From our pals on the left, it appears as long as it is a Obama drone...no problem. Those pesky Americans won't have to worry about the Patriot Act or being water boarded, they just get dead.
**even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S.**
Justice Department memo reveals legal case for drone strikes on Americans
NBC News: 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.
The 16-page memo, a copy of which was obtained by NBC News, provides new details about the legal reasoning behind one of the Obama administration’s most secretive and controversial polices: its dramatically increased use of drone strikes against al-Qaida suspects abroad, including those aimed at American citizens, such as the September 2011 strike in Yemen that killed alleged al-Qaida operatives Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan. Both were U.S. citizens who had never been indicted by the U.S. government nor charged with any crimes.
The media is way too busy preparing their "Valentines Day" Love ya cards for Obama and half of the country is too busy with all their free goodies from the U S tax payers to care........If it was Bush or anybody with an "R" doing this you could bet on foaming at the mouth rage.
