Quote "The United States is in an armed conflict with Al-Qaeda and its assocaited forces, and congress has authorized the President (Bush-Obama) to use all necessary and appropriate force against those entities. The U.S. government could use lethal force in a foreign country outside the area of active hostilities against a U.S. citizen who is a senior operational leader of Al-Qaeda (i.e. Anwar Awlaki and Samir Khan) or a Al-Qaeda associated force of Al-Qaeda".
NBC NEWS EXCLUSIVE: Justice Department memo reveals legal case for drone strikes on Americans. A confidential Justice Department memo concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed to be “senior operational leaders” of al-Qaida or “an associated force” -- even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S.
The 16-page memo, a copy of which was obtained by NBC News, provides new details about the legal reasoning behind one of the Obama administration’s most secretive and controversial polices: its dramatically increased use of drone strikes against al-Qaida suspects, including those aimed at American citizens, such as the September 2011 strike in Yemen that killed alleged al-Qaida operatives Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan. Both were U.S. citizens who had never been indicted by the U.S. government nor charged with any crimes.
Terrorists Samir Khan and Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen orchestrated at least 4 terror attacks that hit or missed inside the USA. Anwar al-Awlaki was linked to Mohamed Atta and the 9/11 hijackers. My pal Samir Khan put me on a hit list and posted death threats about me along with a YouTube terror video called "Return of the Blog" dedicated to me, Bill Warner PI. Do I care that Samir Khan and Anwar al-Awlaki were blown to tiny bits by a joint CIA and DOD operation using a drone with hellfire rockets, nope.
KILL BILL VOL # 3….1/05/2009…Samir Khan’s al-Qaeda linked new website said..”We apologize for the delay, however the move is successful and this will be permanent, In Sha’ Allah. The lying enemy of Allah, Bill Warner – may Allah destroy him —claimed that he was the one who shut down our blog. Let this be a testimony that this disbeliever is a liar”. “May Allah send a hurricane over his (Bill Warner) house so that he can be wiped out, humiliated. In addition, al-Thabaat forums are back up. Please visit the main page here. We have dedicated a video to the return of the blog to strike fear in the heart of the Kuffaar Bill Warner“.
The attorney general said that lethal force is legal under a Sept. 18, 2001, joint congressional resolution. The Authorization for Use of Military Force enacted a week after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks authorizes the use of all necessary force in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States.... go for it.
