Who decides that a particular person presents a threat sufficient to justify the government’s summarily killing him? The Justice Department contends that the Constitution permits this decision to be entrusted to an “informed high-level official” — with no judicial review before the killing or even after. This is wrong and dangerous.

Wow, it is getting bad when the Justice Department is totally oblivious to what the Constitution authorizes.

I think Holders Justice Department needs a good remedial reading teacher. Oh but don’t call over to the Department of Education for one, they have sworn off teaching reading.

I'm no Constitutional expert, but I don't believe I've ever read or heard of anything like this in the Constitution. Someone cite for me the actual verbiage from that document?
