Celebrates One Year Anniversary GUEST EDITORIAL Does Our United States Have a U.S. Drone Execution Program Now? by Sal Giarratani Last Wednesday, March 6 a, U.S. Senator Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, was holding forth his filibuster against John Brennan's nomination for C.I.A. director because he really cares about assaults on our Constitution. Paul asked Attorney General Eric Holder, does Presi- dent Obama have "the power to authorize lethal force, such as a drone strike against a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil and without trial?" The answer as Investors' Busi- ness Daily opined, "The plain simple answer is no, since it clearly violates the U.S. Constitution's Fifth Amend- ment due process protection." However, that wasn't the answer given by Holder which led Paul to use the filibuster against Brennan's nomination. Here's a great quote from the Attorney General of the United States, "It is possible, I suppose, to imag- ine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the Presi- dent to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States." The question was very important with all these drone strikes targeting U.S. citizens abroad deemed enemies of the state. The answer in return was quite uncomfortable. Since when does the president have the constitutional power to be judge, jury and execu- tioner? Think about it, if President George W. Bush had asserted he had the power to take out U.S. citi- zens here at home, how would liberals in Congress had reacted? How about the mainstream media? What if the quote attributed to Holder had been made by Attorney General John Ashcroft? (Continued on Page 14) Pellino's Ristorante is celebrating its first anniversary in business in the North End.

They also held a special tree lighting event at the Chri -----,'--" mas tree on the corner of Hanover and Cross Streets. The North End Beautification Committee is a commu- nity-based volunteer organization with a mission to pre ........ =.. serve, maintain and enhance the aesthetic integrity of this "- i 't historic North End neighborhood, with the hope of enrich- ing its beauty through creative and innovative enhance- +/,+: ments. The committee's future plans are to become a 501(c)3 and create a North End Improvement District that will be a collaboration of residents, businesses and the City of Boston. The mission is not to become a business improvement district but more of a partnership with the business com- munity and the City of Boston to help supplement the services the City already provides. The committee wants all parties involved and is considering membership fees to fund items such as added police details, clean-up and extra neighborhood maintenance. The North End Beautification Committee looks forward to sharing more information in the near future. WHY SHOULD YOU NEVER IRON A 4-LEAF CLOVER?
