The "lawyers" seem to have missed the lecture on posse comitatus, they were probaably attending a lecture on marxism and how to BS people into believing it will work if the right people are in charge. That it took Rand Paul's 13 hour filibuster to get this commieclown and his lapdog to agree to what anyone with a brain and an ounce of patriotism already knew is very instructive...that mindset should not be running this nation. We fought WW2 to dispel such thoughts and the men who advocated them...

Unfortunately, guarantees by Holder, Obama, et al., aren't worth the paper they're written on.

In conversations with those opposed to the notion of drone attacks against U.S. citizens, on or away from American soil, I ask a question as a consistency test:

Is your opposition based on a blanket principle that no President should have such power, or is it a spurred by a mistrust of the current administration?

In many cases I get the first answer, so I know I am engaged with a libertarian mindset, which I always respect and often share. We should always take great pause before empowering government to take bold action unilaterally that could result in loss of life...
