Napolitano: Obama Committed War Crime – FOX News Radio
Judge Andrew Napolitano condemned President Obama for the drone strike that killed Americans, saying “The president cannot summarily kill [Americans]. That’s a war crime!”
The Obama administration announced yesterday that it had accidentally killed an American doctor and an Italian aid worker, both held prisoner by al Qaeda, during a drone strike. But though the administration apologized profusely, Judge Andrew Napolitano interpreted their actions as wholly unconstitutional.
“I condemn, in words as strong as anyone can muster, the idea that the president of the United States can be judge, jury and executioner for any American,” he said during an appearance yesterday on Special Report with Bret Baier. “The Constitution expressly prohibits it, and we fought every single war against tyrants so that that type of unilateral power in the hands of one person, who now apparently delegates it to others, would ever come here.”
