hang on tight
From that White Paper raaaacist justifying the POTUS [yes, kidz -- not just Teh iWon; look to the future] to use drones to blow American Citizens to greazy bits anywhere in the world if HE believes that they are Terrifying Terrorists™.
Though, apparently, waterboarding is still a Crime Against Humanity.
“It must be right that states are able to act in self-defense in circumstances where there is evidence of further imminent attacks by terrorist groups even if there is no specific evidence of where such an attack will take place or of the precise nature of the attack,”
…an exaggerated rewrite of the legal definition of “imminence,” something that the administration has labeled “elongated imminence.”
In dangerous circumstances an “Act in Self-Defense” is justified … for Teh State.
For You, not so much….
