FBI director not sure if Americans can be assassinated on US soil

Did you miss this astonishing news from last week?

The director of the FBI, Robert Mueller, is unsure whether the U.S. government has the right to assassinate Americans on U.S. soil.

Fox News reports, March 7, 2012, that Rep. Tom Graves (R-Ga) asked FBI Director Robert Mueller whether the federal government has “the ability to kill a U.S. citizen on United States soil or just overseas.”

Graves’ question was in reference to the killing, via a drone attack on Yemen, of Anwar al-Awlaki last September 2011. Al-Awlaki was a senior al-Qaeda operative who had been described as “the bin Laden of the Internet.” Al-Awlaki was also a U.S. citizen living in Yemen.

Mueller’s response to Congressman Graves’ question was that he would have to “go back” and check with Obama’s Department of Justice. Referring to the distinction between domestic and foreign targeting, Mueller said, “I have to go back. Uh, I’m not certain whether that was addressed or not. I’m going to defer that to others in the Department of Justice.”

In fact, for more than a year and a half, the Obama administration has said it could target American citizens for assassination without any trial or due process. He even had written a memo on this — a memo that Obama steadfastly refuses to reveal.

And last December, both parties in both houses of Congress obligingly gave him legal cover with the passage of the abominable National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA), better known as the Indefinite Detention of American Citizens Without Trial Act.

Writing for ZeroHedge, March 9, 2012, blogger George Washington quotes top constitutional and military law expert Jonathan Turley [on C-Span]:

President Obama has just stated a policy that he can have any American citizen killed without any charge, without any review, except his own. If he’s satisfied that you are a terrorist, he says that he can kill you anywhere in the world including in the United States.

Two of his aides just … reaffirmed they believe that American citizens can be killed on the order of the President anywhere including the United States.

You’ve now got a president who says that he can kill you on his own discretion. He can jail you indefinitely on his own discretion.

I don’t think the the Framers ever anticipated that [the American people would be so apathetic]. They assumed that people would hold their liberties close, and that they wouldn’t relax …

Clearly, the Founding Fathers were wrong in their appraisal of the American people.

When news came of the assassination of Anwar al-Awlaki last September, some of us hooted and rejoiced. (See the comments on Steve’s post, “Ron Paul Says U.S. “Assassinated” US-Born al-Qaeda Terrorist“.) Now it’s coming back to bite us on the patootie.

Under the Obama administration, virtually any American can be considered a suspected terrorist, especially veterans, pro-2nd Amendment-ites, pro-lifers, conservatives, and Christians — according to a 2009 memo by the Dept. of Homeland Security.

No one is safe from being assassinated, abroad or at home.

  1. This makes me sick, especially with the voter fraud O’Keefe revealed in a different post here on Fellowship, what if people wake up and over 50% of people oppose Obama but he gets another term due to the fraud?!

  2. If the Director of the F.B.I. is not sure of himself or his ability to make decisions, who and what is doing this for him? Time to step down.

  3. Where do we get these Pukeums? This represents the fact that the President has had his guns turned on us for some time now.

  4. Again, thank you Dr. Eowyn for exposing the danger of our loss of liberty as a result of King Obama. This is what he is and what he perceives himself to be! Everyone, please wake up and smell the stench of this administration! We must vote him out of office!

  5. Just let Rush Limbuagh tick-off Eric Holder and we’ll see this decided…

  6. Mueller has sold his soul-

  7. Here’s what happened: ninety years of first movies and now TV, gave psychotics and sociopaths an idea that when they have enough power, they CAN do everything they fantasized about before. After all, s/he’s the Prez! [Read "Ideas Have Consequences" on this and much more!]

    Dr Erich Fromm said that people unable to authentically love will get into politics, where they believe they can MAKE people like/love them!

    Now do you understand why wackos are far too often found in politics? One doesn’t need a degree, or an IQ above 100, and above all, one doesn’t even need a heart. In fact, a caring heart would be a deficit. All one needs is a Satanic lust for control and greed. Describes 90% to a “T”, doesn’t it? And that stands for “Terrible” and rhymes w/”P” for Politico!

    Still don’t believe me: think Hillary Clinton, then look at recent photos of her descent into the Ninth Circle of Hell. Praise God, she used all her chances, and ain’t coming back!

  8. Can anybody say ‘Ruby Ridge’… This has been going on for a while…

  9. While I absolutely detest what Alaki, an American citizen, was doing – he wasn’t even chump-change compared to Saddam Hussein! Look what we did to that other Husein. We found him in his hidey-hole, took him into custody, cleaned him up and fed him, tried him in a Court of Law, found him Guilty and THEN executed him.
    All one of the Soldiers who found him would have had to do is twitch his trigger finger and we’d saved all that time and money! Can you imagine the defecation deluge that would have been heaped on Bush had we done that? But our Noble Leader not only approved the mission but BRAGGED about this cold-blooded murder – and promised the same to anyone who he or his cabal take a dislike to!

  10. Not sure this FBI goon could find his ass with both hands, a flashlight, verbal and written directions, and a twelve minute head-start.

    I would be surprised to find out his aim was good enough to spawn children.

    For the good of America, here’s hoping it wasn’t.

  11. Woodrow Wilson Speech:
    “Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the U.S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”

    Need I say more?

    • What’s far worse is that the situation’s become many times worse in the century since then, and always conducted as normality, the “business as usual” facade of the true psychotic killer mentality.
