Executive Power, 2010 Edition
Transplanted Lawyer wonders where the outrage is over the recent claim by the Obama Administration that it has the authority to assassinate US citizens believed to be terrorist participants, noting that this is an even more remarkable assertion than anything Bush ever claimed. He further states:
“If we’re going to have an overt policy authorizing assassinations — and I can see that there are some good arguments for why we should — then we should do what we can to make that policy conform to our Constitutional ideals.”
That doesn’t seem like too much to ask.
