Pelosi: Obama can keep drone strikes against Americans a secret


Nothing to think about. No worries.  This is even more reason I am looking forward to the confirmation of Brennan. He will be more than happy to follow the Emperor’s orders.

Brennan Sidesteps Query on Drone Kills in U.S.

In written answers to Senate Intelligence Committee questions released Friday, CIA director nominee John Brennan would not say whether the U.S. could conduct drone strikes inside the United States — only that it did not intend to do so. Roll Call

FBI Director: I have to check to see if Obama can kill citizens on U.S. soil

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder’s “three criteria” for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S.
Pressed by House lawmakers about a recent speech in which Holder described the legal justification for assassination, Mueller, who was attending a hearing on his agency’s budget, did not say without qualification that the three criteria could not be applied inside the U.S.
“I have to go back. Uh, I’m not certain whether that was addressed or not,” Mueller said when asked by Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., about a distinction between domestic and foreign targeting. Graves followed up asking whether “from a historical perspective,” the federal government has “the ability to kill a U.S. citizen on United States soil or just overseas.”
“I’m going to defer

 

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., believes that President Obama doesn’t necessarily have to announce that an American citizen suspected of terrorism has been killed in a drone strike.

“Maybe. It just depends,” Pelosi replied when The Huffington Post asked her if “the administration should acknowledge when it targets a U.S. citizen in a drone strike.” When Anwar al-Awlaki was killed in a drone strike, President Obama announced the killing within hours. “People just want to be protected,” Pelosi also said. “And I saw that when we were fighting them on surveillance, the domestic surveillance. Would you care to explain Pelosi?  People just want to be protected: ‘You go out there and do it. I’ll criticize you, but I want to be protected.’”

Somehow we never get around to talking about the 16 year son of al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen killed at a restaurant one week after killing his father.

    The fact that he even has to go back and check about this is all we need to know about this. There is no doubt in my mind that drones will be used in the US to take out people who are considered a threat. And we all know who Obama sees as a threat…..

    Actually queen P is smart in her treachery and conniving – dumb like a black widow.
    Some think it was slip of tongue with BO stating that he’s not an Emperor – if he were things would go smoother. We know he meant it just that way, he’s pushing ‘to be’. And his indoctrinated pantheist “followers” are ready to back him as such. Today Drudge R. shows him carrying his play toys into Air Force One – brought to mind how he’s carrying the bags of the UN-Progressives like a slave boy, and one of his perks is to have some power with the drone joy-stick. Also his bosses are allowing him a treat – Reggie L., for being such a good ‘boy.’ Pretty sickening, but that’s the sin nature, Christ died for – to free us all from the chains of inequity – rose again, for our justification and right standing before a Loving and Just God! The only One worth trusting and believing. A Holy God gives ‘whosoever’ a Way out of the sickness if we choose/want it – better than mankind’s alternative!

    A very slipperry slope that only conservatives seem to care about. Today it is those affiliated with al Qaeda. Tomorrow it will be anyone thought to be a terrorist. And, then it will be anyone thought to be a threat to the “government”. That latter ctagorie includes you and I. And, some day it will include leftist, as well. Pelosi is too stupid for words.
