Legal experts expressed grave reservations Tuesday about an Obama administration memo concluding that the United States can order the killing of American citizens believed to be affiliated with al-Qaida — with one saying the White House was acting as “judge, jury and executioner.”
“Anyone should be concerned when the president and his lawyers make up their own interpretation of the law or their own rules,” said Mary Ellen O’Connell, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame and an authority on international law and the use of force.
“This is a very, very dangerous thing that the president has done,” she added.

"I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit.We are no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men." -- Woodrow Wilson 1919, reflecting on his signing of the Federal Reserve Act

Any of you who read this blog on a regular basis Im sure, have seen the crazy look that comes across peoples faces when you speak about Big Brother, Phone Taps, different types of surveillance the government uses on it's citizens...etc. They may find it hard to believe that their Government would mistrust them enough to invade their privacy, as a matter of national security. They fail to even ask themselves, or wonder "When did the American People become the enemy?", "They're supposed to be protecting US from the terrorists!" Yet it's OUR bags that are being checked when we board planes... WE'RE the ones who have to take our shoes off and walk through the X-ray machine or the metal detector. Every city is quickly installing cameras on every street corner they can think of. Who do you think they're watching??? Thaaaat's right, YOU! So then I ask you this...... WHO do THEY think the real terrorist is? And if they DON'T think WE are the threats then WHY are they listening in on our phone conversations, and reading our emails? I say those two specifically because I can see where the cameras all over the place can be a gift AND a curse.
