Williams: Where’s The Outrage Over Obama’s Drone Policy?

magine if President George W. Bush or senior members of his administration asserted that they had the power to assassinate any person, including American citizens on American soil, because they merely suspected them of being involved in a terrorist plot.

Now, imagine that they went a step further and claimed that this broad new power was not subject to any oversight by Congress or the judiciary or international law.

A lot of left-wingers would be apoplectic. And they would be right.

Sadly, a Democratic president, Barack Obama, and senior national security officials in his administration appear to be wielding just that kind of power without any oversight, according to a memorandum outlining the extent of the U.S. drone program uncovered by NBC News Investigative Reporter Michael Isikoff.

Yet, the absence of national outrage is deafening.

    They (Moore and Williams) are just covering their asses. They are on record stating this and won’t pursue it any further.

    @Mr. Pinko–

    You are probably right, but it is interesting to wonder just why they are doing this. What would be the advantage to them of covering their asses? They haven’t shown much regard for opposing positions up to now. Is there something special about these two particular issues?

    I’m sorry, but I’m not outraged about the US killing people who are our enemies in a war. That isn’t what is outrageous about Obama’s drone policy. What is outrageous is, Obama made such a great big, hairy stink about “not our values” regarding Gitmo and waterboarding. He freaking campaigned on it. It is outrageous because Obama is a f*cking hypocrite and, the left, for that matter are not outraged because they are hypocrites too.

    Come on Diann. It’s the whole package. Google, Facebook collecting all your info and giving it to the Gov. The so called Patriot act were they can spy on you anytime they want. Now a tool to kill you if the info they have collected is not deemed acceptable. We are not a free people.

    The PEW poll came out and said 26% of those polled express mixed reactions to being targeted for killing based on some beaurecrat’s thinking….and thats what the libs advertize….what about the 74% not mentioned? HUH???? bet they feel that this is tyranny of the highest magnitude and probably cause for the ultimate response.

    You sure this didn’t come from the Onion? I have a hard time believing it. I mean, we’re talking about something so over the top and far-fetched that its just unfathomable…

    I’ve been called a “Tinfoil Hatter” quite a few times during this administration for speaking out about some things that were just more unbelievable than fiction, but Juan Williams criticizing an Oama policy… That’s more “Twilight Zone” than the Drone from the Throne!!!

    What are the odds that this is another one of The Obama’s (Obama the KGB Operation to imploode the US, not Obama the lying p.o.s. man-child) diversionary tactics that they seem to be fond of using lately, like the whole Susan Rice nomination or the Sandra Flucks sideshow?
    I propose that they will milk this for all the news “cover” they can hoping to keep the Libyan Gun-Running/ Stevens assasination out of the spotlight, as well as the abandoning of US Sovereignty by the EO that subjects us to ICC and gives Interpol Full Diplomatic Immunity ON US SOIL!!!

    THAT is what makes my brain swell, to hell with drones in AfPokeestan. WTF are we allowing fucking Interpol to operate in this country with ZERO Congressional Oversight or Judicial Review for? If that isn’t the straw that breaks the camel’s back, then we are fugged! That means that there aren’t nearlly enough of us to do anything except gather ourselves up for the slaughter!!!

    What we have is apathy rather than outrage because people feel powerless to stop Obama.

    What we need to do is surround the White House by the tens of thousands and demand that Obama and all of his Co-Conspirators be arrested and placed on trial for High Treason.

    I like Juan – he seems to be a really nice man for a Lefty, and sometimes he “gets” it. But most of the time, not so much.

    Of all the prominent Libs in the media, he strikes me as having the best chance of eventually connecting ALL the dots, if he wasn’t so completely blind to the big black ones.

    In a recent gun debate on Hannity, Williams was defending his choice NOT to protect his home and family. Being one of those people who are petrified by guns, he’d call 911 and huddle in fear til the cops came.

    By the end of the discussion I think he realized what a dangerous position he would put his family in by not taking the responsibility for his own self-defense.
