They seem to find the concern about Americans on American soil laughable to them.
Nobody disagrees about what to do with an imminent threat. They seem to think it’s just fine to have top secret councils where Obama decides to kill an American on American soil without a warrant signed off by a court and a jury trial if he should so want it. That the president can order a kill without the constitutionally required warrant and trial by jury.
There is NOTHING in the Constitution that permits such arbitrary and secret kill lists.
Lindsey Graham even burned the dictionary by saying you can be an “imminent threat” just by belonging to an organization. He is also saying it’s never going to happen in the United States.
HOW IN THE WORLD DOES HE KNOW ANYWAY? Besides which it’s a violation of the Constitution. Trusting ANY president with that kind of entitlement is a slippery slope.
What a bunch of gullible politicians!
We’re talking about an administration that says it’s unconstitutional to torture anybody anywhere, but it’s okay to kill them where they stand.
God help us all.
