    And it WOULD be sort of difficult to have said trial wouldnt it? i mean...other than having a defense attorney consistently saying 'un-uh!' how could they mount a credible defense?
    They could argue that although Awlaki is hardly an upstanding citizen, there's no evidence that he's actually been guilty of planning terrorist acts (as opposed to merely inspiring them) and therefore he shouldn't be targeted for assassination. It would probably be a tough defense to make, but it might be their best bet. And if they can't mount a credible defense, well, then that's probably more of an indication that he's guilty than that there is something wrong with the process.

    (that sounds sarcastic...its not meant to be-in our legal system if a defendent cant participate in their defense it doesnt work out very well).
    I agree, but it's better than the alternative which is to have no trial at all and allow the president to unilaterally assassinate American citizens who he deems to be enemies.

    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I'm thinking that if a US citizen knows that he is wanted for a crime, he should turn himself in and be afforded a fair trial. If a US citizen knows he is wanted for a crime, but expends great effort 1.) to avoid capture and 2.) to continue in the unlawful offense, then he's got to expect that his death is something that may occur as the law enforcement agency in charge attempts to curb the offender's efforts.

    However, if a US citizen desires to peacefully surrender and is hindered from such or is refused a fair trial after such, only then (in my somewhat pitiful opinion) have his rights been violated.

    If Obama lied to Congress and the American people about this issue or his involvement in it, then he should be indicted. But, if he came to Congress and said, I'm authorizing our noble folks to use deadly force on this puke if he doesn't turn himself in, then while I find his policy to be terribly inconsistent to his spoken views and criticisms, I'm fine with the action taken.
    The US is an odd ship. The captain yells out when he sees obtacles , but 535 individual propellers do the steering.

    LOL! Is this the new GOP alternative to not being able to find a candidate that can beat Obama in the upcoming election???

    You guys are too much (all 6 of you, from the poll results I see)! LOL!

    Selling arms to the Mexican drug cartels? Nearly all of those guns are bought in the SW states with little to no gun control and then smuggled over the border. I don't know what makes you think Obama plays a part in that, unless you're talking about the sting operation that went bad a while back, something I am sure Obama personally knew nothing about.
