Bottom line I have had enough but I am just one.
Wait...I am SO confused...those poll results are so backwards compared to the positions given in other threads. Seems to me the people that believe that Obama is a war criminal and is guilty of violting those poor terrorists constitutional rights by executing them dont support impeachment, yet those that think he was in the right think he SHOULD be impeached for executing an American...
very strange, this partisan ideology thing.
If you believe the man is responsible for violating an American citizens constitutional rights and outright murdering him...how can you believe he should still be commander in chief? How can you not wish to see him charged criminally?
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

To authorize the use of United States Armed Forces against those
responsible for the recent attacks launched against the United
States. <<NOTE: Sept. 18, 2001 - [S.J. Res. 23]>>
Whereas, on September 11, 2001, acts of treacherous violence were

United States exercise its rights to self-defense and to protect
United States citizens both at home and abroad; and

policy of the United States posed by these grave acts of violence;
Whereas, such acts continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat
to the national security and foreign policy of the United States;
Whereas, the President has authority under the Constitution to take
action to deter and prevent acts of international terrorism against
the United States: Now, therefore, be it.
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United
States of America in Congress assembled, <<NOTE: Authorization for Use
of Military Force. 50 USC 1541 note.>>

authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those
nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized,

future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such

Approved September 18, 2001.
SEC. 8. (a) Authority to introduce United States Armed Forces into hostilities or into situations wherein involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated by the circumstances shall not be inferred--
(1) from any provision of law (whether or not in effect before the date of the enactment of this joint resolution), including any provision contained in any appropriation Act, unless such provision specifically authorizes the introduction of United States Armed Forces into hostilities or into such situations and stating that it is intended to constitute specific statutory authorization within the meaning of this joint resolution

(b) Within sixty calendar days after a report is submitted or is required to be submitted pursuant to section 4(a)(1), whichever is earlier, the President shall terminate any use of United States Armed Forces with respect to which such report was submitted (or required to be submitted), unless the Congress (1) has declared war or has enacted a specific authorization for such use of United States Armed Forces, (2) has extended by law such sixty-day period, or (3) is physically unable to meet as a result of an armed attack upon the United States. Such sixty-day period shall be extended for not more than an additional thirty days if the President determines and certifies to the Congress in writing that unavoidable military necessity respecting the safety of United States Armed Forces requires the continued use of such armed forces in the course of bringing about a prompt removal of such forces.
Id bet that most that voted yes to impeachment only voted yes for to smack obama...they dont believe for a second he should or could be impeached for this
He did the country a service...like him or not...and he saved american lives.
People know that these kinds of people can't be brought alive captured. There are too many possible leaks, capturing is a 100 times more difficult than killing, and a failure will be a blow to the US as a whole.
Considering the circumstances, Obama did what was needed to do, although I, along with many, would have prefered him getting a huge public circus of a trial with all the embarrassment it can muster, then throw him into a horrible, hell-like prison for the rest of his life
