I'm watching Glenn Beck (which i often do now for comedy) and he mentioned the administration targeting a US citizen for assassination. Is this true?
If this is true (which may or may not be the case) then we have to say something about this. It is bad enough that we kill foreign civilians without trial. Are we now also targeting American citizens?
I'm sure the answer will come quickly from the Kos I just want to alleviate my own mind about this.
BTW, watching Beck's list (which i giggled at) is correct in one point: All the things he listed that I railed against Bush from Gitmo, to wiretapping, to treating terrorists outside the rule of law, this administration is doing.
It is sad that I am even questioning whether the government has targeted a US citizen for assassination. What do the Dailykos members think about this?
Glen Beck may have just said something that makes sense! Ding, Ding! if the President can authorize the assassination of a US citizen without trial, then he can kill at will. Does he not become a dictator?
I cannot believe the Obama administration knowingly authorized that. Maybe the CIA acting alone might but the President? I'm praying this isn't true.

Can't believe I missed this. There should really be outrage over this.
