It wasn’t good that Bush pursued terrorists and used water boarding to find out where they were before they could kill Americans.
As I recall, Democrats were outraged about this policy, especially one Senator B. Obama.
In B. Obama’s second term, killing Americans via a drone overseas is OK, however. Obama takes away their right for a trial. He’ll just kill them if he feels like it.
And his press secretary, Jay Carney, called this legal, ethical and wise. From the Washington Free Beacon:
White House press secretary said Tuesday the administration’s use of drones is “legal,” “ethical,” and “wise,” at a press briefing following remarks by President Obama.
“These strikes are legal, they are ethical and they are wise,” Carney said.
NBC News reported late Monday on an unclassified Department of Justice white paper on the use of drones against American citizens, like al Qaeda operatives Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan.
What Constitution is this man using? His own?
