The extra-constitutional folly of the Obama regime continues in full bloom, however the New York Times stepped off the reservation with a report Saturday of an admission by the Obama State Department that the Obama-approved assassination of a 16-year-old American in Yemen was a “mistake“.
The missile strike on Sept. 30, 2011, that killed Mr. Awlaki — a terrorist leader whose death lawyers in the Obama administration believed to be justifiable — also killed Mr. Khan, though officials had judged he was not a significant enough threat to warrant being specifically targeted. The next month, another drone strike mistakenly killed Mr. Awlaki’s 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman, who had set off into the Yemeni desert in search of his father. Within just two weeks, the American government had killed three of its own citizens in Yemen. Only one had been killed on purpose.
Where are all the civil libertarians from the left?
This young man wasn’t arrested or tortured. He wasn’t waterboarded. He wasn’t even tried before he got a Hellfire missile up his keister.
All because Barack Obama approved his assassination.
Way to go Barack.
And these are the people who claim they support our 2nd Amendment rights?
The Obama administration respects our rights about as much as they did this boy’s rights.
And they claim authority to carry own drone strikes domestically now, as well.
