Holder To Justify Killing Americans On Foreign Soil
By Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com | Mar. 5, 2012
Attorney General Eric Holder will today attempt to justify the Obama administration’s policy of state-sponsored assassination, as he prepares to give a speech explaining how the U.S. government can arbitrarily kill U.S. citizens on foreign soil.
“Holder plans to say in a major speech on Monday at Northwestern University law school in Chicago that lethal force is legal under a Sept. 18, 2001, joint congressional resolution,” reports the Associated Press.
The notion that the White House can target Americans for summary execution by merely claiming that they are associated with terrorism is chilling given the fact that Americans who engage in political activism or even banal behaviors have been characterized as potential terrorists by U.S. authorities.
The White House has asserted the right to carry out state-sponsored assassination anywhere in the world without having to provide any evidence or go through any legal process. The administration merely has to state that the target is a terrorist and it doesn’t matter whether they are an American citizen or not, as we saw in the case of American-born Anwar al-Awlaki and his son, who were both killed last year.
In December, Obama administration lawyers reaffirmed their backing for state sponsored assassination, claiming that “U.S. citizens are legitimate military targets” and do not have the right to any legal protection against being marked for summary execution.
During a CBS 60 Minutes interview in January, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta revealed that Obama himself personally approves the policy to kill American citizens suspected of terrorism without trial on a case by case basis.
“So it’s the requirement of the administration under the current legal understanding that the president has to make that declaration, not you?” Panetta was asked, to which he replied, “That is correct.”
The administration’s support for state-sponsored assassination without a shred of legal oversight puts into context the worthlessness of an Obama ‘policy directive’ last week that promised the White House would not indefinitely detain American citizens under the National Defense Authorization Act, which Obama signed on New Years Eve.
As we documented at the time, it was the administration itself which demanded the controversial detention without trial provisions of the NDAA be applied to American citizens.
The NDAA defines the entire planet, including America, as a “battlefield,” meaning Americans could also hypothetically be assassinated without any legal process on U.S. soil under the legal framework that has been codified under Obama.
The recent announcement that up to 30,000 drones will be in American skies within ten years, allied to the DHS plan to spend up to $50 million dollars on a spy system that has been used to hunt insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan for the purposes of “emergency and non-emergency incidents” within the United States, makes it clear that Americans are being targeted as terrorists at both home and abroad.
INFOWARS = HARDCORE UNPROVABLE CONSPIRACY THEORY BS.
ALEX JONES = GARBAGE
Come on, patriots. Get it through your thick skulls that Alex Jones and his subsidiaries are nothing but crap factories. Their stories can not be confirmed. For God's sake, wake the hell up and stop being idiots.
AND QUIT POSTING TINFOIL HAT WEARIN' DOUCHEBAGGERY.
I'm not giving any negative response to that.
GS, while I agree with you here as far as Alex Jones may be concerned, I think you could have addressed this more effectively.
Again, not a fan of Infowars and you know this yourself. But there are ounces of truth involved and it could all be used to our benefit.
No one here has all the answers to everything and anything we are about!!! It doesn't do any good, in my view, to go around and tear this and that to shreds. I say let the different mediums of content come together and converge on what will ultimately reveal itself to be the truth. From there people can make conclusions. Perceptions are NEVER absolute, even when it comes to the "truth" (not a moral relativist either).
Do I like Alex Jones and Infowars and related? NO, but I find it to be a waste of time telling everyone else how wrong they are for subscribing to that form of media. What's the point? People will believe what they want to believe at the end of the day, and NO ONE can change that.
BTW, as far as the drones are concerned, every major news media outlet seems to be reporting the same things on the issue.
If you discount that as conspiracy "tin foil hat wearing douchebaggery", then you would be discounting the mainstream media very similar to what ALEX JONES DOES.
Tis an ounce of truth in everything.
The only use I have heard for drones is border patrol operations. I haven't seen anything in the lamestream media that supports this idea.
Here's one source, and it's liberal: http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/02/07/10344710-pilots-worry-...
"Airline pilots and privacy rights activists are fretting over a provision of the FAA funding bill passed by Congress that would open up the U.S. skies to drones for law enforcement and other domestic use."
El Paso County (Colorado Springs) passed a resolution against NDAA. this is the first in the country! The Sheriff signed off on it as well. He and Peggy Littleton, the brave County Commissioner who took this to a vote, attended Sheriff Mack's Sheriff's convention in Vegas. I was able to get them invitations, and they both spoke there. After that, Fremont County did the same, (Canon City), and now Weld County (Greeley). I believe CO leads the country in this. Amazing!!
That is great Mara!! Every county/state should be doing this.
Yes, Stewart Rhodes is spearheading this effort! I informed him about this passage, and he has talked about it a lot.
Very good news Mara!
I am marking these counties on my Colorado State Strategic Map.
Hopefully I can eventually mark them all!
