You assassinated the 5th Amendment? Over my Dead body! Step back - we decide who dies not YOU. Ron Paul and supporters utterly destroy the CIA's unconstitutional secret hit squad.
I want to be clear it seems Anwar al-Awlaki was a bad person; however, my biggest problem is the manner in which this was carried out, who determines if one including american citizens are terrorists? Who determines if one is guilty of treason? Who determines if one is guilty of a crime? It seems that one man, the president of the united states can make that call without any charges or trial or evidence that is presented to a grand jury. This is a very dangerous policy and we as americans should not take it lightly.
New member post! Please help me with this idea, to help Dr. Paul contexturalize the assault on due process and the Bill of Rights represented by the assassination of Anwar al-Awlaki:
I sent the letter below to Dr. Paul's congressional site, please refine or add to this idea and tweet, FB or email him with ideas, because the majority of comments on MSM articles out there seem to uphold Obama's high crime of the murder of a citizen without due process under the law...they don't understand the ramifications of this henious action! Here's my email:
Dr. Paul & Staff,
There was an article recently describing the terrorists as depressed and suidicidal which Dr Lankford says is the reason why they attack us. Obviously this flies in the face of wht Dr. Pauls states. He states that they attack because we are there and we are occupying their countries.
I have made over 50 videos, please visit my youtube channel to support my efforts. Thank you!
( a debate wish )
CNN --- Are you saying Ron Paul that we caused 9/11?
Ron Paul -- "No I am saying Bill Clinton caused 9/11. With his ten years of no fly zones, occupations, military bases, invasions of Bosnia, bombing Sudan, starving little children in Iraq! The first time they tried to take out the Twin Towers was with Bill Clinton in office. In 1998 I voted to impeach Clinton for that very reason. Then as soon as GW Bush came into office suddenly he had to deal with all that Blow-Back. Bill Clinton caused 9/11."
BAGHDAD – An anti-American cleric is urging his followers to stop attacking U.S. troops in Iraq so that their withdrawal from the country isn't slowed down, a call meant to ramp up pressure on Baghdad's political leaders who are considering asking some American forces to stay.
In a statement posted on his website, Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr told his militias to halt attacks against U.S. forces till the withdrawal is finished at the end of the year as required under a security agreement between Washington and Baghdad.
On 9/11's anniversary, firstly and most importantly, I mourn the American lives lost that day.
But I also wonder will history mourn the millions of other lives that were taken using it as a justification for war? Will we finally wake up and realize our overseas intervention was the CAUSE of 9/11 and that our wars make us LESS safe as we continue to spend American lives and money? Sad sad day.
As to what happen that day, I have no conspiracy theory. I just simply know I am being lied to.
I'm no writer, but here is my first unofficial blog post:
"The Death of Osama bin Laden"
It was a cold Sunday evening in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The usual suspects were there, CIA operatives, Pakistani Agents, and Osama Bin Laden...it was poker night. The undisclosed compound/Man Cave, had been equipped with two pool tables, entertainment center, wet bar, and stripper pole, it was the premier location of debauchery for the regions most dangerous and elite military officers.

Details of the U.S. government’s controversial rendition programme in which terrorist suspects were transported around the world have been exposed in court documents.
Revelations about the CIA flights, which resulted in the alleged torture of suspects in prisons outside America, and the extraordinary costs involved have come to the surface after one of the companies involved sued another over fees paid.

A few weeks away from the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Texas Rep. Ron Paul said that U.S. intervention in the Middle East is a main motivation behind terrorists actions, and that Islam is not a threat to the nation.
At a campaign stop in Winterset, one man asked Paul how terrorist groups would react if the U.S. removed its military presence in Middle Eastern nations, a move the candidate advocates.
“Which enemy are you worried that will attack our national security?” Paul asked.
Apparently suspected in a plot to subvert elections in 2006.
Nothing, nothing, nothing is more dangerous than a religious zealot, no matter what their underlying faith.
The other possibility, that this guy is some "spooked up mercenary" or special ops type is almost as ominous.
