President Obama Makes Statement On The Sequestration

Should Obama administration murder American citizen with drone strike?

There is a reason we have courts and constitutional protection that one will get a fair trial before being punished for the crime he/she may or may not have done. Killing a suspect without giving fair trail is taking away his/her constitutional rights.

The US government is now going through similar struggle – whether to use lethal drone strike to murder a US citizen located in an unidentified country which won’t co-operate with American Empire.

According to an AP report CIA has identified the ‘suspect’ but is waiting for an approval from the Justice Department before taking him down. The Pentagon, as expected, has already given the permission to murder the suspect instead of bringing him back home and try him here.

Last time a US citizen was murdered by a drone strike was Anwar al-Awlaki.

Should the US government start using drones to ‘murder’ US citizens without giving them fair trails?

  1. @Swapnil while we might disagree on many of our political beliefs, this is one of the reasons why I didn’t support Obama’s reelection. One could argue, theoretically, that Mitt Romney would have done more harm to the world if he were elected instead of Obama, But a country that chooses its politicians based on a “lesser of two evils” mentality, ends up with a country who’s values merely deteriorate at a slower rate, instead of a country who’s citizens values paradigms which, although politically unpopular, reinforce a more positive direction.

    This is why I supported candidates who were perhaps over-idealistic, such as Ron Paul and Jill Stein. Even though they might have been political underdogs, at least such candidates had the kind of message, principles, consistency, and dedication that I can support wholeheartedly.
