Ron Paul: US Could Target Journalists For Killing
By The Associated Press
October 05, 2011 "AP" -- Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul is warning that the United States could kill journalists in the same manner it targets terrorists.
The Texas congressman said Wednesday that it's not a far leap from the United States killing suspected terrorists in Yemen to targeting reporters at home.
Paul says President Barack Obama was wrong to approve the killing of two American citizens who had become central figures in al-Qaida. He warns that the United States could go further as it ignores civil rights and due process.
Paul says that the U.S. cannot let the deaths of Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Kahn go without protest, otherwise the country will start adding reporters to its list of threats that must be taken out.
