House Passes Ban on Drone Strikes Against US Citizens

Activist Post

An amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2014 that will ban drone strikes against American citizens passed in the House on Friday.


However, the amendment does contain an exception for Americans "actively engaged in combat against the United States".

Below is the full amendment:

SEC. 12l. PROHIBITION ON USE OF DRONES TO KILL UNITED STATES CITIZENS.  
(a) PROHIBITION.—The Department of Defense may not use a drone to kill a citizen of the United States.
(b) EXCEPTION.—The prohibition under subsection shall not apply to an individual who is actively engaged in combat against the United States.
(c) DEFINITION.—In this section, the term ‘‘drone’’ means an unmanned aircraft (as defined in section 331 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (49 U.S.C. 40101 note)).
The 2014 NDAA now heads to the Senate.

What difference will a law make? It seems to me that the feds do what they want. Moreover, murder is already illegal.

Too late. You can drive a truck through the exception part.

When they say, "Against the US", do they mean against the people of the US or the gubermint? Because there are people in the gubermint who, by definition of the exceptions stated here, fall under those Americans who should be droned. Are Americans who turn on the US doing so in self defense of a gubermint attempting to eradicate our constitution and bring tyranny into our lives? As more and more Americans wake up to the lies, deceptions, false flags, intimidation, manipulation and provocations our western gubermints engage in, the more clear it becomes that they consider anyone, anywhere will be labeled by their state controlled media as a threat to their power, and as such becomes an enemy of THEIR state. A diabolical state of corruption, control and tyranny.....

of course there is an exception... they lie so much through media and anyway possible why wouldn't they just make up a lie bout them being actively engaged in combat against them... with the media on there side, they can lie bout anything they want and unfortunately the masses would believe.

Maybe they should just pass a prohibition on killing US citizens extra judicially. Does it matter if it's a drone or a manned aircraft or a sniper?

There are always loopholes. They'll provoke Americans and when Americans defend themselves, then that will be used to justify using drones against people. The people are actually foreigners because the corporations are under Uniform Commerical Code and not under the Constitution of the united states of America that the people are under. The United States is a corporation.
