    Dude was 16 years old, it's not like he had a choice where he lived.

    Please substantiate your claim that this kid "chose his side." Because so far even the Obama Administration won't claim that he did anything wrong.

    Let me try again

    I said "sins of the father" blah blah blah

    You said "not at all" blah blah blah

    Yet you continue to explain this in a way that lines up with "sins of the father"

    Secondly, the CIA identified his son as a "military-aged combatant" before the drone strike. Explain how a 16 year old US citizen with no ties to a terrorist group (unless of course "sins of the father") in a country the US is not at war with is a "military-aged combatant"?

    But of course, this is not an abuse of power, his father put him in harms way

    Re: How Team Obama Justifies the Killing of a 16-Year-Old American Citizen

    I think if american terrorists, supported by the President, had flown jet airplanes into major cities in Canada then any assassination of the President would be considered as a continuation of the war begun by those terrorists.

    So let me get this straight..in order for terrorists to be safe from any threat from the United States, they just need to find a sympathetic american to come and live with them?

    Again, you will be providing proof that this was an innocent American citizen who was specifically targeted by the United States? And please, try to find some reputable news source for this 'proof', not one of the typical 'US is the source of all evil in the world' garbage sites that generally get referenced in threads like this.

    Your last question is a joke, right? I wonder how many innocent people in the world have been killed by 16 year old warriors.

    You're right. It does line up with sins of the father. Too bad his father cared more about spilling American blood than he did his own son.

    I didn't say it was a terrorist country. I said it was a haven for terrorists. Which it is. Much like Pakistan.

    Try informing yourself on these issues.

    Same difference

    There are estimates of a few hundered, at most, terrorists suspects in Yemen. The government has been fighting with them since before 9/11, after they fought with the Russians.

    We have thousands. By your logic, any country with a few terrorist suspects is a "terrorist haven"

    Edit: State Sponsors of Terrorism. How about that? They are all the same, just word play

    Notice how Yemen is not on the list buddy

    Well, if it's true that its only a few hundred, then it's a few hundred minus a few now. Don't try and get me to shed tears for these bastards. They deserve whatever they get, and so do those who shelter them and associate with them.
