’s a pretty sad state of affairs in the Land of the Free when they have to pass a law making it illegal for the government to assassinate its own citizens.
Yet that’s exactly what’s happening.
Late last week, US Senator Ted Cruz introduced Senate bill S.505, “A bill to prohibit the use of drones to kill citizens of the United States within the United States.”
More than likely, this bill isn’t going to go anywhere. It’ll get shuffled around to various committees and be largely forgotten. But the fact that it was introduced shows just how far things have fallen in the US.
Again, do they really have to create a law to prevent the government from killing its own people?
Curiously, it’s interesting that this particular legislation stops at outlawing the assassination of US citizens on US soil… as if the Griswolds on their European vacation are acceptable targets…
Or that the bill specifically prohibits using drones to kill US citizens… but nothing else.
This is really amazing. But it’s just the tip of the iceberg.
