Our government has a “No-Fly” list and a “Do-Not-Call” list — and now some unknown enterprising citizens have asked the White House to create a “Do-Not-Kill” list. Join us here.
It’s probably important for the government to have a “Do-Not-Kill” list; whether David Axelrod would ask the Assassination Czar Star Chamber to refer to the list is an open question. But elevating this question to the White House’s petition page might be one way to get this administration to admit — in some forum other than leaks to the New York Times — that meetings to assassinate US citizens do actually occur.
Here is the text of the petition:
Create a Do Not Kill List
The New York Times reports that President Obama has created an official “kill list” that he uses to personally order the assassination of American citizens. Considering that the government already has a “Do Not Call” list and a “No Fly” list, we hereby request that the White House create a “Do Not Kill” list in which American citizens can sign up to avoid being put on the president’s “kill list” and therefore avoid being executed without indictment, judge, jury, trial or due process of law.
