Can we at least get a powerpoint or keynote file?

You are a terrorist. Yes, You!.

Apparently We, the US Gov, don’t need to have any proof. We just need the President to say so.

Never mind the Constitution.

I’m “sure” that there is plenty of evidence proving that Anwar Awlaki had blood on his hands. A judicial case proving it would be swell, but, because we trust Nobel Peace Prizer Winner Barack Obama so much, can we just get a simple document? A powerpoint presentation? (( or even better a Keynote presentation, they are much stronger in the reality distortion field… )) You know, just a draft of something stating that he was heard discussing something, somebody on the field identified him, his communications were intercepted and something on it was self-incriminating?

Just something that the rest of us can look upon and say, okay, the US Gov. is not just randomly killing his citizens without due process on the orders of its President.

This is a parody of this video and while this one is funny in its nonsense type, the real one is just… scary…

Really America? 50 states, 300 million people and this sampling is what you get? I know, “Misses” aren’t exactly MIT material, unfortunately it’s like this everywhere, but that all of them side with the moronic side of this discussion is terrifying.

By the way, if nothing else would turn me an atheist, this kind of divine joke would. Such nice wrappings (not only in the original video but everywhere) and nothing inside. It’s a sadistic law of nature. Oh, i hate you “Lord”!

On a side note, Miss Massachusetts is hot…

The not so quiet American

The government “needs to do all it can” in the name of Terrorism: even targeting its own citizens with assassination without a trial based on the mere suspicion that he’s doing something criminal — or invading other countries that haven’t attacked us — or dropping a continuous stream of missiles on people’s homes who are purely innocent — or locking people up for life without a trial. This is the sociopathic mindset of the security fetishist that dominates our political discourse — Terrorism: the meaningless though all-justifying slogan — and, more than anything else, this is what explains why something as radical and dangerous as the President’s due-process-free assassination program aimed at American citizens triggers so little objection.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Is Dead, Vader Says

Lord Vader discourses at Coruscant

CORUSCANT — Obi-Wan Kenobi, the mastermind of some of the most devastating attacks on the Galactic Empire and the most hunted man in the galaxy, was killed in a firefight with Imperial forces near Alderaan, Darth Vader announced on Sunday.

In a late-night appearance in the East Room of the Imperial Palace, Lord Vader declared that “justice has been done” as he disclosed that agents of the Imperial Army and stormtroopers of the 501st Legion had finally cornered Kenobi, one of the leaders of the Jedi rebellion, who had eluded the Empire for nearly two decades. Imperial officials said Kenobi resisted and was cut down by Lord Vader’s own lightsaber. He was later dumped out of an airlock.

The Galactic Empire Times

This is the best political/media satire ever. And one of the best awakening calls ever. That we are celebrating the assassination elimination of an enemy without even the faintest touch of Law and Order that should be the reason normal action of a constitutional government.

Just for the Homeland Patriotic fascists folks, i had no doubt that Bin Laden Obi-Wan should have faced this penalty. But i think that at least a lawful nation should have had a court, a process, anything that might resemble a system of law. No one with an ounce of realism doubted that this would be the final result. But sometimes keeping the formalities and having the appearance of something is the difference between light and dark. Between moderates everywhere thinking that this was a criminal that should have been caught, judged and executed, or thinking that this was simply a band of imperial barbarians that have no respect whatsoever for anyone outside of their borders. (( and sometimes not even inside their borders…))

By the way, if you want/need examples of similar cases go no further than Saddam Hussein, Adolf Eichmann or Nicolae Ceaușescu. They all got the same deserved fate but at least a modest appearance of due process was maintained.
