The White House "kill list"--a regularly updated chart showing the world's most wanted terrorists used by President Barack Obama during kill or capture debates--may soon be getting a rule book to go with it.

Until now, President Obama has had the "final moral calculation" overseeing the "kill list," the existence of which was first revealed in May in the wake of a drone strike that killed an al-Qaida leader.

But according to the paper, administration officials are looking to curb the power of the commander in chief with the rule book:

I imagine that the executive branch is making rules that it wants to make. That is really some amazing accountability. /sarc

I think it is interesting to know that the person responsible with writing rules to “limit” Obama’s power to assassinate people works for.... Obama.

Is that because this Kill List belongs to a Nobel Peace Prize winner?

C’mon now, folks.

We're conservatives, we pay our own way.

Times are tough on a lot of us, but if you've got a job, really, $5 a month? You're going to miss that? How about turning off the lights when you leave the room? How about dropping the thermostat a degree while you're not at home? How about skipping that fancy pants coffee twice a month?

All we're asking for is $5 a month. Get out that wallet, input your Debit/Credit card #, set up a monthly and forget about it.

If this ham-n-egger can be a dollar a day guy, you can pony up $0.17 a day. Seventeen cents a day for all the time you spend on FR?

Cerainly, a bargain at twice the price, don't you agree?

You'll feel much better about your time on FR.

“...Obama has had the “final moral calculation”.

So, was Obama using his final “moral calculation” when he refused pleas for help in Benghazi and let 4 Americans brutally die at the hands of those sand monkey savages ?

Will this new “rule book” talk about NOT LEAVING OUR PEOPLE BEHIND?

OR, is this just another curtain for Obama to hide behind while pretending to be a leader..... when a REAL leader is needed?


**WHO in the hell gave the damn order to NOT rescue our men in Benghazi?**

Final moral calculation? WTF?

If the life is inconvenient, then you abort it. Why is this called moral?

Should be reworded as “the final political calculation”.

Good question.

"0bama has the Final Moral Calculation”.

Three Facts

Fact One:

1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.

Plus Fact Two:

2) No rescue mission was attempted.

Equals Fact Three:

3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.
