(June 25, 2014) Obama's Deeply Flawed Murder Loophole Memo Cites Israeli Law
The Obama administration was recently forced to release their secret Murder Loophole Memo, crafted by David Barron, which supposedly gave President Peace Prize the authority to kill U.S. citizens (abroad? anywhere?) without due process of law... or at least it supposedly gave him enough cover to claim he "thought" he had the legal authority to do so.

They had to release it so Mr. Barron could receive his pay-off, a seat on the bench as a Circuit Court judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.
It should be noted that Mr. Barron’s wife, Juliette Kayyem, is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, was the Assistant Secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs in the United States Department of Homeland Security, served as an appointee to the National Commission on Terrorism chaired at the time by one L.
