ACLU sues to represent cleric in Yemen
sourceOn Tuesday, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights filed suit in a federal court here, asking a judge to clear the way for a broader challenge to the military's use of "targeted killings" far removed from a battlefield.
"The government is targeting an American citizen for death without any legal process whatsoever, while at the same time impeding lawyers from challenging that death sentence and the government's sweeping claim of authority to issue it," said Anthony Romero, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union. "We don't think lawyers should have to obtain permission to bring a lawsuit against the government."
the issue is terrorists are civilians. not military. and the use of drones are to be banned. the ACLU is just after another tasty lawsuit settlement you and i have to pay for. nothing new there. I saw an interview on Fox last night with some dip shit attorney who supports this.
