Ah, a year ago so many were happy with the departure of George Bush it meant his policies which violated the Constitution would end now that we had former constitutional professor Barack Obama in the presidency. Alas, the best laid hopes of humans are soon undone once an individual enters the halls of power. Dennis Blair, director of national intelligence told the media he has permission from the Boss himself to take direct action against American citizens who are engaged in possible terrorism activities. “We take direct action against terrorists in the intelligence community. If we think that direct action will involve killing an American, we get specific permission to do that” from higher authority. Of course, Blair assured one and all that killing Americans is not a decision one would rush to do unless there was evidence they were prepared to take action.
Of course, he never defined the meaning of “action,” although he said speaking ordinarily would not be an example of action. How can a former professor of constitutional law agree to murder of American citizens who have never been tried and convicted? Could someone explain to me why FOX News constantly insists Obama is “weak on terrorism?”
