Kill List Exposed: Leaked Obama Memo Shows Assassination of U.S. Citizens "Has No Geographic Limit"

The Obama administration's internal legal justification for assassinating U.S. citizens without charge has been revealed for the first time. In a secret Justice Department memo, the administration claims it has legal authority to assassinate U.S. citizens overseas even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the United States. We're joined by Jameel Jaffer, Deputy Legal Director of the American Civil Liberties Union. "If you look at the memo, there is no geographic line," says Jameel Jaffer, Deputy Legal Director of the American Civil Liberties Union. "Now the Obama administration is making a greater claim of authority in some ways [than President Bush]. They are arguing the authority to kill American citizens has no geographic limit."

  1. In other words: Hypothetically speaking, If you are unbelievably wealthy and forfeit your United States Passport to move to Switzerland, or some other foreign country, because of crippling taxation under America's political elite,....The Federal Government can send a "drone" to destroy you with possible collateral damage to your family and friends...WHAT NEXT will befall America's Taxpaying Citizens living under, and/or escaping, this Presidential Administration's oppressiveness ?
