OBUMMER DRONEOLOGY: THE LAW

Well today Tubularsock was sitting and thinking. If I was a lawyer and Obummer came to me and ask me to put together a legal justification of his drone program based on law, how would I do that.

What law could I find that would give the U.S. the authority to fly over the air space of any country (with or without their permission) and blow anyone to bits without those pesky other laws about due process, trial by jury, innocent until proven guilty ……. you know, those laws that make us a nation based on laws and not based on the whims of men. Kind of like being civilized rather than barbaric.

Now I could go to international law as my base but what set of laws, that nations have signed and agreed to, fit being able to fly over the air space of any country (with or without their permission) and blow anyone to bits?

Well without an ACT OF WAR there aren’t any. Now within the “RULES OF WAR” there are guidelines for flying over the air space of a country that has already attacked  our country and blow anyone to bits but even there there must be actions taken to avoid civilian causalities (collateral damage). Like we really care.

And in order to fly to that country and bomb the hell out of them we have to get permission from any country that we have to fly over so we can pass through their air space to bomb our new enemy.

So maybe following U.S. law could be the base to work from so as to fly over the air space of any country (with or without their permission) and blow anyone to bits. Let me see here …………  well by jove, there is not a single one. DAMN CIVILIZED OF US! Don’t you think?

Well maybe Biblical Law. And I’ll focus on the Old Testament. Those bastards loved slaughtering each other with great zeal. Maybe like …….. an eye for an eye …….. nope!

To base having the authority to fly over the air space of any country (with or without their permission) and blow anyone to bits the person you are blowing to bits FIRST has to take your eye THEN you take his eye. You can’t take his eye unless you can justify he has done it to you!

But don’t you even fret for one second. Tubularsock has an inside track. Obummer wouldn’t hire Tubularsock the lawyer if he didn’t think I could pull it out of the hat.

I would call up my good friends Jay Bybee and John Yoo. Because when you have to pull law out a hat Bybee and Yoo have the ability to pull it straight out of their ASSES!

 

You remember Jay & John ………. they came up with the new legal INTERPRETATION

which by changing the name torture to enhanced-interrogation all’s good!

So …………….

My job is over  ………

Legal interpretation:  it doesn’t exist because there are no laws for it

Now I turn it over to the White House Public Relations Department (WHPRD).

They create the words to explain the Legal INTERPRETATION.

Then they hand it over to James Clapper, the Director of the U.S. Intelligence to explain the new INTERPRETATION in  James Clapper’s “least untruthful” terms.

And finally, Obummer gives his speech on how transparent the entire process is and all the necessary legal checks and balances are in place for our safety so we can fly over the air space of any country (with or without their permission) and blow anyone to bits.

Wow! Now we are safe.

Anyone for golf?

    Or you could have private contractors like Booz Allen provide critical software and hardware to our “allies” in the Middle East. Then, when you need a favor it’s just a phone call away…http://powerofnarrative.blogspot.com/2013/06/intelligence-corporatism-and-dance-of.html

    Nice shout-out to John Yoo, haven’t heard his name lately. I wonder which rock he crawled back under? Probably working for Goldman Sachs. Good stuff, tubular.

      Thank you, Jeff. And thanks for the link. Most intriguing,indeed! It is always amazing how the U.S.is so concerned about “cyber-warfare” but then we team up with fucking Israel and do a cyber-attack on Iran. And then Obummer tried to lecture China. Life is a reflection. And John Yoo the last I heard is teaching “law” at UC Berkeley and Bybee is a “respected” judge. So the bottom of the barrel is well represented in the legal system.

    Well, Tube – I think you’re on to something.
    Maybe a little humane flogging would bring some of the drone aficionados to there senses.
    So yes, golf, indeed! Clever of you dude to spell flog backwards like that.
