Why you shouldn’t let them get away with it


Because if you let them get away with it once, they’ll do it even worse next time.

President George W. Bush argued that the Authorization for Use of Military Force of September 2001 empowered him to take military action against those responsible for the 9/11 terror attacks. Now Obama is arguing that that same act of Congress empowers him to have assassinated even people who had nothing to do with 9/11.

Memo to the president: When even your predecessor’s lawyers are all, “Wait, you’re doing what?“, you might want to rethink your position.
