People are outraged that the president has assumed the authority to assassinate anyone he determines to be a terrorist, without judicial review or congressional oversight, and even if the target is an American citizen. But the constitution does give the president the power to prosecute wars, and wars do involve killing people. The problem I have is that Congress has declared war on terror, whatever the hell that means. Will this war continue until we — as Bolling says — sign a peace treaty with the Concept of Terrorism? Or has 1984 finally come true and we are now in a state of perpetual war?
