Truly amazing. If this were GWB, those opposing the current actions by Obama would be leading the charge. Those championing Obamas anti-terror efforts would be burning Bush in effigy. What a country.
Obama is right to continue the Bush policies re the war on terror. He is right to target specific terrorists. If they happen to have been born on American soil and 'choose' to go to foreign lands to fight for their 'cause', say hello to 'consequence'.
Rather than trying to destroy Alqeada and its leaders Bush's actions actually doubled their numbers while he was in office.
Obama has abandoned the recruiting for Alqueada by leaving Iraq and now Afghanistan in favor of actually targeting those that would do us harm.
The danger is that this plan way weaken Alqueda to the point where they are no longer a threat, I think that is the real "consequence" you are worrying about.
Remember, Bush promised an endless war and went to great pains to make sure that would be the outcome.
Yeah...I guess in your rush to slobber over Obama ya kinda miss the facts.
"We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress & the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution."

And I'll double down, and say let's just eliminate trials completely. To paraphrase President Nixon, when the President does it, it's legal.
