This is from the Lew Rockwell blog authored by Thomas DiLorenzo:
Sorry guys, but this “debate” [on whether US Citizens can be targeted by their own government] was ended more than 140 years ago when the U.S. government established the precedent of murdering hundreds of thousands of American citizens and imprisoning thousands of Northern-state political dissenters without any due process. In fact, neocons like Frum, McCain and Graham often celebrate this fact. I refer, of course, to the mass murder of between 350,000 and 450,000 citizens (according to new research) of the Southern states by the Lincoln regime. Lincoln never conceded that secession was legal; therefore, he considered all Southerners as U.S. citizens and orchestrated the waging of total war on them for four years. He was famous for his devilish experimenting with bigger and better weapons of mass destruction –the “drones” of his day– to be used on his own fellow citizens. He rewarded generals like Sherman and Sheridan for supervising the pillaging, plundering, murdering, and raping of Southern civilians during the “March to the Sea” and the burning down of the entire Shenandoah Valley after the Confederate Army had vacated it. For this the cowardly and barbaric Sheridan has been portrayed as a “great war hero.” And of course for doing this generations of state propagandists have deified Lincoln, memorialized him with monuments, museums, and Mount Rushmore, and perpetually urge every national politician (and all of the school children) to be more like him.
If I ran the education system of this nation, I would require every child in public schools to learn this truth. Thank the Lord that at this time, this nation could raise up a heroic historian like Prof. DiLorenzo.
