what imminent danger do terrorists hiding out in yemen, pakistan and afghanistan create? why does not the white house release the legal reasoning supporting its decision to use drones to kill terrorist leaders who are not threatening imminent danger to the usa and the legal reasoning supporting the legality of allowing collateral deaths of innocents? again, we have obama hiding documents from the american people. i guess for many members of congress that is acceptable since the congress had done nothing to stop it in the past and is obviously doing nothing to stop it in the present.

they hide there and send killers here to try to kill you. We are killing them there so we don't have to here. It's pretty simple.

The "legal reasoning" is well known as this is well-settled law. You just don't like it.

We are very suspicious of the Usurpers plans for American citizens here. That's why we are questioning the legality. There has to be some reason as to why all the federal alphabet agencies are amassing millions (billions?) of rounds of hollow points/automatic weapons.
Agencies that are not tasked with using weapons, yet even Social Security has it's own SWAT Team? WHY? Why did dearleaer E O life time secret Sevice protection? There are many many questions. And why did Brennan hit the 16 year old son and his friends, an American born kid, yeah he was with Dad, but why wasn't he taken to Gitmo? How could this kid have the power to order terrorist attacks? I don't doubt he'd been brainswashed and would have joined the terror

ranks although I don't think Daddy would have allowed him to be one of he Kaboom suicide bombers, that is reserved for the peasants, not the leader/imams families.

You are paranoid, not just suspicious about your imagined "plan for Americans here". Which Americans? You seem to want to convince people that this president would put Americans in concentration camps, etc willy-nilly. That American-born Muslim was not innocent by his own declaration, he was as much a terrorist as the foreign born who have sworn to bring down the US. He was a treasonous traitor, a jihadist first, American last. He deserved what he got. You just don't like his color or his middle name. It would be different if he had been born Barry Jones, but then you would still not like his color or something else.

"Well steeled law" is the 5th amendment, which forbids this kind of killing.

‘Think about the mothers!”

That was the anguished cry of one of the protesters from Code Pink, the left-wing women’s group that four times interrupted John Brennan’s confirmation hearing last week. She was apparently referring to the mothers of such al-Qaeda leaders as Anwar al-Awlaki — killed by a drone strike that was ordered by President Obama and counseled by Brennan, Obama’s White House counterterrorism adviser and now his nominee for director of central intelligence.

If we do as the protester demanded, two possibilities occur: (1) Al-Awlaki’s mom shares her son’s ideology and is therefore proud that he died a...
