The due-process-free assassination of U.S. citizens is now reality

The Obama administration had compiled a hit list of American citizens whom the President had ordered assassinated without any due process, and one of those Americans was Anwar al-Awlaki.

I went over to a drudge blog, I chose Pajama Media, to read a few predictable comments, here is one of them: "They’ll be arguing about the Constitution and al-Awlaki’s citizenship (which he spit on) for years, but the fact is another facilitator of serial murder is dead and can do no more harm (well, except for the DVDs and CDs). It’s also another body blow to fanatic Islam, so personally, I’m pleased with the outcome."
One more: "Another Al Quaida rodent has been turned into instant landscape. Gee, I wonder if there was enough of him left to wash and prepare for a proper Muslim funeral? Oh well, its just an occupational hazard that comes with being a radical Islamist. I hope his seventy-two butt ugly virgins are worth it."
The PJ writer reporting the story has this to say about the below report by Glen Greenwald: "The morally confused Glenn Greenwald wails upon the death of a dual citizen who exploited his command of English to successfully exhort young Muslims to wage war against the United States within our territory."
No mention of the trampling of the US constitution and Rule of Law which really seems more and more to be a thing of the past. That is, since the Jew hijacked the government in 2001.
Executive Order 11905, issued in 1976 by President Gerald Ford, reads: "No employee of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, political assassination."
Meanwhile I thought this video is interesting food for thought, although personally I am getting dizzy trying to follow the dots and beginning to wonder if it's even worth it. Sometimes I wonder what would happen if I just stopped paying attention to the bizarro world. Would it go away (is ignorance still bliss?) or...we COULD change the world if we wanted to...!http://equalpartyusa.wordpress.com/





It was first reported in January of last year that the Obama administration had compiled a hit list of American citizens whom the President had ordered assassinated without any due process, and one of those Americans was Anwar al-Awlaki.  No effort was made to indict him for any crimes (despite a report last October that the Obama administration was "considering" indicting him).  Despite substantial doubt among Yemen experts about whether he even has any operational role in Al Qaeda [Al-CIAduh], no evidence (as opposed to unverified government accusations) was presented of his guilt.  When Awlaki's father sought a court order barring Obama from killing his son, the DOJ argued, among other things, that such decisions were "state secrets" and thus beyond the scrutiny of the courts.  He was simply ordered killed by the President: his judge, jury and executioner.  When Awlaki's inclusion on President Obama's hit list was confirmed, The New York Times noted that "it is extremely rare, if not unprecedented, for an American to be approved for targeted killing."

After several unsuccessful efforts to assassinate its own citizen, the U.S. succeeded today (and it was the U.S.).  It almost certainly was able to find and kill Awlaki with the help of its long-time close friend President Saleh, who took a little time off from murdering his own citizens to help the U.S. murder its.  The U.S. thus transformed someone who was, at best, a marginal figure into a martyr, and again showed its true face to the world.  The government and media search for The Next bin Laden has undoubtedly already commenced.
What's most striking about this is not that the U.S. Government has seized and exercised exactly the power the Fifth Amendment was designed to bar ("No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law"), and did so in a way that almost certainly violates core First Amendment protections(questions that will now never be decided in a court of law). What's most amazing is that its citizens will not merely refrain from objecting, but will stand and cheer the U.S. Government's new power to assassinate their fellow citizens, far from any battlefield, literally without a shred of due process from the U.S. Government.  Many will celebrate the strong, decisive, Tough President's ability to eradicate the life of Anwar al-Awlaki -- including many who just so righteously condemned those Republican audience members as so terribly barbaric and crass for cheering Governor Perry's execution of scores of serial murderers and rapists -- criminals who were at least given a trial and appeals and the other trappings of due process before being killed. 
From an authoritarian perspective, that's the genius of America's political culture.  It not only finds way to obliterate the most basic individual liberties designed to safeguard citizens from consummate abuses of power (such as extinguishing the lives of citizens without due process).  It actually gets its citizens to stand up and clap and even celebrate the destruction of those safeguards.

  2. Indeed, su. I can't follow the dots on this one but I get the idea. The Jew is assuming absolute control over the goyim of the world. It's the Jew since the US presidents are vetted by them. If people don't think that's a problem just look at the Palestinians!
