    all that opinion did was make a legitimate enemy combatant a legitimate enemy target
    those traitors do not get protected any longer only because they were fortunate enough to be made in the USA

    Yes and when the government decides that protesting against it is justification for a drone strike, screw the protestors right? They shouldn't be protesting if they know what's good for them right?

    The US operates drones with the host government's consent.

    I have never understood obamas duplicitous policies on terrorist. If we catch one they get a trial and are afforded all the rights of a criminal that held up a liquor store but if we find where a suspected terrorist is hiding we kill him and everyone around him, makes no sense to me.

    How far can the government go? What happens if they find that this situation within the continental US? Where could this go?
    It seems they are retroactively trying to justify Waco, or any like instances in the future.

    The question remains: What if this power gets into the wrong hands? Not just for now but 2o, 40, 60 years into the future. They took that poor bugger to jail with the claim that he had cause the attack on Benghazi. This would seem to be an abuse of government power, and quite an open one. The 'checks and balances' that have served the country so well over the centuries might be in danger of eroding.

    No, they didn't take him in with the claim he had caused the attack on Benghazi. The guy violated his parole by making the film in the first place.

    No, under your scenario they are simply 'known as members of a gang'.

    We know he ordered the killing of american citizens, who were not immediately engaged in violence, and who were not charged and convicted of a crime or treason, nor sentenced to death. That seems pretty clearly against the 5th amendment. This is exactly why the bill of rights was written.

    Oh heck, Obama's sophists are just trying to upstage Bush's John Yoo and Anthony Gonzalez and Michael Mukasey!

    Perhaps they have succeeded.
