Default Re: Obama Administration's dangerous memo on drones released

“If this is someone who has taken up affiliation with an organization attacking the United States, I don’t think it matters whether they’re a citizen — they seem to me an enemy combatant whom the president can respond to,” he said. “I think this is not a hard case.”

“We should be concerned when the White House is acting as judge, jury and executioner,” she said. “And there’s no one outside of the White House who has real oversight over that process. What’s put forward here is there’s no role for the courts, not even after the fact.”

I dont see how the white house figures it can just decide on its own who is and who isnt a terrorist without the proper due process that Americans are entitled to.

I also wonder why it took so long for the media to begin to focus on this issue.
