No basis in law for drone ruling

The US Justice Department has outlined its justification for why President Obama can order drone killings of its citizens. This power has no basis in federal law, or in the constitution.

These new powers, I feel, are alfuelled by fears of unrest and from repercussions of forced disarmament of US citizens.
