Mueller: Not sure If Government Can Assassinate Americans on U.S. Soil

Where do we find people that can rise to such positions with apparently little knowledge of the U.S. Constitution?

For the sake of argument Holder’s meandering is correct, this is a top level terrorist responsible for killing.

Wouldn’t the proper thing be to close in on him immediately, take him alive and then let the CIA take him into international waters to squeeze him for all the information.

Remember again, a drone won’t just take out the tango but the innocents in the location as well.

Eric Holder informed Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) in writing that the White House would be within its legal authority to execute an American citizen via drone on U.S. soil if that person was determined to pose a threat to national security.

 

It took him over 4 minutes to say no perhaps he should be invited to join the Congressional Black Caucus holding emeritus status.

Here is a flashback for Saturday.

It’s time for Mueller to walk the plank!

How about former FBI Director Mueller?

From 2012. Just for the record.

FBI Director Robert Mueller  said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder’s “three criteria” for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S.

 

 

Pressed by House lawmakers about a recent speech in which Holder described the legal justification for assassination, Mueller, who was attending a hearing on his agency’s budget, did not say without qualification that the three criteria could not be applied inside the U.S.

“I have to go back. Uh, I’m not certain whether that was addressed or not,” Mueller said when asked by Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., about a distinction between domestic and foreign targeting.

Graves followed up asking whether “from a historical perspective,” the federal government has “the ability to kill a U.S. citizen on United States soil or just overseas.”

“I’m going to defer.

Holder argued in his remarks that it is “simply not accurate” that the president must get permission from a federal court before taking action against a United States citizen terrorist. (Source)

“Due process and judicial process are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security.

The Constitution guarantees due process, not judicial process,” he said.

  2. Rule of Law says:

    The question was very clear and there is only one answer – NO the government is not free to kill American Citizens on American soil.

    The Constitution has some very basic guarantees one of which is Due Process of Law and another is the Right (shall not be deprived of) to Life, Liberty and property…The Bill of Rights is a part of the U. S. Constitution.

    Eric Holder needs to be hunted down and tried for treason! Fast & Furious was treason and Federal Agents died as a result.

    America needs to return tom the Rule of Law.

  3. The crime > investigation > prosecution > punishment model fits domestic crimes, not war. Jihad is war. Anwar al-Awlaki was a Muslim engaged in terrorism and treason. There is nothing illegal, immoral or fattening about offing him and any Muslim accompanying him on foreign soil at the first opportunity. On US soil, the avoidance of collateral damage would take precedence unless the target was engaged in an attack.
