This ACLU spokesman always hits his foot everytime he fires his gun.

ACLU Deputy Legal Director Jameel Jaffer should not use FOIA to compromise Government security operations and protect terrorist assassins like al-Awlaki born in the United States the Government killed in Yemen last September by using drones.

I am always entertained when liberal jokers like Jaffer argue their piece of meat in public. It is juicy for those who can laugh until the pit of their stomach aches.

For example, listen to Jaffer’s justification in his request to declassify classified anti-terrorist information the Government has to protect: "the public is entitled to know more about the legal authority the administration is claiming and the way that the administration is using it."

It is so stupid to say that the terrorists Jaffer is defending are entitled to know. He didn’t mean to say that "the public is entitled to know"… that’s a lot of bulls..sss.. …he meant to say that terrorists are entitled to know, and that’s obvious. Besides, Jaffer does not speak for the public – who authorized him to do that … to speak for me and in my behalf, to speak for you and in your behalf?

Furthermore, I already know the legal authority he is asking for, in fact the duty of the President, to get rid of terrorists, to protect our national security and the safety of the American people, which every citizen should know.

Again notice the absurdity of this ACLU joker, and his cerebral inanity: He wants "to know more about the legal authority the administration is using [in this case the legal authority of the President of the United States, a.k.a. the nation’s Commander-In-Chief in this war on terror] to kill terrorists before they can kill innocent Americans. This ACLU spokesman is supposed to be a lawyer, and if he is, he should have known several national security laws passed by Congress since the Patriot Act was signed into law, and lately when terrorists and terrorist suspects lost their right to due process under the NDAA. If he is not a lawyer, then he should cease and desist from acting as ACLU spokesman that embarrasses the nation in the eyes of the world.

Seems to me this so-called authority to kill U.S. citizens is a double edged sword.
