Lindsey Graham Urges Colleagues to Support Targeted Killing, Protect Obama From "Libertarians and the Left"

“If this ever goes to court I guarantee you it will be a slam dunk support of what the administration is doing. I think one of the highlights of President Obama’s first time and the beginning of his second term is the way he’s been able to use drones against terrorists.”

It’s odd that Graham would mention this “going to court,” as the leaked DOJ white paper that everybody’s talking about explicitly says, “[T]here exists no appropriate judicial forum to evaluate these constitutional questions.”
