This White House is EVIL. If they can do this to Americans overseas, they can do it to Americans here in this country. They do not need reasons. There is no Due Process. They have no respect for the Constitution.

Where do we draw the line?

The accusations are utterly false. The U.S. Constitution explicitly authorizes the use of military force against U.S. Citizens engaged in belligerenciees as a member of hostile enemies.

During the Civil War, when Northern Soldiers killed Confederate Soldiers, were the latter considered American Citizens or not?

What were the specifics of the kill? Was he in the company of known terrorists?

I have no desire to excuse Bammy for anything, but would like to know more.

That being said, if an American, be it Johnny Taliban, etc. is operating with known islamic terrorists off U.S. soil, I don’t worry too much if they’re taken out.

On the flip side, it’s disgusting they’re letting Khaled Sheik Mohammed be put on trial. He should have been taken out and forgotten, long, long ago.

And back on topic, where is Code Pink, etc.?

Oh yeah, they only hated Bush when he was taking out terrorists.

Let’s put it this way... If Abdulrahman REALLY ( emphasis ) had no ties to terrorists and terrorist organizations, his family has basis for suing the government.

Simple justice tells us that our government cannot do this.

That is of course, up to the courts to decide based on evidence presented.

The question however is this — WHAT IF, Like Al-Awlaki, Abdulrahman DID help terrorists? Would it be illegal for the US government to target him?

Is there any particular reason I should give a crap about some teenager who was killed in a drone strike while hanging out with dad and his jihadi buddies in Yemen?

I am not sure that citizens in a war zone outside our borders can expect due process.

We can hardly set up a judge and jury system over there. It would require, among other things, that the suspected traitor be rendered out somehow, risking the lives of our troops.

If they are within U.S. borders, it’s a different story. But a war zone outside the U.S.? I think you take the risk, you take your chances. Otherwise how can we possibly wage war?

As for the 16 year old, I think his blood is on his parents or guardians’ hands, unless he had run off, in which case it’s on his own.

This is no different than a U.S. GI switching sides and deciding to fight for the Nazis in Europe. Once he’s made that allegiance he’s an enemy and fair game........

I'm sure the sycophantic state controlled media is reporting on this, like Watergate, 24/7/365.

I crack me up.
