Posted on 05/29/2012 7:58:34 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot
It was not a theoretical question: Mr. Obama has placed himself at the helm of a top secret nominations process to designate terrorists for kill or capture, of which the capture part has become largely theoretical. .... underscored just what a moral and legal conundrum this could be. Mr. Obama is the liberal law professor who campaigned against the Iraq war and torture, and then insisted on approving every new name on an expanding kill list, .... it is the president who has reserved to himself the final moral calculation. He is determined that he will make these decisions about how far and wide these operations will go, said Thomas E. Donilon, his national security adviser. His view is that hes responsible for the position of the United States in the world.

...and just why aren’t the Lefties going bananas about this?????
I read this article this morning. It’s nothing but a fluff piece on a democRAT president who is hurting in the polls. The NYT would never have run a piece like this on Bush
They’re happy. They know it helps his campaign to be seen as tough. Why else is the Times printing an article about a top secret program?
Ya, and George W. Bush is regarded by the luntatic-left as some kind of war criminal. By their own standards Obama should be arrested and tried Nuremburg-style.
I thought he got the Nobel Peace Prize...
Yeah, let’s remember Bush was skewered for firing 3 U.S. attornies.
I need to add more here. Remember how ‘obsessed’ Bush was with getting Saddam. We need to know if Obama has a domestic terrorist list he is going down every day and analyzing.
Don't forget modern DICTATORS!
Just imagine substitute Obama’s name with Bush. I don’t think the headline from NYSlime would be fawning over ‘Bush’s Principles and Wills’.....
Obama is determined to have a second term whether we like it or not. He would run over his own mother with a bus to have a second term - that’s what thugs do. Leftists are mental.
How timely of the Times to give America a first-hand look at the Supreme Bruthah’s big nutz.
What a lie! The jug eared communist is out golfing. He doesn’t care about any kill list unless it is to grab credit such as when the Seals offed Osama Bin Ladin
The New York Times is dutifully transmitting from the DNC in an attempt to make Jug Ears look macho. Not a homo even though he made gay 100% OK in our military
Yes Obama has the will to have no priciples...
Yes Obama has the will to have no principles.
Secret Kill List Proves a Test of Obamas Principles and Will
I bet the other side also has a kill list and it is pointed at Washington, District of Crooks.
Let the games begin.
I used to wonder why he continued with the drone strikes until I deduced 1). He is taking out "the wrong" Jihadist... thus, the Muslim Brotherhood has been able to grow and unite like never before. 2). The strikes aggravate and really do grow the Islamic ranks.
That's what I thought this story was originally about when I first saw the title.
From HumanEvents.com, April 29, 2008:
"By all accounts, he [Obama friend and associate, Bill Ayers] was a ferocious, violent, revolutionary Marxist in his halcyon days as a Weatherman leader. He and his Weatherman bombers were enamored of Ho Chi Minh, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Mao Tse-tung -- indeed, all the murderous heroes on the Left. Referring to the Weatherman members in August 1969, he said (according to the FBI): 'Were revolutionary Communists.'
He got off on the groups multiple explosions, too, and discusses them rather lovingly in his memoir.
Ideal Bombing Weather:
'Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon,' he writes (although he concedes it was really a group effort). 'The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.' (p. 256 in the 2003 edition.)
Article: Obama and His Weatherman Friends
From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
March 6, 1970: "three members of the Weather Underground accidentally killed themselves in a Manhattan townhouse while attempting to build a powerful bomb they had intended to plant at a social dance in Fort Dix, New Jersey -- an event that was to be attended by U.S. Army soldiers. Hundreds of lives could have been lost had the plot been successfully executed."
"The bomb was intended to be planted at a non-commissioned officer's dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.
The bomb was packed with nails to inflict maximum casualties upon detonation."
2007 Fort Dix attack plot
A group of six radical Islamist men, allegedly plotting to stage an attack on the Fort Dix military base in New Jersey, United States, were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on May 7, 2007. They were subsequently charged with planning an attack against U.S. soldiers. The alleged aim of the six men was said to be to "kill as many soldiers as possible". Their trial began on October 20, 2008. 
Opening arguments were presented on October 20, 2008.
Assistant U.S. Attorney William Fitzpatrick said the defendants were inspired by jihad saying "Their motive was to defend Islam. Their inspiration was Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.
"Americas chickens... are coming home... to ROOST!"
"It was at the Chicago home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn that Obama, then an up-and-coming 'community organizer,' had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working 'only to educate' both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers."

Meet Obamas circle: The same old America-hating Left
"Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that's where it's really at"
--Bill Ayers (1970), quoted in New York Times, September 11, 2001:
Article: "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen"
"Dig It. First they killed those pigs [ie, rich people], then they ate dinner in the same room with them, they even shoved a fork into a victims stomach! Wild!"

Article: Obama's Foul Weather Friends
By Scott Swett and Roger Canfield
"As a gesture of solidarity, the Vietnamese who [Bernardine] Dohrn met in Budapest presented her with a ring made from an American aircraft shot down over North Vietnam. Bill Ayers would receive a similar ring while meeting with Vietnamese communists in Toronto. He later recalled being so moved by the gesture that he 'left the room to cry.' "
From the Chicago Sun Times, November 13, 2008:
Ayers: Obama was 'family friend'
New afterword to 2001 book, Ayers describes Barack Obama as 'family friend'
“Mr. Obama is the liberal law professor who campaigned against the Iraq war”
That’s right. Obama, the “liberal law professor” was against removing Saddam even when damn near everyone else at the time was absolutely convinced he had and would use WMDs. That fact alone tells you how dangerous this SOB is.
Absent the bøy's raging narcissism and denial, that inner knowledge would be a source of unending shame in the psyche of a normal male individual.
I just remembered something. Anyone recall the revelation a while back about how Obama makes decisions? He is supposedly given a multiple choice questionnaire about some issue. He then chooses from the 3 or 4 options his people have offered him. If this is true (the previous story from a while back), HE is doing a lot less than this piece implies.
In in his 2009 double biography Barack and Michelle (HarperCollins) former TIME contributing editor Christopher Andersen writes:
In the end, Ayers contribution to Baracks Dreams of My Father would be significantso much so that the book’s language, oddly specific references, literary devices, and themes would bear a jarring similarity to Ayers own writings. Even the caveat at the beginning of Dreams, in which Barack points out that he uses invented dialog, embellished facts, composite characters, inaccurate chronology, and pseudonyms to create approximation of reality, resembles Ayers defense of inaccuracies in. . .Fugitive Days . . .
His father, Thomas G. Ayers, was president, CEO, and chairman of Commonwealth Edison. He was also on the boards of directors of Sears, G.D. Searle, Chicago Pacific Corp., Zenith Corp., Northwest Industries, General Dynamics Corp. of St. Louis, First National Bank of Chicago, the Chicago Cubs, and the Tribune Co.
Bill Ayers is a rich man, a punk pretender to radicalism, he could renounce his trust fund any day he wishes... (crickets)
But his mouth only excuses his murderous ways, he is who he hates.
