“It could never happen here (even though people are trying to make it LEGAL to happen here)” is a brain-dead argument, because that is the one belief that would actually ALLOW it to happen here.
Lindsey Graham, tell me exactly what would happen if Obama performed assassinations through the use of drones - especially if they were medical assassinations as it appears may have been the case with Andrew Breitbart. A drone shoots a heart attack dart at John McCain, down he goes, the coroner says it’s a heart attack. Then what? What exactly would keep this from happening in the USA, Lindsey Graham?
I’m going to have my female exam this morning. What gets found out there will go directly to the government. If they wanted to, what would prevent them from using that information to decide which carcinogen to put in a dart and deliver by drone? I’m not saying I think they’re going to do that to me at this point; I’m small beans. But the fact that the provisions they are making right now would allow this to be done WITHOUT ANY MEANS OF INVESTIGATING OR GETTING REDRESS FOR THE GRIEVANCE OF POLITICAL MURDER should be alarming to everybody.
The only way you make sure this can’t happen wholesale in this country is if you require the processes to all be transparent, specifically restrict access between the agencies/people who would have to work together on something like that, give people defensive capabilities to protect themselves, AND ensure that incorruptible law enforcement holds all the players accountable for murder if it would happen. IOW, there is no way to ever ensure that this could never happen. The only way to ensure that assassinations by drone would not happen in the US is if somebody immediately shot down any drone flying over the US.
The best defense against terrorism - whether it be by crazed gunmen (including teenage hoodlums), pre-meditated terrorist attacks, mafia, or corrupt government - is a population where any gathering of people (including in planes or other public transportation) is likely to have at least two people who are capable and armed with enough force to counteract the force of the terrorist (2 so that if one is hit immediately the other can take out the aggressor before any more lives are lost). But drones and medical assassinations are a whole different level of aggression because there may not be any way to know that the attack has occurred or to shoot down the attacker.
Our government would never attack their own citizens.
Well, maybe once in a while.
Waco and Ruby Ridge come to mind.
The fact that Holder wouldn't say "never" is all we need to know.
My kudos to Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Senators from Utah and Kansas. Marco Rubio snuck in also.
Who's being naive, Lindsey?
