    We should just assassinate people that threaten the president and get investigated by the SS. Thatd involve busting into dozens of thousands of republicans homes and perforating their bodies with bullets. That'd teach em.

    Its highly unlikely we could have sent a few police officers and lawyers to serve him an arrest warrant.

    Obama has been doing the right thing with prosecuting the war on terror. I hope whoever is next in the Al Qaida line of succession gives acceptance of said title a second thought.

    We could have this conversation. If you start a thread I will join it.

    I believe we have significant policy differences between us. I will not call you, or anyone else who begins with a policy difference a hypocrite. I ask that you consider the same rule.

    Given my starting position that we are in a war with Islamofascists and our target was part of the command and control structure he is a legitimate target. This was not a hit. This as a wartime killing, a decapitation.

    I believe you are beginning from the perspective that terrorism is a crime instead of a war tactic. Therefore you believe he should be apprehended, read his rights, given a lawyer and tried.

    Do I understand your position?

    Yeah, because we know that simply disagreeing with Obama means that we want to lynch him. Right?

    people who threaten to kill the POTUS are investigated by the SS. They are rarely arrested or charged.

    It's another example of the inability of the Leftists to see the big picture. Few--if any--of them have taken into consideration the possibility of awlaki launching a successful attack, while we were giving him his due process and making our selves look like we were playing fair.

    Maybe I did not explain well enough. If one believes that terrorism is a crime and not a wartime tactic then one's beginning point is similar to yours. He should have been apprehended, read his rights, given a lawyer and tried.

    If one begins from the perspective that this is a war then anyone, without regard to citizenship, who is in the war zone and who is a participant on the enemy side is a legitimate military target.

    This has nothing to do with due process. But this is my opinion. I could be wrong.

    The president isn't innocent? Also id rather domestic terrorists were met with a swat team.
    Also when they kidnap them in alot of countries they have islamic scholars educate them out of radicalism and they do quite often turn huggy hug and nicey nice.
