Question of the Day: Are You Terrorist?

Chilling news from the New York Times: “Obama administration lawyers have asserted that it would be lawful to kill a United States citizen if ‘an informed, high-level official’ of the government decided that the target was a ranking figure in Al Qaeda who posed ‘an imminent threat of violent attack against the United States’ and if his capture was not feasible, according to a 16-page document made public on Monday.” As someone who watched the Left demonize Tea Party activists as proto-terrorists and insurrectionists (after the Gabrielle Giffords attack), and as someone recently labelled a terrorist, I wonder: is that where this is going? If so, private militias better check their six. They’ll be the first to go. Or maybe the last. Your thoughts?
