Obama Administration Openly Considering Drone Strike on American Citizen, Eviscerating Constitutional Protections
On the morning of February 10th, it came to light that the US government—specifically the Pentagon and CIA—have been considering whether or not to assassinate an American citizen via drone missile. This situation marks the first time that the Obama administration has admitted to targeting Americans for assassination, as well as the first time that the media has been given notification of a potential assassination before it actually occurs (if it occurs).
Three Americans (Samir Khan, Anwar al-Awlaki and Abdulrahman al-Awlaki) have already been killed in past drone strikes, but the Obama administration has refused to confirm that they were the targets—they have ostensibly (if ridiculously) left open the possibility that these Americans were killed by accident during assassinations of people near them. In these previous situation, this deniability has shielded the Obama administration from having to explain its legal justifications for claiming the authority to extra-judicially kill Americans abroad.
