WASHINGTON (Reuters) - American militants like Anwar al-Awlaki are placed on a kill or capture list by a secretive panel of senior government officials, which then informs the president of its decisions, according to officials.
There is no public record of the operations or decisions of the panel, which is a subset of the White House's National Security Council, several current and former officials said. Neither is there any law establishing its existence or setting out the rules by which it is supposed to operate.
The panel was behind the decision to add Awlaki, a U.S.-born militant preacher with alleged al Qaeda connections, to the target list. He was killed by a CIA drone strike in Yemen late last month.
The role of the president in ordering or ratifying a decision to target a citizen is fuzzy. White House spokesman Tommy Vietor declined to discuss anything about the process.

Where has this Obama gone?? From Headline grabbing critic to headline grabbing record setting Deficit Spender.
Wow! What a turn around.
Give Barack Obama points for consistency: he has always blamed Bush for the economy, even when it was humming along. In April 2003, Obama, then a state senator, attacked George Bush’s “attack on working families.” He called on Bush to “fix up the economy first” before he did anything else, like tax cuts. (Chinta Strausberg, “Obama to Bush: Fix up U.S. Budget First,” Chicago Defender, April 15, 2003).
Oh the irony of the the "spin masters"
Given the bad economy in 2003, Obama predicted that Bush would only be re-elected thanks to his “spin-masters, who are very good on focusing the public's attention on the war in Iraq, and they will do their best to keep the focus away from the economic disaster that is occurring in our communities.”
Obama suggested that Democrats make a “clear and convincing case for an alternative economic strategy,” a foreshadowing of how he would be different.
In May 2003, he continued his attack on Bush and called on the Senate to "resist" Bush's "unprecedented $300 billion deficit," which, he alleged, was retarding growth. ("Obama Urges Congress to Resist $300 Billion Deficit," Chicago Defender, May 14, 2003). His attack made front-page news in the Defender, one of the main African-American newspapers in the city, as he prepared for his run for the U.S. Senate in 2004.
Obama must be using those same "spin masters" he criticized Bush for using.
I'll just leave it at this. Obama's own words say so much and yet his actions speak far louder. How would then Senator Obama criticize the spending of now President Obama?? Oh to wonder???
The $300 billion deficit, he said, "underscores the recklessness of the George W. Bush administration and the Republican Congress."
But Obama was wrong. Instead, the economy expanded for thirty-five straight months. While Obama attacked Bush’s $300 billion deficit, today, Obama’s deficit is $1.8 trillion, an order of magnitude larger. Thanks to the Bush tax cuts, the economy boomed and unemployment reached a trough of 4.4% in March 2007. In fact, Obama’s unemployment rate has been far higher than—and sometimes double—Bush’s.
And this chump thinks he "deserves" a second term to get things right.....
Remember all you Breitbart haters.... This story and all quotes originated from the Chicago Defender newspaper.

NJ Mom Arrested and Guns Confiscated After Speaking Out at Public Meeting
(visit the link for the full news article)
Eileen Hart and her husband, Keith, are property owners in Newfield, New Jersey.
On Saturday, March 9 there was an informal meeting at the Gloucester Community Center, to discuss the findings on “revaluations” by Appraisal Systems, Inc.- a company which has been contracted by the state of New Jersey- to assess the fair market property values for each county or borough- for the tax assessor’s offices.
There has been much derision caused by these “revaluations” by homeowners, because property values have fallen dramatically- and the real estate market has been hit very hard .
There is nothing “fair” about the market or the home values that have been assessed, according to many New Jersey families.
Ms. Hart attended the meeting, armed with- as she said “her Constitution and the facts.”
