It’s not not a murder or an assassination. It’s a droning.

Peter Van Buren on Presidents Day via TomDispatch concerning the Constitution, Obama and drones:

“Through what seems to have been an Obama administration leak to the Associated Press, we recently learned that the president and his top officials believe a U.S. citizen — name unknown to us out here — probably somewhere in the tribal backlands of Pakistan, is reputedly planning attacks against Americans abroad. As a result, the White House has, for the last several months, been considering whether or not to assassinate him by drone without trial or due process.”
