Nancy Pelosi: Obama can target Americans with drones and keep it secret

Dear liberals of San Francisco.  Please know that this is what you’re voting for every two years when you send Nancy Pelosi back to Washington.  

  • Continued undeclared wars
  • Drone strikes on Americans
  • Secrecy on top of secrecy

If this were George W. Bush, Nancy Pelosi would be calling for impeachment, but since we’re talking about Barack Hussein Obama, secret drone strikes on Americans are a-ok!

from Washington Examiner:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., believes that President Obama doesn’t necessarily have to announce that an American citizen suspected of terrorism has been killed in a drone strike.

“Maybe. It just depends,” Pelosi replied when The Huffington Post asked her if “the administration should acknowledge when it targets a U.S. citizen in a drone strike.” When Anwar al-Awlaki was killed in a drone strike, President Obama announced the killing within hours. “People just want to be protected,” Pelosi also said. “And I saw that when we were fighting them on surveillance, the domestic surveillance. People just want to be protected: ‘You go out there and do it. I’ll criticize you, but I want to be protected.’”

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, responded less blithely. “Anytime the government willfully executes a citizen, regardless of the circumstances, it is a very serious issue,” Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in a statement to The Washington Examiner.  “As the body that oversees executive branch actions, at the very least, Congress should have a full accounting – even if it must sometimes be in a classified setting – of the specific considerations that went into the decision.”

The top House Democrat suggested that the disclosure issue “depends on the timing, because that’s right — it’s all about timing, imminence. What is it that could be in jeopardy if people know that happened at this time? I just don’t know.”

There you go.  Liberals claim that they want “transparency.” They claim to be “anti-war.”  They claim they want “civil liberties.” They raised a huge ruckus whenever it was George W. Bush doing these things.  

Well here you go, liberals.  If you really stand for anything, prove it! You get to vote, and every time you vote for Nancy Pelosi we’ll know that you want more war, less liberty, and less transparency.
