Obama Legal Vultures say Citizens can be targeted for killing if they are at war with US government.
In conjunction with the post below, todays offering from the Regime is a statement from Obama’s “National Security lawyers” that U.S. Citizens are legit military targets if they are at war with the country:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Top national security lawyers in the Obama administration say U.S. citizens are legitimate military targets when they take up arms with al-Qaida….
….Johnson said only the executive branch, not the courts, are equipped to make decisions about who qualifies as an enemy.
I have no problem with our armed forces taking out any American Muslim engaged in combat against them overseas. They are, what we at one time would call traitors – and deserving of the consequences they earn by going to war against us and our troops while allying themselves with the Jihadist enemy.
Two disturbing things to note:
1 – Obama wanted Jihad terrorists to be tried in U.S. Courts at taxpayer expense and given a trial – even though they are NOT U.S. Citizens. Obama even wanted 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed to have a public trial in NYC. But Obama now wants the military to be used to kill American Citizens ANYWHERE on his orders?? Anyone slightly bothered by this? Anyone see what is being set-up against us by this regime?
2 – Given his regimes continuous efforts to refer to TEA Party Conservatives as ‘Terrorists”, it is NOT a stretch to see that this chess piece being moved into place is being put there for use AGAINST ANYONE OBAMA DECLARES AN ENEMY.
I will again refer to the quote from the official of the Obama Regime: “only the executive branch, not the courts, are equipped to make decisions about who qualifies as an enemy”
Let that sink in. They assert ONLY Obama, not the courts, not Congress – are ‘equipped’ to make decisions about who qualifies as an enemy.
Wrong. The Constitution grants the Executive authority to act as Commander In Chief to wage war, they do not give him the authority to DECLARE who is an enemy to wage war. Only Congress has that power, and Congress can defund any action the Executive is waging should they choose. But they won’t. More than half are allied with the Marxists and the rest are spineless cowards hoping to get payola crumbs as they ride the coattails of a despotic regime.
I see a pattern of set-up here. One all genocidal and maniacal regimes end up engaging in – the war and extermination of a tyrant’s own people who he considers an enemy, and that piece has just been put on the board for that exact intended purpose.
This regime has blatantly said, the Dictator-In-Chief has the power to decide who is an enemy, and can order their death at his whim. Without arrest, trial or recourse.
So in two days we have the establishment AS POLICY OF THE RULING CLASS REGIME, that American citizens can be detained indefinitely without trial, and/or killed by military forces on decree of the Executive of who he deems is an enemy.
Welcome to Amerika, Soviet style.
It’s what the Hope and Change was really all about.
