    No. According to the Patriot Act it has got to be the DHS. Otherwise, it would still be illegal for uniformed soldiers to target suspects. (Recall the Geneva Convention making it illegal. Also, how we tried and convicted Nazis after WWII rather than ordering them assassinated as suspects)

    You and most of US, @chrissy. Due process and what exactly does describe a war criminal are both "old hat" now thanks to the Patriot Act. You really needn't bother understanding. Uncle Sam has it all taken care-of. Close your eyes. It will all be over with here shortly.

  8. Hide Behind

    You learn from history why you are where you are at today, And then you plan your future knowing what steps not to take on the pathways to come.

  9. Hide Behind

    A simple truth: Not a one of our legislators, their staffs included, or government employee in DC or elsewhere is going to fall off of any cliff.
    They will not see cuts in healthcare or benefits including pensions.
    Nor will Isreals interest there and here see loss of income.
    Our overseas base building will increase overseas along with civilian contacts to build.The Phillipines will get another increase per year of a billion or few while we take it from those here.
    Now you begin to "Wag the Dog's Tail' thistime of emotions over guns to hide behind as you steal from some to feed yourselves.

  14. FACEBOOK to be sued by

    FACEBOOK has been suspending accounts that post the truth about the Sandy Hook school shooting.
    One account belonged to a group of concerned citizens, Infowars. Oopsy, FB. You stepped on our toes.
    "There is NOTHING carefully concealed that will not be FULLY revealed" says president Obama's bible. This would include the truth about 9/11, and the truth about there being 3 more gunmen at the Sandy hook school shooting.
