The Orwellian U.S. courts

Black is white.  War is peace.  Non-compliance is compliance.  Concealment is disclosure:

A federal judge on Wednesday dismissed most of two lawsuits seeking disclosure of US government documents related to the Obama administration’s claim of legal authority to order the killing of American citizens overseas….

At issue was whether the administration would be ordered under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to disclose to the public legal memos written by government lawyers defending the targeted killing of US citizens overseas who were suspected of involvement in terror operations.

“This Court is constrained by law, and under the law, I can only conclude that the Government has not violated FOIA by refusing to turn over the documents sought in the FOIA requests,” McMahon said.

She added that the government thus could not be “compelled by this court of law to explain in detail the reasons why its actions do not violate the Constitution and laws of the United States.”

Got that?  The Government has not violated FOIA by violating FOIA. That is, if nothing else, a violation of Aristotelian logic.  The fact is that regardless of what the captive courts declare, the Obama administration has absolutely no authority to order the killing of American citizens without trial or due process, overseas or within the borders of the States. The fact that the courts are too corrupt to even hold them accountable is further evidence of the ongoing decline of the United States into historical irrelevance.
