Rush Limbaugh: Obama Drone Policy Means You Can Kill a Terrorist You Just Can't Waterboard Him
From Rush Limbaugh's Website:
Remember all the grief that George Bush got for warrantless wiretaps on phone calls? Do you remember that? I remember when Bush was president, the American left was literally having conniption fits.
Does that mean Nixon coulda killed Bill Ayers? It does mean that. Bill Ayers or the Weathermen. He had an active plot against the US, bombed the Pentagon. If Nixon had assumed the kind of power that Obama's assuming, he could have sent a commando team out to wipe out Bill Ayers. You can't kill rogue leaders. No, you cannot. By law, we cannot assassinate foreign leaders. We can now kill Americans, as long as we say they are related to Al-Qaeda somehow. And that link isn't too tough. Al-Qaeda hates America. All you have to do is hate America and it could be said that you are an associated force.
Remember all of the anger that the left had over waterboarding. And look at this now. I think I have this right. Constitutional scholar Barack Obama is demanding the right to kill American citizens without making his case to a judge, as long as he thinks the American in question is in an upper tier of operations of Al-Qaeda or a related group. But he can't waterboard the guy. You can kill him, but we can't waterboard him. We can kill the son of a..., but we can't torture him. Have I got this right? I think I do. I thought you should know.
