Original Draft of Eric Holder's Letter to Rand Paul Surfaces (Satire)

This is Holder's original letter to Rand Paul which surfaced late last night. It appears to give more details into the interpretation of the Administration's drone policy, but was scrapped for obvious reasons...

I had to had this part in because some people were having a hard time distinguishing between reality and satire...isn't that one of the points?!

(This is satire! but these questions must be asked.)

1. Does the President have the authority to use any drone, weaponized or non-weaponized to surveil, kill, or in any other way target an American not engaged in actual combat on American soil, where “engaged in combat” is defined as armed opposition in a defensive or aggressive battle with the Federal government of the United States?

2. If the President and his Administration do claim this authority, they should publicize the methods they will use to determine which Americans are to be surveiled, killed, or in any other way targeted and more importantly, indicate what clause in the Constitution grants this authority to the Executive Branch?

Very good fake.......too good :)

Haha!

I was about to comment on your original comment! Is it really that difficult to tell this is a fake document I created? I'm starting to wonder if I'm doing more harm with this post than good. :/

More simply put...

...Does "walking to combat" or "talking about combat" imply "engaging in combat"?

Apparently...

We are both engaging in combat merely by thinking about it.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

This is total crap and proves

This is total crap and proves they give the president absolute power to kill Americans on US soil.

This Looks Fake

The text at the beginning clearly does not match the "part that was scrapped". Regardless, we all know they can label anyone an enemy combatant and take them out.

because it is fake...

Satire...

Gees...

I had to update the OP to make sure people understood it was satire! That's kind of frightening that we don't know!

I Saw This Title

and was really hoping it was going to be a drawing of a unicorn done with crayons

I think it's time

We nullified the federal CORPORATION DBA "the Government" circa 1776.

All in favor?

Did Ben Swann get a copy?

Did The Judge get a copy? Did Rachel Maddow? Rains on the parade better than anything on DP so far today.

Sorry for being a party pooper!

I was trying to point out the next logical questions that should also be pointed out! I support Rand! But these questions and this debate must continue!
