Meacham On Drone Kills: Obama Acting Like ‘American King’

” Barack The First? Wow: who would have thought that perhaps the strongest statement yet in condemnation of President Obama’s self-arrogated right to kill Americans abroad would have come from Jon Meacham?  Yet on today’s Morning Joe, historian Meacham—who knows something about the use and abuse of presidential power—criticized Obama for ignoring the “rule of law” and actually described Obama as acting like “an American king.”

Joe Scarborough seconded Meacham’s surprising statement, adding that had this come to light under George W. Bush, impeachment would be in the air.”
