    What the fuck! This is crazy. Drone wars are about to begin in the US?

    NBC reports:

    The memo itself: http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/i/msnbc/sections/news/020413_DOJ_White_Paper.pdf

    The fact that the liberal media is leaking something potentially impeachable for Obama makes it interesting.

    AlQ today, anyone else who doesn't approve of gov, tomorrow.

    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” :cheer:

    I'm not worried, the NRA says we are safe as long we have our 20 round clips and AR15s we should be able to handle anything the military can dish out.

    The scarred bunnies in this country (the overwhelming majority) gladly gave up most/all(?) of your rights and freedoms after 911 in the name of "defending freedom" and prosecuting the "war on terra".

    And it will NEVER be undone. Governments never give up newfound powers, especially ones that were given to them on a silver platter by the great unwashed masses of scared pussies.

    You fucking pussies asked for it and got it and anyone who tried to say no was branded a "traitor"....a "enemy"....a "commie".....a "lib'rul".....a "anti-american".....a "terrorist sympathizer".....blah-blah-blah, ect., ect., ect.

    So suck it! Your guv'mint is doing exactly what you asked it/begged it to do.

    By your dopey logic and standards George W. Bush should've been impeached a hundred times.

    "about to begin"?

    This is far from being something new that is about to begin.

    You might have to rethink about how you go about with defining "drones" and what exactly a "drone strike" might actually turn out to be.

    Remember, violating the Constitution is ok if 51% of the people dig your politics.

    We're not the ones who need to worry about the military. Historically they are more likely to be pointing their guns at Washington. The 20 rd clips are just insurance.

    Due process is officially dead. They can now just declare you to be a terrorist and blow you up with a drone. Make a mistake? Awe sorry, we thought he was a terrorist. The silence from the left is deafening.

    ""Anticipating domestic boom, colleges rev up drone piloting programs""

    By Isolde Raftery, NBC News
    Randal Franzen was 53, unemployed and nearly broke when his brother, a tool designer at Boeing, mentioned that pilots for remotely piloted aircraft – more commonly known as drones – were in high demand.
    Franzen, a former professional skier and trucking company owner who had flown planes as a hobby, started calling manufacturers and found three schools that offer bachelor’s degrees for would-be feet-on-the-ground fliers: Kansas State University, the University of North Dakota and the private Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Fla.
    He landed at Kansas State, where he maintained a 4.0 grade point average for four years and accumulated $60,000 in student loan debt before graduating in 2011. It was a gamble, but one that paid off with an offer “well into the six figures†as a flight operator for a military contractor in Afghanistan.

    So basically not just the president, but any "high level" government official can order the execution of an american on circumstantial dated evidence.

    I don't know if you'd consider me "the left," but I find everything associated with and that was born from the (misnamed) "Patriot Act" to be an outrageous, unconstitutional power grab by the executive branch...except it wasn't a grab; the fucking legislature just handed it over; despite having "secret courts" where legal warrants could be obtained, now it's left in the hands of the executive branch with no oversight.

    It's a fucking nightmare of our own making.

    thanks Congress! :duhme:

    Don't expect any drones in the crime ridden 'perfect voter' neighborhoods.
