How about Abdul Rahman al-Awlaki, a 16-year old American killed by drones? Is that the way we treat a 16-year old American? Why was he killed? Can you tell us why Abdul Rahman al-Awlaki was killed? Can you tell the Muslim people their lives are as precious as our lives? Can you take the drones out of the hands of the CIA? Can you stop the signature strikes that are killing people on the basis of suspicious activities? Will you apologize to the thousands of Muslims that you have killed? Will you compensate the innocent family victims? That will make us safer here at home! I love my country! I love the rule of law! The drones are making us less safe. And keeping people in indefinite detention in Guantanamo is making us less safe! Abide by the rule of law. You are a Constitutional lawyer!

Medea Benjamin, political activist and co-founder of Code Pink, interrupting President Obama during a speech on national security. May 23, 2013.

To which Obama replied, “The voice of that woman is worth paying attention to.  Obviously I do not agree with much of what she said, and obviously she wasn’t listening to me in much of what I said.  But these are tough issues and the suggestion that we can gloss over them is wrong.”
