Dear Mr. President:
In response to partial release of the Department of Justice memos describing the underlying legal justifications for the targeted killings of American citizens and others in the course of counterterrorism operations, we are writing to emphasize Congress’ vital oversight role in these matters. Every American has the right to know the underlying legal rationale that ensures due process.
Authorizing the killing of American citizens and others has [...]
Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) is leading a small group of House Democrats in calling on President Barack Obama to release information regarding the Administration’s use of drone strikes.
In a letter sent Monday, Lee said a leaked Department of Justice memo showed an “increasing devolution of accountability, transparency, and Constitutional protections in U.S. counterterrorism operations.” The 16-page memo provided an outline of the Obama’s administration legal justification of targeted drone strikes against U.S. citizens.

If Obama works with the United Nations and NATO against Syria and does not seek authorization from Congress for the use of the U.S. military, he may face impeachment, according to a resolution introduced by Republican Representative Walter B. Jones Jr.
“Expressing the sense of congress that the use of offensive military force by a president without prior and clear authorization of an Act of Congress constitutes an [...]
Are European G20 leaders correct in declaring there is too much debt in the world? Or is President ObamaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s team right in pushing for more stimulus? Who holds the real economic insights? Those who say we must borrow our way forward to recovery? Or those who believe a new day of financial austerity looms?
