White House Justice Dept has leaked a memo on the legal justifications for killing American citizens anywhere in the world extrajudicially. All they have to do is come up with some flimsy "Saddam-has-WMDs" pretext to blow you off the face of the Earth with a drone strike without evidence, without filing criminal charges and without a court hearing or even court warrant - even while you sleep at home in NYC with your family and children.

“This is a chilling document,” said Jameel Jaffer, deputy legal director of the ACLU, which has sued unsuccessfully in court to obtain administration memos about the targeted killing of Americans. “Basically, it argues that the government has the right to carry out the extrajudicial killing of an American citizen. … It recognizes some limits on the authority it sets out, but the limits are elastic and vaguely defined, and it’s easy to see how they could be manipulated.”

Here is the leaked document: http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/i/msnbc/sections/news/020413_DOJ_White_Paper.pdf

All they have to do is link you to Al Qaeda or a group linked to Al Qaeda. The fact is that everyone in the world is connected to everyone else in the world through only six people on average. So let's say you are opposing the US Govt in NYC for spying on citizens illegally. If they want to stop you, they could link you to one of your high school friends who is a member of a charity in their hometown of Pakistan who is a supporter of a school that is supported by a group that is funded by Al Qaeda and say that you thus pose a threat to the USA. McCarthyism never had it so good! We are falling over the fascist cliff hard and fast. It is only seconds before he hit the bottom - especially with this Brenner (Deputy CIA director under the torture era of Bush, and the father of today's drone program) as CIA director.

I suppose if they are "leaders of Al Qaeda or an affiliated group" it's ok?

Is that what I'm to understand?

End the drone stikes! End the phony war on terror!
