While Congress seeks to expand the mandate that provides unlimited power to the government, President Obama is taking a stand for the American people, for the Constitution, and for democracy.
During President Obama’s speech about the use of drones, there was a courageous woman who interrupted and demanded an explanation. It was none other than Medea Benjamin, Code Pink co-founder.
Paul's Preserving Freedom from Unwarranted Surveillance Act of 2013 bill is a good move ahead of the 2016 election. Will his position evolve if he does become president?
He is against a lot of things but has allowed all of them to persist.
Watch live as President Obama lays out U.S. counterterrorism policy. The president is expected to address drones, the targeting of U.S. citizens, and Guantanamo Bay in a major speech Thursday.
Senator Chambliss (R-Ga.), the vice chairman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, says in a statement, “The president’s speech today will be viewed by terrorists as a victory."
In a speech, which included open heckling, Obama also defended the drone program and defined the administration’s new comprehensive counter-terrorism strategy.
Code Pink's Medea Benjamin is not new to this.
