Skip to comments.Holder: US can legally kill Americans in terror groups
Posted on 03/05/2012 11:31:46 PM PST by South40
The U.S. government is legally justified in killing its own citizens overseas if they are involved in plotting terror attacks against America, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday, offering the Obama administration's most detailed explanation so far of its controversial targeted killing program.
The Fifth Amendment provides that no one can be "deprived of life" without due process of law. But that due process, Holder said, doesn't necessarily come from a court.
"Due process and judicial process are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security. The Constitution guarantees due process, not judicial process," the attorney general said.

Can the U.S. say “90% of guns in Mexico come from the United States” and then work hard to make it become a reality?
I’m for public hanging. Didn’t we do that once to traitors?
Isn't this the same clown who was arguing that foreign terrorists in Gitmo should be given Civilian Trials in United States courts? Didn't he represent these terrorists before he was the AG?
FYEH, traitorous swine that you are, and your Dept of JustUS.
More non-news. The US can kill any opponents of Obama.
Holder is a fascist, as is Obama. People STILL do not get it yet.
Coming to a gun clinging Bible study group near you.
To define terror by Obama’s standards is to point a finger at returning servermen, conservatives, and any group opposed to him. Obama now can kill them all.
“Holder: US can legally kill Americans in terror groups”
Let’s play jeopardy.
What is batfe?
Janet Nappy's uncle Janet Reno tole him so!
Based on Holder’s summary, i.e. The Constitution guarantees due process, not judicial process then Americans should be able to kill their politicians if they represent a threat to America.
I’m just saying...
“”Due process and judicial process are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security. “
Holder just blew up his rationale opposing military tribunals for terrorists. Wait a minute! Maybe this is actually his objective.
“Holder: US can legally kill Americans in terror groups”
Does this include Obama’s two terrorist friends, Ayers and Dohrn? Both should be executed for their roles in terror attacks which led to the deaths of police officers. As for Holder, he helped in the pardons of members of the Puerto Rican Marxist-revolutionary terror group, the FALN. Also in communist Weather Underground member Susan Rosenberg’s pardon. She was caught transporting 800 pounds of explosives for upcoming attacks (in 1981). Bill Clinton, with Holder’s help, pardoned her.
Sorry, just correcting tagline screw up.
Considering that the current administration & its minions are apparently a “terror group”, just what does he mean? Self-loathing suicide???? I am confused.
If the King of Amerika says you're an enemy of the State, the State can kill you.
He can try.
He will reap what he sows...
(The above-indicated edits await us in a second Obama term.)
To him we are a terror group
“The U.S. government is legally justified in killing its own citizens overseas if they are involved in plotting terror attacks against America “
If so then great, let the purging of muslims from the world begin. If there are any real peaceful muslims (doubt it), they have 90 days to repudiate that devil worshiping cult or become part of the target rich environment.
Unless, of course, they belong to the muslim brotherhood—a protected class of blacks who have lived in the states.
And he’s also the clown who doesn’t mind offing hundreds of Mexicans.
"During the 1970s and 1980s, FALN members set off at least 138 bombs in five major U.S. Cities. Six Americans were killed in those attacks. One of those bombings, in January 1975, was at the historic Fraunces Tavern in lower Manhattan while patrons were at lunch. The explosion killed four and injured more than 50."
"Fraunces Tavern is a restaurant and museum in lower Manhattan, New York City. It was built on the site of a former building which played a significant role in pre-Revolutionary activities, and in which, on 4 December 1783, General George Washington bade farewell to his officers at the end of the Revolution, before returning to his home, Mount Vernon."
"Between 1974 and 1985 the FALN (Puerto Rican Armed Forces of National Liberation) organized 120 terrorist bombings in the United States. Many Americans were killed in those bombings, and many more were crippled. In 1983, another Puerto Rican terrorist group known as the Macheteros, attacked and robbed a Wells Fargo armored car in Connecticut. The Macheteros intended to use the money to finance a terrorist campaign against the United States. Working under the cover of Puerto Rican nationalism and claiming to act on behalf of the 'oppressed people of Puerto Rico,' the FALN and the Macheteros are nothing but Communist revolutionaries. Both groups were organized by Fidel Castro's secret police. The ultimate goal of the FALN and the Macheteros is the creation of an independent Marxist-Leninist dictatorship on the island of Puerto Rico."
Eric Holder's role in the pardons of BLA (Black Liberation Army) comrades/Weather Underground members, Susan Rosenberg and Linda Evans (1983 Brinks Truck robbery and triple murder):
"Americas chickens... are coming home... to ROOST!"
Can’t... you... see... it coming.... EMPIRE !!
Holder is part of a terror group. He and Obama illegally sent weapons into Mexico that were then used to kill Mexican and American citizens and government agents.
Fast & Furious is an international crime!
Arming terrorists in a foreign land is an act of WAR against said foreign nation.
Emma Furs violated the war powers act AGAIN!
