    In order to lose his citizenship, it must be shown that the U.S. citizen joined the foreign military or swore allegiance to another state "with the intention of relinquishing United States nationality" -- a very tough standard. There's no evidence that Awlaki ever formally renounced his U.S. citizenship.
    He may have technically retained his legal citizenship...do you honestly believe he CARED about his constitutional rights? His citizenship? Or for that matter, yours? Or the rights of the men, women and children he comspired to slaughter. Oh...I bet he is just all broke up about the rights of beheaded teenage school children. When you have a threat...you eliminate the threat.

    You keep leaving the heavy lifting to the big kids. Maybe you can stick a few daisy's in someones rifle barrel. Meanwhile...the adults will continue to identify threats to the country and eliminate them. When he decided to become a terrorist and engage in threatening behavior towards the country, he made himself a target. Responsible people understand that. Candidate Obama got away with the warm fuzzy flower planter bull****...President Obama understands what is required.

    But...hey...I full on respect your commitment to your position. When are the hang Obama in effigy, Obama=Hitler rallies scheduled?

    So, you're saying we do NOT have the right to engage and kill enemy combatants in Iraq and Afghanistan? Rights are rights, according to you...

    Not directed at me, but we do not have the right to kill someone without bringing charges against them.

    In my America, I believe in the presumption of innocence. Unfortunately, many people are eager to flip this basic principle of liberty on its head.

    Just the ones that are not born in America. Apparently...the military should send someone to engage the American born terrorists with arrest warrants and ask them to come home to face penalties. I nominate the hippie peacenik types that think terrorists deserve constitutional rights.

    Stop being dumb. Yemen charged Al-Awlaki in absentia, and so can't the United States. Your implication that we have to serve him arrest warrant is most ludicrous.

    Yeah man...they charged him...THAT showed him! We eliminated him...I like the adult version much better. You can charge him like a Discover card...WTF do you think he cares about that? He was a TERRORIST.

    But...Im quite serious...you should volunteer to go serve arrest warrants to American Born terrorists. THATS how you fight terror! Thank goodness the adults are actually the ones tasked with dealing with them. Obama used to spout that kind of silliness. I am really looking forward to the movements to have him impeached for murdering an American citizen. Where do you stand on that again?

    Why do you struggle with the English language?

    What about absentia do you not understand?

    WTF are you on? It is not about showing anyone anything. It is about following the rule of law.

    Tell me why I am a daisy for wanting someone to be charged with a crime before the President orders a hit order on them. Tell me why I am a daisy for wanting to charge someone before we accuse them of guilt.

    Your "daisy" statement reminds me when you statists used lies in order to attack Barry Goldwater. You are just filled with lies and deceit.

    So you ARE in favor of charging the president with murder...right?

    You are a daisy because you actually believe charging homey with a crime was relevant to anything. I just REALLY REALLY want you and people like you to go out there and talk to those terrorists. Serve them with warrants. Give them a big ol hug. Save the world.

    Obama was like you while he could afford to be. He actually had to grow up and realize you kill/eradicate terrorists wherever and however you can.
