Senator Rand Paul reportedly received a self-described short answer to his question of the United States Attorney General regarding whether or not ANY President could order a drone attack on a U.S. citizen within the geographic confines of the U.S.
The short answer – NO.
Of course, if there is to be a long legal interpretation of this response it remains to be seen. After all, it might depend on what the meaning of
IS NO is.
And, our esteemed A.G. obviously arrived at the top law enforcement post by understanding the law and keeping to the straight and narrow. (sarcasm font)
The Daily Caller recounts that as a student at Columbia, Eric Holder took part in “a five-day occupation of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters,” which Holder and his fellow radicals demanded be redesignated the “Malcolm X Lounge.” Columbia, consistent with its usual practices at the time, went along with the radicals’ demands.
The Black Student Organization’s web site said that “in 1970, a group of armed black students [the SAAS] seized the abandoned ROTC office.” The “armed” part might have been wishful thinking, but Holder’s radicalism is not in doubt. On another occasion, he participated in the occupation of a dean’s office.
In March 1970 the SAAS released a statement supporting twenty-one Black Panthers charged with plotting to blow up department stores, railroad tracks, a police station and the New York Botanical Gardens.
And then there’s the pardoning of the two Weathermen terrorists.
And Fast and Furious leading to a Citation for Contempt of Congress…and ignoring New Black Panther voter intimidation.
His racism (anti-White bias).
His supporters state he’s only been ‘leveling the playing field’ for his race; the same argument The President uses. So all this is okay, right?
Answer me this: How does a man get to the level of chief law enforcement officer of the United States after hanging with unrepentant radicals and domestic terrorists in his college years? How is such a person vetted?
Some would suggest these questions also apply to his boss. I’m told that’s nothing more than guilt by association, though.
