    Then have a quick tribunal to declare them enemies. Something about freedom of association and all those other inconveniences.

    Possible I guess. But I think if you go to work for AQ with the idea of bring death and destruction to the United States and those who live in her, you're free game, citizen or not.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    If you are OK with 1 person deciding that without any "due process", then that is your call, but I'd prefer a larger group. I don't believe that 1 person should be judge, jury and executioner.

    It absolutely is an impeachable offense. It directly violates the 5th Amendment to our Constitution.

    A president takes an oath to office to protect and preserve the Constitution of the United States. If he violates that oath in any way...it is an impeachable offense.
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.

    Not when those killed become enemy combatants during a time of war.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I guess I am. But I always wonder if this group that is so riled up over an American Citizen working with AQ and planning the death of other Americans in a foreign country were arrest was impossible over him not having his right to a trial. What if this particular agent of AQ was successful in bringing down another airplane, detonating a bomb or blowing himself up in a mall some place.

    I would wager most of these same people so concerned about this one American traitors rights would be demanding to know why he wasn't taken out when we had him in our sights. Their tune would change 180 degrees.

    Sickening double standard, isn't it? :

    I read the other day where approximately 30% of all those who have been released were seen again on the battlefield. The people who are demanding their release will not have to face them again on the battlefield. To so many of the younger generations, war is a video game. They have volunteers who put their lives in harms way for them. I don't know, I just don't know.

    That depends. What if they are a traitor and are fighting against us in a war?

    What has happened that the younger generation treats war as just another adventure game in their lives? Isn't history being taught in the schools any longer?
