  •  wait. i don't think you're thinking this all the (5+ / 0-)

    way through.

    no one is saying that Obama would even consider a drone strike like the hypothetical one.

    what the diary says is that the Obama Admin's policy and criteria would allow for it, which means that the Obama Admin has made it possible for ANY president in the future to do so - ANY president. and that's unfortunately accurate.

    i understand you trust Obama with that power, but we will not always have him or a Democrat or a leftie as president. and that scares the shit out of me.

    it's called unintended consequences, and these are big ones.
