Judge Napolitano: Once We Have More Info on Drone Strikes, Voters Can Make an Informed Decision About Whether They Want a President Who Kills People
Judge Andrew Napolitano joined Jamie Colby on Happening Now to weigh in on the ACLU's lawsuit against the U.S. government over the CIA's use of drone strikes against suspected terrorists overseas, including some American citizens.
The Obama administration has
refused to turn over documents in the case, saying the information is sensitive to national security and therefore must be kept secret.
Judge Napolitano said the drone strikes are "profoundly unlawful (and) unconstitutional," and supports the release of the documents.
"They believe that somehow, from some source other than the Constitution, that (the president) has the power to do this. ... The more we know about it, the more voters can make an informed judgment as to whether they want a president who kills people and claims he can get away with it," said Napolitano.
