    Someone already posted this yesterday. It is going to be a very sad day for America when an American is targeted by those who are sworn to protect and uphold.

    Is this new? Or have they always had this authority?

    Ruby Ridge sound familiar?

    Or how about Waco?

    Were not those people American citizens?

    I don't see what the big fuss is about.

    Guy waving an assult rifle around in a mall. Should we care if he's an American Citizen before we target him? Should we wait until he begins spraying us with bullets?

    True. But they used the word "assassination" Isn't that different than defense?

    Frankly, my dear, if someone was plotting to bomb your house, I wouldn't give a damn whether they "assasinated" them, or if they simply "disappeared" or if a cop shot them.

    Would you?


    What WOULD piss me off is if the US Government decided to do nothing but wait until your house went up in a ball of flame, then took action.

    WTF do folks want us to do? Issue hats and Tshirts with "citizen" on it so intelligence can attempt to sort things out before giving someone a third eye and a large hole in the back of their head?
    This is nothing new. Hundreds of assasinations take place and Joe Public is not informed.
    And I M glad he is not.
    The real problem is no one should talk about it and now they are. Intelligence is not an exact science.

    Forgive my cynacism, but I don't think the gubmint would give a rats ass if my house was about to be blown up. I'd trust my local police more.

    I don't see them ever exercising this "right". Even after our houses are blown up, they'd get him a fuckin lawyer.
