Read the Memo Explaining Why the U.S. Can Totally Kill Its Own Citizens Without Trial

• http://www.slate.com, By David Weigel
 I don't quite want to throw up my hands and just say "read Greenwald," but the man slings words by the barrel and he explains most of the moral queasiness-inducers in the memo. The political context to view this in is that a growing (but small) number of liberals and libertarians, led today by Jeff Merkley and Rand Paul, want to pass resolutions that restore the power to declare war to Congress. Ending the authorization of military force (or, as Paul and Merkley want, requiring a new authorization from Congress for further action in Afghanistan) would complicate the legal kludging in this memo.
