Scahill - Libs Now in Assassination Business
Bill Maher asks the question - Did bin Laden have his way with the United States? Eric Michael Dyson and Jeremy Scahill give the lefty perspective.
Scahill then throws a zinger at the president.
“President Obama has made it acceptable now, for a bunch of liberals, the idea that targeted assassination is just the way we do business in the United States.”
The use of the word assassination is politically loaded and unfair. By most definitions, assassination includes the concept of murder, and murder means unlawful killing. Retaliating against an act of war by killing the enemy can hardly be viewed as unlawful killing.
