John Yoo: The Real Problem with Assassinating U.S. Citizens? We Canít Torture Them ... Not the onion
John Yoo, George W. Bushs Assistant US Attorney General in the Office of Legal Counsel, has a real problem with Obamas use of drones. But his problem isnt that Obama claims the right to kill U.S. citizens without charge or trialits that we cant capture and torture them without charge or trial.
This is a terrifying example of how the extreme militarist fanatics on the right can make Obamas most damaging Constitutional precedent look benign, and, in the process, put the left in the position of defending him. Rather than capture terroristswhich produces the most valuable intelligence on al QaedaMr. Obama has relied almost exclusively on drone attacks, he wrote in The Wall Street Journal today.
The man is in serious need of treatment; there are permanent cures for this sort of thing....
Like he's just a mischievous little imp taunting us with his wild rantings, believing he can't be touched.
