According to a February 10th New York Times article by Mark Mazzetti and Eric Schmitt, the Obama administration is debating whether to authorize a lethal strike against an American citizen living in Pakistan.
The Crime committed by this person? Well, we really don’t know and, of course, if this person is killed by a drone strike authorized by Barack Obama we never will know, will we?
We’ll just have to put all our faith in Barack Obama and allow him to decide who lives and who dies.
Forgive me for putting this in such plain words, but what’s being “debated” is whether or not a human being, in this case a U.S. citizen, should be murdered in cold blood – no trial, no presentation of evidence, no conviction in a court of law – no nothing!
Nazis were hung at Nuremberg for this very thing, weren’t they?
