This is not a tinfoil hat conspiracy issue. A letter signed by 11 U.S. Senators arrived at the White House today, addressed to President Obama, questioning his administration on legal document justifying the use of unmanned drones against American citizens suspected of being connected with alleged terrorist activities. When one remember how Obama's Department of Homeland Security under Secretary Janet Napolitano declared veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan high risks of becoming domestic terrorists and the illegal detainment of Marine veteran Brandon J. Raub for having posted on facebook in a fantasy online game calls for overthrowing the government in a fantasy role-playing game that was misunderstood out of context, one can see a policy allowing any administration, let alone one under the Obama regime, is more than fairly open for legitimate question by citizens and our elected representatives.
National Conservative Examiner Anthony Martin described the issues this way in a story on Examiner.com, “At issue is a statement released by the Justice Department Monday stating that it has received "secret legal opinions" that justify its belief that the government can kill citizens with drones in the ongoing war on terror. The statement was released in the context of the fight against al Qaeda and Americans who may side with terrorists.”
Just think about this for a minute. The notion is that the administration, unilaterally and without review or checks and balances from any other branches or agencies of government, can authorize the used of unmanned drones to kill American citizens that it (the administration) places on a list of those involved with or connected with terrorist activities or groups or operations related to such. Many believe this regime under the very political president, Barack Obama, is more likely to declare domestic political enemies as “terrorists” than actual al Qaeda operatives. Napolitano, at Homeland Security, has already done so.
Does a free society really want to give this kind of power to the government, perhaps the president alone, to make a decision to kill American citizens? Do we want to give this current administration, let alone any other that might be elected in the future via totally honest election or stolen votes, this kind of authority? Consider how much this regime under Barack Obama had abused the authority he has. The Supreme Court just smacked him down for illegally appointed members to the National Labor Relations Board without the Constitutionally required Advice and Consent of the U.S. Senate.
There is every reason to question the president on this issue. Now it's time for someone in Congress to demand this policy be withdrawn, or otherwise write an article of impeachment to be submitted to the House Judiciary Committee.
