"All Linky"

Ever wonder about the constraints our Constitution imposes on military action?

Don't worry.

It sounds to me like the internationals will decide on war and then inform the Congress. In that case there are no Constitutional restraints.

How much does it help to have a Justice say, "I Would Not Look to the U.S. Constitution”?

And what is the oath of office?

"I, _________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as _________ under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God."

They mouth the words. Do they practise the words?

It's interesting as well that last Monday, speaking at Northwestern University, Eric Holder affirmed Obama's contention that that he has the authority to kill any U.S. citizen that he deems dangerous. Holder elaborated, saying that an executive administrative review is all that's required.

So far as we know, three Americans have been subject to such administrative review during the past three years; all have been executed.
