Death sentences without trial – a possibility for US citizens
Speaking before the House Intelligence Committee, Blair acknowledged President Obama is continuing what some say is a Bush-era policy authorizing the killing of citizens if they are considered a terrorist threat to the United States.
But as Wayne Madsen says, this policy is not only a breach of the Constitution, it leaves too much room for error.
“We've seen Dennis Blair going before Congress saying they have made a grievous error, when they didn't get the information on Farouk Abdulmutallab – the so-called “underwear bomber” – because somebody spelled the name wrong. What if somebody spells the name wrong here? They misspell – and the wrong American gets killed,” Madsen told RT.
