Justice Dept Memo Expands Definition Of "Imminent" Threat To Justify Murder

The Justice Department drafted up a memo, which laid out the legality of extra-judicially murdering American Citizens...but one of the most shocking things within the text is the redefining of the word “imminent” by our government where it relates to a threat. Here is an excerpt from the white paper:

“The condition that an operational leader present an ‘imminent’ threat of violent attack against the United States does not require the United States to have clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons and interests will take place in the immediate future,” the memo states.

So no evidence is required for our government to decide that an American life should be extinguished, abroad, where we have no jurisdiction? Without trial? The document goes on to mention that if U.S. officials conclude that the subject has been associated “recently” (no definition of “recently” – is that a month, a year, or 20 years?) with a terrorist organization, they are considered an “imminent” threat. Just like with “recently,” there is no definition for “imminent,” because the memo also states that the government needs to recognize a “broader concept of imminence.” Basically taking away the entire meaning of the word and broadening it to mean that any action, real or imagined, that could happen during that citizen’s lifetime can be categorized as “imminent.”

Buh-ZING!

We have a winner!

and the sheeple reply in unison

"If it makes me safer I don't care. "

It makes us less safe. When are people going to wake up?

Another classic sheeple reply

"If you dont do anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about..."

So much for the right to assemble.

Oh well, if you want to discuss with other of like mind what you would like to see the world become, even peacefully, you are subject to assassination. I am sure Chris Kyle would have been a great "hero" for the job.

Are you sure this only applies abroad? Even if it does now, I'm

sure that restriction won't last long.

Keep your eyes and ears open and your powder dry folks. Your government intends to murder you. There's no longer any doubt now.
