Burr must resign

Richard Burr called for a US citizen to be hunted down and killed.

Civil liberties groups raised concerns Monday about reports that U.S. Sen. Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican, had called in 2013 for the CIA to hunt down and kill an American citizen who’d become a top al Qaida operative, rather than capturing him for trial.

Muhanad Mahmoud Al Farekh eventually was captured and the government now can make its case against him and appropriately punish him if he's convicted.

That's how justice works for American citizens here in the US of A.

Unless Richard Burr gets to decide behind closed doors that you should be hunted down and killed.

Frightening

“It’s very disturbing . . . ,” said Jameel Jaffer, the deputy legal director of the ACLU.

It most certainly is. Very disturbing indeed.

Even more frightening

would be if this guy was chair of the Senate Intelligence committee.

Oh, wait.
