JUDGE NAPOLITANO: Can the president kill you?

Can the president kill an American simply because that person is dangerous and his arrest would be impractical? Can the president be judge, jury and executioner of an American in a foreign country because he thinks that would keep America safe? Can Congress authorize the president to do that?

Earlier this week, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. attempted to justify presidential killing in a speech at Northwestern University law school. In it, he recognized the requirement of the Fifth Amendment for due process. He argued that the president may substitute the traditionally understood due process - a public jury trial - with the president's own novel version of it; that would be a secret deliberation about killing. Without mentioning the name of the American the president recently ordered killed, Mr. Holder suggested that the president's careful consideration of the case of New Mexico-born Anwar al-Awlaki constituted a form of due process.

Bump: posted over there.

The War Powers Act, The Patriot Act, The NDAA, and HR 347 are all unconstitutional. The traitors who voted for these bills should be put on trial for treason as well as Obama who signed the NDAA and HR 347. There are so many corrupt people in our government that nothing will ever get fixed. The built-in checks and balances in the Constitution have been removed by enemies from within. All puppets have strings. The strings are the money trials, so following these trails will lead to the puppet-masters. A thorough housecleaning is in order, all except for the only honest elected official within our government, Ron Paul.

It would be nice

if someone with the means of info could name the names of the puppet masters from the top down..Then we could make playing cards with the leader being ace of spades on down..just like bush did with Iraq..We all know to make the real neccesary changes we gotta hit the money guys at the top, cause even if we get Ron Paul elected, these evil thugs will continue to lurk in the shadows
