Who cares about tedious trials when you can just drone that shit?
The President of the United States can order people eliminated who are not convicted of a crime nor located in a country the U.S. is at war with.
Ultimately it appears, he could also order a missile attack on the house I live in, located in peaceful Denmark, if my neighbor was suspected of terrorism.
It has recently been a topic for political discussion in Denmark where I live, following an episode where a danish agent assisted CIA in locating a terrorist, who was later killed in a drone attack.

Watched the Morning Joe clip despite my initial reluctance since it's MSNBC.
"Blending of law enforcement and warfare since the attacks of 9/11" sums it up perfectly. All we can hope for is to get an unambiguous explanation from The President that indicates a very clear change of policy. If that's not the case, I see no good reason to support his further actions in defense.
Since that's not the definition of "indiscriminately" which means "for no reason", no, the president can't.
Oh, I guess the President could run around calling everyone who looks at them funny a terrorist, and I'm sure you think Obama is just itching to do that, but that doesn't make it any more plausible.
Short answer: Yes they can, they always have, they just don't.
And thus I give you: MALE contraception!
I guess you didn't learn that from your Lamestream Media.

I come from a time and a place where I judge people by the content of their character; I don't give a damn if you are tall or short; gay or straight; Jew or Gentile; White, Black, Brown or Green; Conservative or Liberal. -- Note to mods: if you are going to infract me have the decency to post the reason, and expect to hold everyone else to the same standard.
Here's part of what they do. They turn the person upside down with a rag over their head pouring water in their airwaves for the person to seem like their drowing. They keep the people up off and on. Sometimes they tie the person up then allow the dogs to attack them. This type of things are supposed to be banned. It's a violation of international law. Yet we still did it.
I'm not personally pleased we fly drones in the sky from story's I read they killed a 8 year old boy the son of American Terrorist just like that. How was he pose a threat to our security. This exactly why Congress is supposed hold hearings so it doesn't happen. President Obama had the option of forming a hearing when he first started his term but decided not to.
Yet people cannot be quiet about Benghazi which claimed four Americans life. But they were find invading middle east and upsetting the people there by torturing them. It just plain and simple does not make any sense.
On topic I would say no if we are talking about presidential affairs. Truthfully we need to stop defining ourselves by the political party we seem to vote for and by who we are not by Republican or democrat.

Since when is terrorism an act of war and not criminal behavior?
We have a war on drugs too. Does that make drug trafficking an act of war?
