The President Thinks He Can Murder You
By Jim Babka

Quote of the Day: "Man has no right to kill his brother. It is no excuse that he does so in uniform: he only adds the infamy of servitude to the crime of murder." -- Percy Bysshe Shelley

A Justice Department white paper lays out vague conditions in which the President may "lawfully" murder American citizens. (PDF document)

2001's "Authorization for the Use of Military Force" (AUMF)  "justifies" this evil power.

Do you consent?

Rep. Barbara Lee introduced a bill to repeal the outdated AUMF. Join us in telling Congress to pass it.

You may borrow from or copy these comments.

The alleged 9/11 perpetrators are captured or dead. Why do we need the AUMF?

The President claims the AUMF gives him power to kill American citizens WITHOUT...

* Charge
* Trial
* Evidence the target threatens the U.S.

'The process of deciding who gets killed is top-secret. Even Congress doesn’t know the details.(http://wapo.st/YaiIkv)

Wouldn't you call a foreign leader who claimed this power a tyrant?

I believe in the right to self-defense against AGGRESSORS. But in civilized society, no one can take the law into their own hands to attack...

* merely SUSPECTED aggressors...
* anyone who doesn't pose an immediate threat, or...
* people with only alleged and vague associations with suspected aggressors.

Nor could I kill innocent people as "collateral damage" in my attack.

* Wouldn’t you call me a mass murderer if I did?
* How are the President's actions any different?
* How do you KNOW his targets are guilty of anything?

Repealing the AUMF strips the President of his legal excuse for drone murders -- against Americans or anyone else.

End this State criminality. Repeal the AUMF!

I will watch what you do. You are in a position to act. If you tolerate these crimes, you are aiding and abetting. You sacrifice whatever remaining legitimacy you claim to have.
