NO ENEMIES TO THE LEFT?

Our President claims authority to preemptively bomb potential terrorist masterminds.  That's not sitting well with some of his cheerleaders.
A confidential Justice Department memo concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed to be “senior operational leaders” of al-Qaida or “an associated force” -- even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S.
Credit Ed Schultz with bringing some of his usual chin-pullers to question the policy, and to wrap up the segment with an observation about how such an announcement from, e.g., George W. Bush, would rile up the anti-war Left.
