Fox Analyst Defends Drones:
If An American Takes Up Arms
Against Fellow Citizens, ‘You
Kill The Sucker, Period’

Mediaite, by Meenal Vamburkar

President Obama‘s drone program has elicited controversy, to say the least, but he does have some support among those who aren’t typically his biggest fans. On Friday’s Fox & Friends, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters spoke to co-host Gretchen Carlson about how the program is Obama’s one “sensible” policy. “It’s the only policy Obama has that works,” Peters said. The administration’s policy to kill not capture terrorists is a “wise” one, he added, because capturing them just sticks us with another “unfunded liability.” The bottom line:

Comments:
The only comment I would make is that we haven´t ever had anyone like the malignant, messianic narcissist 0bama in the White House. What if they started doing that here in the USA? Nothing is too far fetched with this regime.

Excuse us...but did he miss the part about - "Need not be actively involved in any plot to harm the US..." language in that epistle?

Damn funny stuff. As Senator, Obama railed against ´possible torture of a US citizen´. As president - he´s fine w/ offing ´em based on ´suspicion´ and without Due Process.

So...when people refer to Obama as a ´Constitutional Law Professor´ - and the room doesn´t immediately bust out laughing, is that some sort of ´intentional effort´ not to ´appear racist´?

It´s almost as if the entire liberal side of the country has their mouth super-glued shut on this issue. Had it surfaced under *Bush*, the media hot air produced would melt this weekend´s Northern chill in a heartbeat.

So Peters is threating our sucker called Obama? He sure is because Obama is taking up arms against fellow citizens.

Good call, #1. Obama´s entire career and especially his presidency can be summed up as an ´intentional effort to not appear racist".

It´s distressing that Obama has so divided the country, that many conservatives suspend judgment, if not reason on anything having to do with Obama. When acting in his role as Commander and Chief, with duty of defending the U.S., he has the right to order the killing of any military (not criminal) threat, even on U.S. soil. FDR did it when one of a group of saboteurs turned out to be an American citizen.

Which is not to say that Obama and the Dems have not been total hypocrites on the issue, but conservatives need to understand that tying Obama´s hands would tie the hands of every president who comes after him.

It is now officially less than four years before Obama leaves office. In the meantime, let´s try to minimize the damage he does till then without creating new ones of our own that will hurt us and the country after Obama´s gone.

No, if an American kills his fellow citizens, the police catch him, provide evidence of his wrongdoing, a jury looks at it all and decides on a punishment. So far that punishment has never included a drone strike to "kill the sucker..." And if this is such a great idea, why don´t we put a drone up for the LAPD ex-cop who´s on the run for murder. Let´s just skip the capture, trial, blah, blah, blah... and "kill the sucker, period".

It´s not like this is being done here in the states.
If there are US citizens in Yemen or Afghanistan that are aiding terrorists, they´re traitors and deserve to die.

As far as I´m concerned, this is the only thing that Obongo has gotten right in the last 4 years.

The disconnect here is that the dems were demanding Geneva Convention rights for the terrorists at Gitmo.

Obamao wanted to bring KSM to NYC for a civil trial.

funny how this government will give constitutional rights to Illegal aliens, but yet kill citizens without due process of law totally ignoring the constitutional rights of those citizens even if they are out of the country. I´m sorry but if we allow this to happen because they are and I quote "terrorists" what happens when you and I are labeled "terrorists" because of what we believe in.
We are still a nation of laws and we have the right of a jury trial, and we are to be considered innocent until convicted guilty. Those "conservatives" who have no problems with this don´t understand the Constitution of the USA and why it was written that way. Better go back and look up the period of time before the revolutionary war and find out what happened to citizens by the government controlled by the English at the time.

The issue is how is it controlled. I´m not in favor of giving Obama any more authority. I don´t trust him with the authority he already has. I don´t mind the killing of the Al awaki types, but why don´t we try to capture some of them and interrogate them? It´s quite obvious that Obama doesn´t want to do that.

We´re not allowed to waterboard or put underwear on the heads of islamic terror suspects but it´s okay to KILL American citizens who are "suspected of terrorism". Ask yourselves one question: Who are considered "terrorists" these days? The world is upside down. We´re living in an Orwellian world.

If it is justified to kill them then why not: capture them, torture them until they tell us everything, and then execute them. They´re just as dead. We have some useful information. Plus we aren´t killing people willy-nilly from anonymous altitudes. At least we are grabbing them and making them talk and finding out if they really should be killed.

This is about ´lethal force against American citizens.´ It is not about ´drones.´The White Paper does not mention ´drones.´This ´White Paper´ pretty well specifies that lethal force may be used against a U.S. citizen outside the United States who ´is a senior operational leader of al-Qa´ida actively engaged in planning operations to kill Americans.´

I personally don´t see anything wrong with that position. That this action can be determined by ´an informed hi-level official´ is somewhat disturbing. Who isn´t an´informed hi-level official´ in Washington? This gives life-or-death power to un-specified people.

But then, if the ones targeted are the ones specified...again....they are planning attacks on the U.S!
But there are three sentences that stand out toward the end. I quote them below.The omission of the phrase "outside the United States" in these sentences, IMO, just might negate the focus of the whole paper.

"...A lawful killing in self-defense is not an assassination. In the Department´s view, a lethal operation conducted against a U.S. citizen whose conduct poses an imminent threat of violent attack against the United States would be a legitimate act of self-defense that would not violate the assassination ban. Similarly, the use of lethal force, consistent with the laws of war, against an individual who is a legitimate military target would be lawful and would not violate the assassination ban...."

These sentences do concern me!

In too many ways, Fox Cable News has gone
off the rails. At one time, it was THE channel to watch, for me. About a year ago, I felt that enough was enough and cut my viewing time to just a few hours a week, so that all I now watch on TV is sports and some movies. A perfect example, on The Five, which someone else in our home had turned on Thurs, Feb 7, these 5 idiots were LAUGHING and making jokes while the videos of Flash Mobs destroying peoples business were being displayed. To me these 5 people were sickening. They are so enamored with each other that they are like a blob of protoplasm that reacts in one manner and it is no longer even a news program, or informational. Fox Cable Channel in a nutshell.

As Americans, we believe in a God-given (not Congress-given, not Court-given, not even Constitution-given, but "God-given") Right to Life, which does not mean "pacifism" but which does at least mean you have a right not to be intentionally targeted and killed unless you have been found guilty of a capital crime or are presently involved in an act of aggression.

We also believe (Constitution, 14th Amendment) that a citizen must not be deprived of life, liberty or property without Due Process of Law.

And that is not synonymous with "The Say-So of the Powerful".

There are excellent reasons why these rights are so prominent in our Declaration of Independence and in the U.S. Constitution. It´s because if you give some "informed high official" a license to kill, you have given him a power not safely placed in the hands of any human being.

This is the kind of tyranny that gives tyranny a bad name.

And for conservatives to want to limit the government´s power to tax us, but not the government´s power to kill us --- people, this is insanity beyond all telling.

I´m with #11. If they are on a foreign battlefield (which is often indistinct in this time of irregular combatants) cavorting with the enemy, then I say vaporize them if we can. We use drones because they cannot be reached any other way and the risk is nil. Obviously, this does not pertain to any action within our borders, so maybe we need language to emphasize that.

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W. Bush and even Ronald Reagan used to call on us to go into sensitive areas.” They all asked Carter to deal with “unsavory characters,” but Obama hasn’t reached out to

The award is the group’s “highest honor” and is named for a woman who believed in breeding better humans through eugenics. Planned Parenthood is the nation´s leading abortion provider, having performed 327,166 of the procedures in 2012, according to its latest annual report.

Last week, President Obama directed his Homeland Security Department to examine its current deportation practices -- "to see how it can conduct enforcement more humanely, within the confines of the law," the White House announced on March 13. But with immigration reform stalled in Congress, what more can Obama do? "I think he´s going to wait until August," said Telemundo anchor and immigration-reform advocate José Díaz-Balart. And if Congress doesn´t act on immigration reform by then, "I wouldn´t be surprised if he starts making some very controversial executive orders to mitigate the pain of millions of people who face deportation," Díaz-Balart told

Susan Rice, national security adviser to President Barack Obama, said on Friday that the administration still believes there is a diplomatic solution to the crisis in Ukraine as Russian troops mobilized along the country’s entire eastern border. CBS News reported on Friday that a mass mobilization of Russian forces was taking place on Ukraine’s eastern border with at least twice as many troops as the 20,000 number originally reported. The defense “exercise” included tanks and tactical aircraft and appeared to show signs of a logistical buildup required for a sustained operation. Obama on Thursday announced additional sanctions against Kremlin officials and oligarchs

In 2011, over 8,000 kids were suspended from preschool — preschool! — in America. More than half were black, despite comprising less than half of the student population. Sure, we can entertain a lot of theories why this is the case, but I am going to go with this one: America has a problem with racism. The odds are probably better than even that you will be annoyed by that. Which is fine. I accept that response. And there are a lot of possibilities that could explain how this bit of data is an aberration. As the Associated Press reports, the

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors. Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome.

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends.

Caraway told Channel 4 the pain was extreme for a long time after he was attacked in February. "I´m doing better, just taking things one day at a time," said Caraway. "My wife and

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep.

You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

First lady Michelle Obama told a group of Chinese students Saturday that free speech is a universal right that makes countries stronger. Nations are “stronger and more prosperous” when people’s opinions are heard," Obama said during her trip to China, which employs some of the strictest limits on the Internet. “We respect the uniqueness of other cultures and societies, but when it comes to expressing yourself freely and worshipping as you choose and having open access to information, we believe those universal rights — they are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet,” she said

One of four gubernatorial candidates introduced to California Republicans recently is a registered sex offender who spent more than a decade in state prison, convicted of crimes including voluntary manslaughter and assault with intent to commit rape. (Snip) Champ, a little-known political neophyte from the Fresno County community of Tollhouse, did not directly mention his criminal past during his speech but said, "In my life, I´ve been held accountable because of my stupidity. I do not want anyone else to be enslaved because of their lack of knowledge." Champ´s rap sheet is lengthy. Court records show that in 1992,

They could make a movie out of Moochelle Obama’s trip to China, except they already have: “The Ugly American.” It was bad enough when the first lady and her posse of 70 or so coat-holders took off on yet another globe-trotting adventure, but then she said it was “rare” that she got out of the United States. And now they’re holed up in an $8,350-a-night “presidential suite” at the Westin Hotel in Beijing. Aren’t presidential suites supposed to be reserved for, oh I don’t know, presidents? Now we learn that the grandmother, Marian Robinson, “is barking at the staff.” Barking? Surely Comrade Chris Matthews
