H.R.6010 To prohibit the extrajudicial killing of United States citizens, and for other purposes proposed by Rep. Dennis Kucinich and only five others. The bill seems reasonable…does the executive branch, and more probably intelligence branch of the executive branch, have the explicit permission to assassinate US citizens on its own authority, without review of Congress? Of course, we also know how cursory review by Congress can be, or secret its knowledge.
We have given ourselves the legal option of assassinating non-citizens at our discretion for awhile now, and it is increasing in scope, as well as rendition. I don’t find that reassuring somehow…is it supposed to reassure me about my safety?
