(AP) President Obama expressed regret and condolences to family members for a January done strike which killed Warren Weinstein of Rockville, MD held by Al-Qaeda in Pakistan since 2011 and Italian aid worker Giovanni Lo Porto.
The two hostages together with American Citizens turned accused Islamic Jihadists Ahmed Farouq and Adam Gadhan of Orange County (California) were killed which White House Press Secy Josh Earnest said in a statement:
“We have concluded that Ahmed Farouq an American who was an Al-Qaeda leader…we have also concluded that Adam Gadahn an American who became a prominent member of Al-Qaeda was killed…”
I have just two question for Obama?
When did these two American citizens, accused Al-Qaeda members relinquish their 5th Amendment right of ‘Due Process’ and who made Barack Obama, their judge, jury and executioner?
On the 05 February, 2013 I wrote here that while I often times am a critic of and disagree with the ACLU, on the issue of the Obama Administration use of lethal force to take out allegedly undesirable American citizens living abroad, I do agree that it ‘underscores the recklessness of the governments central claim and the deficiencies in the government’s defense of it…are so vague and elastic that they will be easily manipulated.’
In March, 2012 former New Jersey Superior Ct Judge and now FOX News Senior Judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano wrote “Can the president kill an American simply because the person is dangerous and his arrest is impractical? Can the president be judge, jury and executioner of an American in a foreign country because he believes that would keep America safe?
We live in a time in which the government recognizes no limits on its power–It doesn’t recognize natural law–It doesn’t recognize federal law. It doesn’t recognize the Constitution…the POTUS…became jusge, jury and executioner for a very hated and probably guilty individual (Anwar al-Awlaki) but the 5th Amendment says that ‘no person shall be denied life, liberty or property’ much less an American, without due process of law…”
