Most Americans are satisfied that last week’s killing of terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki was necessary. But Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul isn’t one of them, saying the move might be justification for impeaching President Barack Obama, Politico
The Texas congressman said during a Manchester, N.H., town hall meeting Monday that impeachment would be “possible,” and he wants to know more about how the administration “flouted the law.” The killing represents a move toward “tyranny,” Paul said.
“I put responsibility on the president because this is obviously a step in the wrong direction,” Paul said. “We have just totally disrespected the Constitution.”
Paul is the first presidential candidate to come out against killing the al-Qaida henchman.
