This Isn't Hard, Mr. President: Do You Think You Can Kill Us on American Soil or Not?

• The Atlantic Wire
Does President Obama think that he has the power to kill American citizens on U.S. soil? If he accuses a guy in the Arizona desert or rural Montana of being an Al Qaeda terrorist, is it ever kosher to send a drone over to blow him up, as was done to Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen killed in Yemen? Or is it never okay to drone strike an American citizen to death here in the United States?

It's an easy question.

Answering it wouldn't jeopardize national security in any way.

So why do Obama Administration officials keep dodging it?

Did you ever watch maple tree seeds as they glide to the ground. They spin like little helicopters, and sometimes the breezes keep them aloft for hours.

How does that saying go about soaring with the eagles, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines?
