From a comment about this article: "Perhaps nothing is truly shocking anymore. But there should not be any more articles analyzing the assassination controversy without noting that the US government was caught red-handed in the 1970s engaging in political assassination in the United States, nor without noting that “terrorism” was directly organized by government agencies.

Attorney General Eric Holder recently gave a speech in which he said the U.S. military can execute American citizens without trial, because “’[d]ue process’ and ‘judicial process’ are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security.” Holder added, “[t]he Constitution guarantees due process, not judicial process.”Read more »

Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has been taken from a Kiev prison to ‘a remote prison colony’.
Tymoshenko was woken up during the night on Friday without explanation, carried to a police vehicle on a stretcher, and transported to a prison colony in the city of Kharkiv.
All news agencies are saying authorities are all “unavailable for immediate comment.”
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. Officials in a position to comment are saying that Awlaki is the only US citizen assassinated after being placed on a hit-list by this US government panel “to the best of their knowledge.” Note they are leaving themselves wiggle-room.Read more »
Without evidence, charges, trial, or due process, President Obama has ordered the murder of an American citizen based on allegations of ties to terrorism. Congressman Ron Paul and Judge Andrew Napolitano blast this latest step down the road to tyranny. It's no longer a stretch to imagine this power being used to remove political opponents or those who criticize the government or who voice dissenting views.Read more »
"In a time of rigged voting machines and rule by decree, a time of military tribunals and tortured defendants, the concept of evidence and accountability is a joke. Consider the current bin Laden farce what it was intended to be, the American government reminding its people and the people of the world how little respect it has for them."Read more »
