    I don't see this as the same situation. A person committing a lethal act should be dealt with. A guy who is doing a weird desert obstacle course or sitting around a campfire saying the US sucks isn't reason to hit him with a air strike.

    No memo will make me think droning down an American citizen anywhere is okay.

    So very interesting. Scary. Good. Bad. Interesting.
    It's wrong and it's very reminiscent of the Bush lawyers arguing for torture.

    If there were any grounds for impeachment that we've heard by the right wing echo chamber... all of which are crap BS... this one definitely has meat on it.

    Except had Bush gone to the extremes of violating the separation of power that the current administration has, boy would the media coverage and outcry be different.

    From what I understand Anwar al-Awlaki was an American killed by a drone strike in Yemen and he hadn't killed anyone nor made any of the plans that killed anyone. They just said he was thinking about doing it and that he talked a lot of ****.

    HE DID. Amazing how short people's memories are.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I have no doubt he and every other president has to some extent. How many signed a bill into law, then turned around and without congress changed that law? Or refused to enforce it?

    I would ask for examples but I don't expect any... at least not any reputable ones.

    The ACA. Signed into law with deadlines. Law, meaning, in print, these are the timelines. Without congress involved, without their approval, several of the timetables in the law were overridden/ignored. Is that 'reputable', or do you deny it happened?
