Key Republican Senator Says The Drone War May Be Illegal...
No shit Sherlock...

President Barack Obama’s deadly drone war against suspected extremists, including Americans overseas, may not be legal, Sen. Bob Corker, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told Yahoo News in an exclusive interview. And, Corker said, the drone campaign may be creating more terrorists than it is killing.

The Tennessee lawmaker told Yahoo News Thursday afternoon that Obama should wait until after Afghanistan’s April 2014 elections to decide on the pace of U.S. troop withdrawal there. Corker also bluntly declared that he does not trust Afghan President Hamid Karzai and vowed to make sure the State Department carries out reforms proposed in response to the deadly terrorist attack against the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, last September.

The hour-long interview in Corker’s tidy Capitol Hill office came as the Senate Intelligence Committee grilled Obama’s nominee to head the CIA, John Brennan, over his role in expanding America’s controversial drone campaign...

He makes the point that "Assassinations" are illegal by law, and most of these Drone murders take place in "Non-battlefield" areas like Yemen, Pakistan...and perhaps the USA...

No matter, Congress has abdicated it's authority to declare war to POTUS for decades now...so Obama is of course claiming he can declare anywhere to be a "battle-field" even if we don't have troops there...

Congress has made the dictatorship that the office of President has become...shame on them, and shame on those that would abuse that power...
