Where Is the Outrage?

•, by Andrew P. Napolitano

For the past few weeks, I have been writing in this column about the government's use of drones and challenging their constitutionality on Fox News Channel where I work. I once asked on air what Thomas Jefferson would have done if – had drones existed at the time – King George III had sent drones to peer inside the bedroom windows of Monticello. I suspect that Jefferson and his household would have trained their muskets on the drones and taken them down. I offer this historical anachronism as a hypothetical only, not as one who is urging the use of violence against the government.

It seems to me that Mr. Rockwell's column would get a far more positive reaction from his readers if it explored the various ways drones might be brought down or rendered ineffective, should some unpatriotic soul think to do so.
