Droning Out Freedom (CliffsNotes On DOJ White Paper)

In all the discussions I have missed seeing one thing, are the drone flights to kill in other countries an illegal act of war on the part of the USA, if they are carried out without authorization from the country where the attack takes place? This is not meant as an indictment on the killing of those who deserve it (even former US citizens who have taken up arms against their country and thus renounced their citizenship). Under the Geneva Conventions most of the combatants (terrorists) are deemed to be illegal combatants as they do not wear uniforms or insignia, as well as a few other minimum criteria to be legal warriors.

Yes, these can be considered an act of war. The bin laden raid falls into this category.

Can you hear the humming of a lawnmower in the sky? It is a government drone. Your mission is to prevent this unmanned aircraft from droning out your freedom.

Last week, NBC News turned the White House upside-down by revealing a confidential 16-page Department of Justice white paper titled “Lawfulness of a Lethal Operation Directed Against a U.S. Citizen Who is a Senior Operational Leader of Al-Qa’ida or An Associated Force.” (A better title: “Justification for Stripping U.S. Citizens of their Natural Rights and Crowning the President King.”)

I read this white paper and I encourage you to read it...
