The President's Hit List Of American Citizens

Read emptywheel or Greenwald on Dana Priest's revelation of the existence of a list, two lists actually, of American citizens whom President Obama claims the right to target for assassination. This is so far outside the bounds of the Constitution's role for the Executive branch as to render Barack Obama not materially different from George W. Bush when it comes to matters of basic due process in accusations of criminal behavior. I admit I am easily spooked (ahem) on such issues, but this is the scariest thing I've seen since the Bush administration. And that's a strong statement.
