Again, Rush was joking. It was funny because it PARTIALLY rang true. Yes, the military has hit terrorists using drones in the last 16 months, but the justice side is mirandizing foreign enemy combatants and proposing to try them in civilian courts - things they're not legally entitled to. On the other hand, the Obama administration gave the green light to assassinate an American citizen. His actions - whether he intends them this way or not - convey that he is harsher toward home-grown American terrorists than he is toward foreign terrorists. There is humor in that, in part stemming from the anxiety the guy (Obama) instills.
