"Presidential Power"

Greenwald: “If the President has the power to order American citizens killed with no due process, and to do so in such complete secrecy that no courts can even review his decisions, then what doesn’t he have the power to do?”

What makes this assertion of authority so surreal is that there’s all kinds of stuff the President can’t do. He can’t get the Senate to pass his climate change bill. He can’t even get a vote scheduled on his OMB Director. After all, we’ve got checks and balances in this country!
