    So he had his due process. The Executive Branch said kill him when possible (on a Friday is best). The lawyers reviewed it and said, "Yes we can."

    War. Unlawful enemy combatant. Presidential Finding. Death. Sounds like everything was done quite nicely.

    Not while he is fighting for the enemy. Had he been captured then he might have had the right to be tried by military tribunal. None of that was necessary since we were not likely to capture him.

    We are too far apart to ever come together on this.
    We cannot prosecute a war if being an American citizen can shelter one from attack while being an unlawful enemy combatant.
    On this point I shall no longer respond. It would merely boor the others.

    He put on the uniform of the enemy and fought in their army. Just because it's not a conventional army of a nation-state doesn't bother me in the least. He chose to fight for the enemy. At that point, he's an enemy combatant on a foreign battlefield. Too bad, so sad for him.

    Had he been in the United States, I can see your point. He wasn't. He was with the enemy on THEIR side of the battlefield.

    It think it's pretty much a given that he did have it coming. That's not the issue.
    What's at issue is whether or not it's right for a govt to be allowed to execute citizens w/o due process.
    We're allowed to kill enemy combatants without due process. He signed up to be an enemy combatant. There's an occupational hazard that goes along with being an AQ operative.

    Should the drone have checked his passport and citizenship papers before detonating?

    So...

    Throw out the 5th amendment: Check
    Throw out the USC 1481: Check
    Throw out Habeas Corpus: Check
    Coming closer each day to a Authoritarian Government: Check

    Looks like the terrorist are winning each day to me.

    I thought we weren't suppose to become the people we're fighting. I thought we were better then this, sadly..we move to the point where will give up our everyday liberties just to be safe.

    I'm just somewhat sad at this entire thread.

    They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.




    Hopefully future historians won't be too harsh on us and may god have mercy to those who do not know what they do.

    I won't return to this thread so just ignore this post like everyone ignored our civil liberties.

    Read more: Some question president's power to kill a US citizen overseas - KansasCity.com !!

    Secondly, Al-Dirtbag was adjudged to be actively plotting to kill Americans !! Plotting right now, as in yesterday, today, and tomorrow, if he was still breathing tomorrow!! That makes him a valid military target, yesterday, today, and tomorrow, were he still upright !! Woooo Hoooo !!

    You have cited nothing. You have linked nothing. Are you a Duke Law Professer ? A Federal Circuit Judge ? Eh ?
    it matter not who or where the case was cited.... that case and this issue are not linked.

    we are not talking about valid military targets... if we were, i'd ask you to cite ROE for tacops in Yemen to back your claim.....we are talking about a Presidential hit list.


    I have given you enough information to check my facts.... that's all the citing you get from me.... I will not do your research for you, not now, not ever.
    and no, i'm not a duke law professor nor a federal circuit judge... i'm a retired Marine and business owner.
    if a retired Marine can discern that the case and this issue are unrelated, I think the duke law professor might want to entertain a change of careers...

    the federal district court judge you are speaking of, i assume , is John D Bates... and he dismissed this case because of lack of standing.
    not sure why you would bring him up...

    it wouldn't have mattered if they checked his passport... he was on the presidential assassination list.

    i'll repeat that again.. an American citizen was on the American president's assassination list.

    nobody knows what criteria gets you on the list.. nobody knows what evidence is utilized to support being added to the list...the list is not judicially reviewed...
    we just know that the President is allowed to have an assassination list that includes American citizens.

    He is a terrorist. He can now be one of Jeff Dunhams pals.
