The lawyers were asked at a national security conference Thursday about the CIA killing of Anwar al-Alwaki, a U.S. citizen and leading al-Qaida figure. He died in a Sept. 30 U.S. drone strike in the mountains of Yemen.

The government lawyers — CIA counsel Stephen Preston and Pentagon counsel Jeh Johnson — did not directly address the al-Alwaki case. But they said U.S. citizens don't have immunity when they're at war with the United States.

Johnson said only the executive branch, not the courts, are equipped to make decisions about who qualifies as an enemy.

Signed. If for no other reason than to "stand up and be counted". Congress won't give a shit. I knew that when I signed it. What will happen when someone walks by will be that they see one more person who potentially is ready to smile broadly as a senator stares down the business end of a 12 ga. at point-blank range as the 00 Buck slugs come flying through his face and out the back of his skull before he goes to meet his maker.......

We're coming, and they know it.

  Numerous attacks made in such a way so as to be out of reach of any reasonable defense have been occuring. Bank dereg, oil well in GoM, 9-11, CIA-Evergreen Airline doing chemtrails just before HAARP zapping the target location with a few billion watts of radio waves, Wall Street fraud and the U.S. taxpayer bailouts of European genetic slag inbred drone royalty to accomplish recolonization by trading hard earned dollars for baseless European butt-wipe. Each conveniently out of our reach to conveniently stop. Wall Street derivative crooks are taking what is left. Soon we will be penniless. We must dump the fed soon.

Every site on the net has at least one baboon insulting to every other poster . We can read them with analytics applied, and know they are not as OWS 99% respectful nor understand what this is all about. Remember, sewing discontent is an artform in mondthink ops. WE SEE YOU...

Read the book on what is really occuring here. FM34 , wikkipedia can give you the links. Read it, learn it, look around, see if you recognize the manuel in action.

If you are a veteran or active duty, you know your course by the oath you swore. First, take care of you, second, take care of the Constitution, third, take care of the Army . (or other branch) The all inclusive services are meant to be a strength . Well  armed millitia is our last line of self defense.  Be Safe, Be Strong.

Easy fellas. Let's not make enemies of each other. Seems the enemies of freedom increase daily. Don't make it any easier for them to win by fueling dissent amongst yourselves.

I have signed plenty of petitions as well. I have done it all; protesting, sign waving, phone banking; and probably a few things you wouldn't believe. I still think Yoda said it best, "The force is for knowledge and defense. Never for attack." And make no mistake, we are a f%ckin force.

Stick with peaceful solutions and when they start shooting, shoot back. The general public are dumb, but the movement is strong. Let's be objective, stick to realism, and get it done. It's not that hard anymore. All of the Infowar veterans have already done all the hard work. All you have to do now is get off your ass and stop complaining.

   Remember not to go armed wearing cammies and marching in a straight line. stay single and evasive. and make them waste energy if they want to violate your civil rights. The only war going on in America since before 9-11 is the war on the law abiding citizens by murderous racists and pedophiles loyal to Britannia and the Bush criminal cabal. It has ALL been jail-house sucker punching so far. They have no skills beyond treachery, nor ANY friends that they did not buy. Congress has decided to side with the criminals to collect more bribes and a place in the sun through looting YOUR ACCOUNTS. No brains, no class, and no balls.

  If any military personnel out there feel the Bush cabal is your friend, and you want a chance to betray your country for English royalty and The City of London, I want to hear from you.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if they are going to pass a pos bill like this, what makes you think that they will care what the American people have to say?

Do you really think that these Senators don't know the implications of the vote they are taking? Isn't that what they have staffs for, if they are not sure? Isn't it the job we are paying them for, to know what the hell it is they are voting on?

I think the answer is Yes to all three questions!

There is ONLY ONE WAY that this is going to end; and that will be a very sad day, indeed! The Patriots in this country have been arming for decades, many for just this sort of an event, and now these treasonous bastards are forcing their hands! There is NO WAY we will stand for this in this country!

Just remember occupiers, they will come for you either right before us, or right after us; but one way or another, they are going to come for anyone who has the balls to stand up and protest their actions! And, I would venture to say, those who have been the loudest, will be the first to go!

I hope you all have put together food and water, ammo and weapons, and have made contact with your local militia! Because, if you have no recent military training with others in a specific group, then you are already very dead! When they come, they are not coming alone, and nor are they coming with just a couple of folks! They are coming en-mass, and they will not be playing! Just imagine if the police were given the green light to subdue the OWS protestors using any means necessary, with no penalties for their actions! That is what we will all be facing. So, if you intend to stand, then realize that you may not come back from such an encounter; and make your peace with that fact.

Good luck Americans!

In the Spirit of Liberty,

   Citizens don't want rebellion. They want GRAVY!  Waimea! The chance to spit on Jesus as he carries the cross up the hill. The CFRtv provides plenty of that.

  Internet news is nipping at the heels of many treasonous congressmen for aiding and abetting before the fact by many members of the U.S. Senate. Since the U.S. Senate refuses to say OUTLOUD AND IN PUBLIC WHO REALLY DID 9-11, they are ALL guilty of treason. We know. Israel loaned out some merceneries as tertiary level participants. Cui bono? The CFRtv also is guilty of aiding and abetting, before and after the fact. Who are they? PP and D. Rocky are caught butt-naked. So are many others. Can we get some lawmen to evaluate this and make arrests instead of taking the chicken bully way out by turning on law abiding citizens coming after the justice for the people of this country. Did you all gain positions in law enforcement to get crowd control tools to use on your wives and children?

This is so wrong.

Senator Lindsey Graham is not a legally appropriate spokesman for the Federal Government as he is still abiding by the undeclared Cheney/Bush wars on Americans. Somewhere along the last century We the People have been disenfranchised from our own Nation. The Corporate and Millitary takeover is facillitated by the Congress and the other two branches of Federal Government. In doing so the Federal Government has also become an illegal Racketeering Influenced Criminal Organization. The only hope for a pushback lies in between Civil DisObedience and the Vote or full out uncivil war. Disunity and Chaos soon coming to a neighborhood near you !
