    No joke. Every once in a blue moon, I unceremoniously break with my general policy of unrelenting criticism of President Obama. Generally, I find him to be the Asshat in Chief.

    HOWEVER, when he does something right, it seems only fair to acknowledge that, too.

    I see (linked off of Drudge) that the President's lawyers have staked out a legal claim that Americans who take up arms with the likes of al qaeda against the Unite States are not immune from being targeted AS enemy combatants.

    Obama lawyers: Citizens targeted if at war with US - Yahoo! News

    Good for them and good for President Obama.

    I say they (and the President) are exactly right on the mark!

    who gets to decide if someone has indeed taken up arms with al qaeda?

    who gets to decide if someone is an unlawful combatant?

    Because when AMERICANS engage in acts of war against the United States, they deserve either a free pass or to be tried within the limits of a criminal justice legal system?

    You are a bit of an asshat, apparently.

    Stop being a racist.

    Praise your President very much.

    Yes, but who determines whether they are committing an act of war?

    Me.

    Personally.

    As it should be.

    If you'd stopped and thought it through BEFORE 'asking' that "question," there's a pretty good chance you wouldn't have publicly embarrassed yourself like that.

    SOMETIMES the answer is painfully obvious.

    Like the underwear bomber.

    When the smoke pours out of his panties and he's burned his willie, and the prompt rendering of medical assistance reveals that he'd been wearing a Depends brand panty bomb, THERE ISN'T really any question about whether or not he'd been engaged in an intended act of war.

    It WAS pretty fucking obvious.

    Good of you to admit as much.
