Drones, Drones, everywhere a Drone
Something happened on September 30, 2011, I’ll give you a hint can you say “Drone”. Something happened to Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan on that date, these two jokers were members of the Terrorist group called al-Qaeda, these two jokers were raised in the USA, theses two jokers were killed by a missile attack .These two jokers were the First American Citizens killed by a U.S. Drone on that date. One might say “what’s the big deal?" These two jokes were playing Terrorist and got burned” and I agree.
But the fact remains these two American Citizens were killed by an American Drone on orders from an American President and Justified by an American President. Last Monday a memo surfaced, and it basically stated it is lawful to target al-Qaida linked U.S. citizens if they pose an "imminent" threat of violent attack against Americans, and that delaying action against such people would create an unacceptably high risk. Such circumstances may necessitate expanding the concept of imminent threat.
What is an “imminent threat?" Is it a Citizen who questions the Government? Is it a group that wants to hold Government to be accountable? Is it organizations that have opposing views of a President’s policies?
What is the definition of a civilian? What is the definition of a Terrorist? What is the definition of an enemy combatant? What is the definition of a threat? And when is it “legal” and “moral” to kill citizens by Drone strikes?
States and the Feds are trying to set guidelines for the use of Drones within the Country. Will the Government be able to strike Americans within America without a trail? Will Drones be issuing Speeding Tickets, Zoning Violations, and Enforcing Building Codes, Making sure your dog is registered and licensed? Remember The Drones will be WATCHING YOU. Welcome to the New USSA!
May God Save the USA
