The AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION (ACLU) has told President Obama that he cannot legally kill Americans overseas based on suspicion and secret evidence.
Nevertheless, the President, who is supposedly a “constitutional lawyer” continues to maintain his imperial right to do so. It is the prerogative of his Majesty to ignore the Constitution, to short-circuit due process of law, in order to kill whosoever he chooses as long as it is in the cause of Empire, or so he says.
What should the American people do with a President who thinks he is above the Law? or one who violates the law and breaches his oath to protect the Constitution? The Constitution provides for Impeachment and the Nuremberg precedent provides for prosecution as a war criminal.
Although it is little noticed by American media, it is true that former President George W Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney cannot enter a number of nations, including some European allies, because there are arrest warrants issued in those jurisdictions for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity. Barack Obama may be the first Nobel Peace Prize winner who will be wanted for war crimes.
