Congressman Ron Paul is worried. He is very concerned because US intelligence sent a drone to Yemen in order to take out noted terrorist leader, Anwar al-Awlaki. Mr. Awladki was an American citizen who left the country in order to engage in military action against the USA. Actually, during WWII thousands of German Americans returned to Germany in order to fight in the Nazi armed forces. Prior to beginning an attack on German troops, the US did not make an announcement asking any of the opposing enemy who was an American citizen to raise his hand in order to make certain he was not killed.
Yes, Ron Paul makes an important point that ordering the killing of an American citizen is a tricky issue. But, his comment: “can you imagine being put on a list because you’re a threat? What’s going to happen if they come to the media?”
OK, here is what might happen?
1. Sarah Palin will be compelled to cite facts to support her argument or she will be condemned to spend her entire life in the wilds of Alaska.
2. Glenn Beck will be forced to have his mouth washed out with soap everytime he draws a circle.
3. Michele Bachmann will be given a frontal lobotomy every time she makes one of her inane comments.
