Hopefully this resolution will pass. It demands WH justification for drone attacks, especially the killing of Americans.

Democratic Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Republican Texas Rep. Ron Paul and Democratic New Jersey Rep. Rush Holt Jr. are challenging the Obama administration to release documents it uses to legally justify drone strikes overseas.

If passed by Congress, their “resolution of inquiry” would require Attorney General Eric Holder to “transmit to the House of Representatives not later than 14 days after the date of the adoption of this resolution, any documents and legal memoranda in the Attorney General’s possession relating to the practice of targeted killing of United States citizens and targets abroad.”

In a statement released on Wednesday, Kucinich said national security concerns do not justify unconstitutional measures.

“We must reject the notion that protecting our national security requires revoking the constitutional rights of U.S. citizens. No president can act as judge, jury and executioner, and any attempt to do so is in direct violation of our Constitution, which gives our citizens a right to life and a fair trial,” Kucinich said.

“According to a memorandum prepared by the White House Office of Legal Counsel, when the United States conducts such an attack it is legal. The Congress and the American people have a right to know this legal framework. Congress has an obligation as the sole authority under the Constitution to declare war to know how the use of force abroad is being used, especially against U.S. citizens.”

Yeah. I guess a president murdering US citizens is only a crime when he is Republican.

In the eyes of MANY on this website since our Emperor-in-Chief has no clothes (or class, but that's another story).

you have to remember this is a radical website you are on their ground here some of your logic doesnt make sense to them

Oh I know that. That;s why I seldom post. Not just because of deaf ears, but you usually just get attacked for being a Republican or something. I have learned that what cons say about leftist tolerance is true. I prefer "leftist" to "liberal" because the folks that call themselves liberals are nothing more than leftists in a prettier wrapper (they think). "progressive"....that's another clunker.

Says the man who won't accept a single truth about the man he named himself after and the parties he's represented.

I read those fuckin' racist newsletters, first run.

He wasn't denying what they said back then, he endorsed it.

Koch? Halliburton? which emperor or would be emperor? Exxon? Goldmansucks? So many to choose from. If the country dies - they will be fighting over the carcass.

Denni K has possibilities - makes some good speeches - but you denigrate him with the association of RP ( father "or" son ).
