I was in the nation’s capitol last week participating in a seminar on ideas for the country’s future, and listened to Supreme Court Justice Anton Scalia talk about the uniqueness of America.  He said most people feel the bill of rights makes us special.  But what really sets our democratic system apart, Scalia noted, are this three branches of government that are unique and that serve as a check and balance on any abuse of an individual’s rights and freedoms. So the question is, should the justice department have the power to make a unilateral decision to kill an American citizen?  Yes, a real bad American citizen was recently involved when a U.S. drone wiped him out in Yemen.  But who sets the rules of engagement?  Take a look at my new column now posted on choices that need to be made.  you can read it now by Clicking Here, or by hitting the red flashing box above.
