    Obama should be impeached just for his knowing about, and approval of the FAST AND FURIOUS ACT gone bad.

    Or try him.......as you go on to note.

    I'm not comfortable with the president being able to unilaterally target American citizens for assassination, but our legal system didn't give him any other option.

    What I would like to see is a "trial in abstentia" by a judge and jury who have access to classified information. Obama would then have to prove three things to the judge and jury: 1) Awlaki had committed a felony, 2) Awlaki was still a threat to the national security of the United States, and 3) Awlaki couldn't be arrested and extradited by normal means. If the judge/jury signed off on it, then Obama would have free reign to hunt him down with Predator drones. If they said no, then he wouldn't. Such a system wouldn't be perfect, but it would be a big step forward from what we currently have, where the president gets to pick and choose who he wants to kill without any oversight whatsoever.
    HE HAS THIS OPTION. err, had this option.

    What've we got?
    • A US Citizen who was identified by the CIA as kill-worthy in the war on terror.
    • A Lawsuit brought about to "stay the execution" dismissed by the US District Court with an opinion that says that courts have no authority in the matter.
    • Hearings held making Congress aware of the kill order, apparently without uproar.

    I vote "No" above. You?

    For having a terrorist/enemy combatant on foreign soil killed? Hell No. If was on American soil then that would be a different story.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I voted yes, I meant to vote no. Obama shouldn't be impeached for the killing of a terrorist leader.

    No, he should not be impeached because he did not target Al-alwaki because he was an American citizen or even because of his political views. Rather, he was targeted because he is a leader within a terrorist organization.

    However, to be fair, I think the credibility of such "targeted killing" would have more legitimacy if such American citizens in terrorist organizations were tried for treason and found guilty.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
