The prospect of extrajudicial killings by the U.S. government is a departure from one of the touchstone intelligence restraints of the post-Vietnam era. It inspires strong qualms among some of those who have thought about it professionally.
"In my heart I am often for assassination, but in my head not," said Anthony Lake, Clinton's first national security adviser, reaching back toan Italian Renaissance family notorious for murder and fratricide for an analogy. "Until you can show me the firewall between those whose deaths you're positive would save a large number of lives, and those about whom you're not positive, then I think you're on a slippery slope to becoming the Borgias."

Since when are broadcast journalists allowed to call for the death of someone?
Obviously you don't watch Fox News....Do you know what I love about the media? The fact that because these arrogant reporters express their opinions and expect the people to listen and feel the same way, they think they are helping us and doing us favors. The media is the reason why t.v. rots your brain because your being fed lies and bull all day. Glen beck is a good example of this.
Turn off your t.v.'s and make your mind up based on your own feelings.
Percentage of households that possess at least one television: 99
Number of hours per day that TV is on in an average U.S. home: 6 hours, 47 minutes
In a 65-year life, that person will have spent 9 years glued to the tube.
