Beware: A President who justifies secret drone killings of Americans can justify anything

 

We have crossed yet another threshold into tyranny in America. President Obama’s legal team in the DOJ has just issued a memo that justifies the drone killings of American citizens.

This is done based on nothing but the opinioned accusation that the person being targeted may be “associated” with a terrorist organization.

No evidence need be presented. No trial. No due process. No legal defense, nothing.

We should all be alarmed over this, because if a President would justify secret drone killings of US citizens completely outside of law, there is NOTHING he cannot justify.
