A lot of discussion about this very slippery slope. I fall on the side of Ron Paul and Michael Savage. Here’s why.
American militants like Anwar al Awlaki are placed on a kill or capture list by a secretive panel of senior US government officials, which then informs the president of its decisions, according to US officials.
There is no public record of the operations or decisions of the panel, which is a subset of the White House’s National Security Council, several current and former officials said. Neither is there any law establishing its existence or setting out the rules by which it is supposed to operate.
And on Tuesday, Congressman Ron Paul schooled Barbie Megyn Kelly on why this sets a very dangerous precedent. The discussion begins at the 1:55 mark.
