 I have words. My grandma always said," lay down with the dogs, pic up fleas," Didn't Al Quida shot a teacher in the head recently because she was educating woman? Happened in Afganistan I think. You are an American citizen and you dance with questionable people, whether in the states or not, you are playing with fire and most likely will get burnt.

 My question is, while the teen may have been American, what was he doing in a building with 6 other men, who were suspected al-Qaida militants?

While part of me gets it because it saves American troops the other part of me knows this could be used here in the US and that he could pick Americans at random with no real proof. There is just so much going on right now giving the president carte blanche to do whatever he wants if HE declares an emergency or thinks someone is suspicious. I DO understand drone strikes for some purposes but there is TOO MUCH POWER in the whitehouse right now, period.

Not to point fingers, but there is precedence for this that predates Obama. I objected then and I object now. This is wrong wrong wrong.
