    President Obama’s Non Answer on Striking Citizens with Drones

    Yesterday, President Obama was finally subjected to a probing question about his policy regarding drone strikes on American citizens. The question, by Lee Doren during a Google + event, left little wiggle room, but he sure did wiggle. Spoiler Alert: There wasn’t really an answer.

    Can't even give a straight answer. Just a whole bunch of nonsense. I love the part about "working with Congress about oversight". Since when??? This guy will say anything anytime.

    More like he can't say he supports the rule of law and the 6th amendment. You know basic human rights. Or just say straight up "I would never drop a bomb on an american on our soil". For some reason that escapes him.

    Before his reelection I might guess that he feared admitting support for the Constitution might be a bit too Patriotic for some of his voter base. Why wouldn't a lame-duck President be willing to make these statements?

    I am assuming that you are in agreeance that the use of drones to kill civiliians (accidental or otherwise), no matter their nationality, is abhorrent? I do sometimes get concerned that the "one rule for us and one rule for them" ideology is far too prevalent in certain sections of US policy making.

    Aren't terrorists, radical Islamists, Islamic extremists, and those that support them, all civilians? They're not uniformed soldiers of their respective countries, at least not in any official capacity.

    Anyone who believes killing terrorist civilians before they randomly murder non-terrorist civilians is abhorrent should be strongly encouraged to go personally negotiate with the terrorists to get a better understanding of their beliefs.

    I see it for what it really is. A global assassination campaign that defies the rule of law, the constitution, international law, habaes corpus and the sovereignty of nations. That has murdered countless innocent people in nations that had nothing to do with 9-11. A war crime that is no different than a terrorist attack.

    That's certainly one way of looking at it.

    If we believe that words and actions of radical islamists and they really want to attack America any way necessary, then it could be considered "a global assassination campaign that defends the rule of law and the Constitution."

    International law is for countries that have the will and ability to oppose terrorism that originates from within their sovereign borders. Take care of your own internal problems and this won't be a problem for your country.

    Why would anyone be surprised about anything this guy says? Nothing questionable is his fault and everything good, even if he wasn't a part of it is his doing.
