    And once again I ask: Just because an "enemy combatant," is an American citizen means that their rights go out the window? I have posted evidence of how legally speaking, Anwar al-Awlaki was still a US citizen at the time he was killed.

    he was a citizen
    and if our authorities were dealing with him other than militarily, those rights would be preserved
    however, as a member of our enemy he becomes a legitimate military target
    the cited memo makes that distinction clear

    City in Virginia Becomes First to Pass Anti-Drone Legislation - US News and World Report

    Charlottesville, Va., has become the first city in the United States to formally pass an anti-drone resolution.

    The resolution, passed Monday, "calls on the United States Congress and the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia to adopt legislation prohibiting information obtained from the domestic use of drones from being introduced into a Federal or State court," and "pledges to abstain from similar uses with city-owned, leased, or borrowed drones."

    The resolution passed by a 3-2 vote and was brought to the city council by activist David Swanson and the Rutherford Institute, a civil liberties group based in the city. The measure also endorses a proposed two-year moratorium on drones in Virginia.

    Councilmember Dede Smith, who voted in favor of the bill, says that drones are "pretty clearly a threat to our constitutional right to privacy."

    "If we don't get out ahead of it to establish some guidelines for how drones are used, they will be used in a very invasive way and we'll be left to try and pick up the pieces," she says.
    This is awesome.....now we just need the rest to do the same. Although some should start with some Tweets about Obama being Unconstitutional with this issue as well. Keep tying All those Unconstitutional moves he keeps making and keep using that word with the MS Media. Keep letting Obama hear it to.

    Wonder how those 8 Democrats feel now about Obama closing them off from getting any more info?

    So how was his kid a legitimate military target? They do have the time log when he left Denver to go to Yemen to look for his father. Sure wasn't in Yemen to long before he was taken out.....huh?

    What if the AQ guys were working undercover for the CIA? One never knows, do one?

    How about showing one piece of evidence to validate the kid was even tied to AQ? Uhm looking for one's father in a Country that one has never been use to.....might be a clue as to why one would be visiting shops showing a picture around. Learning whats up where one is at, talking to people who he discovered his father knew.....Right?

    Just some common sense things that would take place when one is looking for someone. Do you think there is a legitimate argument to throw Common sense out the window?

    don't think the military/administration is going to share with us information which might undermine the military/intelligence-gathering methods used to make that assessment
    but that does not prevent you from sharing with us the evidence which will prove he was not a legitimate drone target
