Remember when the left went nuts because George Bush allowed our spies to monitor telephone calls made to suspected terrorists outside this country?
Can you image what would happen if Bush had said U.S. citizens could be assassinated just because they were suspected of being terrorists?
The New York Times would be spinning its presses putting out special editions. CNN would be broadcasting 24/7 on this story alone (sort of like the camera image of the oil spill).
President Obama is doing it, and no one really cares. The ACLU has issued a mild protest.
Yep. Actual terrorists who kill Americans? Put them on trial. Suspected terrorists who may or may not kill Americans, but are Americans? Shoot them.
One reason the telephone surveillance (which is constitutional, unlike assassination) was needed was that the media had made it easier for terrorists by publishing the information that we were monitoring their cell phone calls. It almost allowed us to catch Osama bin Laden. But the media chose to exercise its constitutional rights, rather than protect Americans.
Why is the assassination of U.S. citizens needed? Who is next? Tea Party members that the leftists deem to be "racists"?
