Questions about drones for Sen. Dianne Feinstein

Is it wrong to kill suspected al-Qaida terrorists? Sen. Dianne Feinstein thinks so. Your time would be better spent drawing up a questionnaire that they could fill out before setting off that bomb or cutting the heads off of Americans. What connection does she have with the ACLU?

Terrorists have rights, too? They are terrorists, for crying out loud. They are not heads of daycare centers, as they would like for you to think. They are out to kill people — men, women and children, and it does not matter who gets hurt — and you, Feinstein, are trying to stop the retaliation.

So what if they were U.S. citizens? They were not hiding out in the mountains or a training camp for a chess tournament. They renounced their citizenship when they took sides against us.

It would be great if you went there and asked them to stop their terrorist activities. I am sure they would listen to a Congress woman from California.

As chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, you intend to review proposals to ensure that drone strikes are carried out in a manner consistent with our values — or is that of your values? I think we are in trouble, Sen. Feinstein.

    I guess we all have our crosses to bear. Maybe if LNS would actually publish some dissenting views even once in a while, or did something to restrain a serial plagiarist and his non-stop insults, it wouldn't be necessary for me to rebut in an unconventional fashion.

    Everyday you have letters, it seems like 25% to 100% of the ones YOU PRINT are filled with the same disgusting views of our President and are filled with endless name-calling, labels, and lies. An impartial observer is left with the only explanation that the editor endorses and encourages the views expressed in them.

    It's your "private company" that allows the continual lies, half-truths, and misrepresentations by this poster who you fear deeply will call the ACLU if you do anything to restrain him. Or is it that you just agree with the refuse he steals and pastes here? Are you helping him?

    But you're a private company. You can do what you want. You don't need standards or rules of conduct and the ones you post at the head of every single comment area you are free to enforce or not.

    What ever.

    Comment removed because you manipulated a commenter's name to appear as an insult. Had you not done that, the comment would have remained.

    I thought the American system of criminal justice was supposed to be based on the idea that one is innocent until proven guilty. Now, not only are we guilty until proven innocent, but apparently, proof is no longer required.
