" PRESIDENT OBAMA has refused to tell Congress or the American people why he believes the Constitution gives, or fails to deny, him the authority to secretly target and kill American citizens who he suspects are involved in terrorist activities overseas. So far he has killed three that we know of.
Presidents had never before, to our knowledge, targeted specific Americans for military strikes. There are no court decisions that tell us if he is acting lawfully. Mr. Obama tells us not to worry, though, because his lawyers say it is fine, because experts guide the decisions and because his advisers have set up a careful process to help him decide whom he should kill."
From Rawstory: "House Minority Leader John Boehner has posted an alarming new video on his YouTube page that includes images of the Pentagon burning on Sept. 11, 2009, and implications that the Congressman, or those who created the video, support torture techniques used on terror war prisoners during the Bush administration."
Note that Sept. 11, 2009 should have read Sept. 11, 2001, but I've quoted Rawstory verbatim, errors included. They or may not correct it soon.
I've struck against this very eloquent research report about the real opinions of the Europeans towards the European Union:
The main facts from the last year research made by the British think-tank OpenEurope, conducted in all member states of the European Union:
1. On the average 41% inhabitants of the Europe have thought, that the E.U. should have LESS powers than it already has, and another 23% of the cake think, that the E.U. powers should remain as they are - i.e. 64% of the E.U. member states citizens positively don't wish anything like the proposed Lisbon Treaty (-a new treaty almost completely based on the text of late "euroconstitution", refused in referendum in France and Netherlands - but of course: the pro-E.U. politicians fraudulently keep saying it is not true).
- And there are in this regard much more obstinate nations, than Irish (who recently refused the many powers transfering Lisbon Treaty in the referendum). The list is led by Finnish, Austrians, Swedish and British. Irish in fact are far beyond them - much less sceptic.
