George W. Bush, Term III (cont.)

It seems the coordinated activities of the CIA, CENTCOM and probably, the Yemenis themselves, have resulted in the targeted assassination of one Anwar Al-Aulaqi, an American born Islamic cleric and all around al-Qaeda rabble rouser.

Dead Meat
It is good and proper that he is dead.  I applaud the Obama Administration Justice Department for having reached a tough, but reasonable opinion stating that the targeted assassination of an American Citizen without judicial due process was legal.

Yet where is the outpouring of protest (except from Ron Paul)?  Where are the Democrats screaming for the President's head for his expansive view of the Commander-in-Chief authority?  Where are the legions of Bought and Paid For Media types openly questioning the legality of the Administration's actions?  Not hearing them?  Well of course not.  Because their man is in charge now, and it would be inconvenient to raise such questions in the midst of his trying to be re-elected.

Barack Obama's approach to the war on terror is George W. Bush's approach.  No--that's not right.  It's an amped-up version of GWB's approach.  But you wouldn't know it from the conspiracy of silence that is the BAPF Media.

More evidence of media corruption.

The last election, and in the coverage of the President during this term, the BAPF/MSM have forfeited their claims to legitimacy, and should be shuttered.

There is a distinct difference between being an "American" and being an "American citizen."
