Pelosi Unsure if Obama Can Disappear U.S. Citizens (or anyone else for that matter)

from Huffington Post

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is not sure whether the public should be told when the federal government kills an American citizen.

“Maybe. It just depends,” she said in an interview with The Huffington Post this week, when asked whether the administration should acknowledge when it targets a U.S. citizen in a drone strike…

… The Obama administration currently takes the position that it can essentially disappear U.S. citizens. It is never under any legal obligation to admit, even after the deed is done, that it has assassinated anyone.

Pelosi appeared conflicted over whether it was acceptable for the administration to simply disappear American citizens, a term that had previously been used as a verb only outside the United States.

  1. she needs to ask to be asked: what if its you or your relatives who are targeted?

  2. You can be sure that 50 years ago very few people in the U.S. would accept the government disappearing anyone ever. Either the “polls” are rigged or the people should be impeached.

    “I love the Godfather so much I would just let him kill me.” Right.

  3. These people have completly lost their minds. The have no inner sense of justice to guide them. What did they do? Did the sleep through their entire education? Or are they all on drugs?

    • A lot of them definitely are one or the other, or both. But I think quite a few are simply sociopaths that don’t give a shit about anything except serving their masters and getting their rewards. After all, it’s not like this stuff is going to target them, just all those unpeople that nobody (in circles of wealth and power) cares about…

  4. She is such an idiot.

  5. democrats shouldering the herculean task of actually making republicans LOOK GOOD!

  6. [...] Pelosi Unsure if Obama Can Disappear U.S. Citizens (or anyone else for that matter) (willyloman.wordpress.com) [...]

  7. Perhaps its time, and in the interest of honesty,and self reflection,we should adopt the practice of always prefacing the word “America”, or, “United States”,with “post constitutional”.
