A Washington Post article reports that U.S. President Barack Obama has embraced the policy of authorizing the killing of U.S. citizens involved in terrorist activities overseas.
Chip Pitts, president of the Bill of Rights Defence Committee, has revealed: "...the Obama administration's even greater reliance on targeted extra-judicial killing - including of U.S. citizens - is a tragic legal, moral, and practical mistake."
"Even for those who accept the legitimacy of the death penalty, this further undermines the rule of law that is our best weapon in the fight against true terrorists, while completely subverting due process and constitutional rights of U.S. citizens," he said.
Ben Wizner, staff attorney with the ACLU National Security Project, said, "It is alarming to hear that the Obama administration is asserting that the President can authorize the assassination of Americans abroad, even if they are far from any battlefield and may have never taken up arms against the U।S., but have only been deemed to constitute an unspecified 'threat.'"

A little after 1 pm ET Monday news came out that U.S. House Representative John Murtha had died. He was 77 years old and had served in Congress for many, many years.
Out of respect for the dead, media people everywhere, including Fox News, will pull their punches and focus on the Democrat's more respectable points. That real fact is many people will openly celebrate Murtha's passing.
John Murtha had trouble with ADSCAM, campaign funding and was far and away considered the "King of Pork" for the wide variety of ways he gulped down millions of dollars in taxpayer money out of Washington. Most recently Murtha was again under review for lining the pockets of many family members and friends.
Murtha was also joined at the hip with Nancy Pelosi, in my opinion a certifiable nut case who reigns in the House.
Americans are far better off now that John Murtha is gone. This would be a great time for a number of candidates to come out of the woodwork and run for the seat he held. Does Pennsylvania have a Scott Brown handy? I hope so.
