“Frankly, it’s offensive that we are sitting around pondering whether or not Obama has the authority to murder one U.S. citizen (a guy who was partying at the Pentagon not that long ago) after the piece of shit slaughtered 23 children on behalf of a brutal dictatorship in Yemen back in 2009. Where the f*ck is all the Adam Lanza outrage from the progressive left on that one?” me, today, just now
(just a quick note)
The Obama administration was recently forced to release their secret Murder Loophole Memo, crafted by David Barron, which supposedly gave President Peace Prize the authority to kill U.S. citizens (abroad? anywhere?) without due process of law… or at least it supposedly gave him enough cover to claim he “thought” he had the legal authority to do so.
(same BS as the Bush Torture is OK Memo only this one is from a “progressive” so that makes it okee dokee on the centrist left)
They had to release it so Mr. Barron could receive his pay-off, a seat on the bench as a Circuit Court judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. It should be noted that Mr. Barron’s wife, Juliette Kayyem, is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, was the Assistant Secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs in the United States Department of Homeland Security, served as an appointee to the National Commission on Terrorism chaired at the time by one L. Paul Bremer and served in the Department of Justice under Janet Reno.
Seems like this D.C. power couple has really hitched their little red wagon to that whole “terrorism” thing. You ever think about how many folks would be working at Burger King if the CIA backed “terrorists” didn’t exist? Not that there’s anything wrong with working at Burger King. At least those guys aren’t trying to justify murdering people (obvious fallacy in that argument aside).
There’s a lot wrong with this memo which is odd because suddenly all those congressional voices who claimed Obama didn’t have the authority to murder us in our sleep all of a sudden stood up and said “Oh.. well… there you have it. I guess I was wrong. Carry on President Drone Strike”
Lots to be said about self preservation I suppose. You can ask Paul Wellstone about that. Oh wait, no you can’t.
