    I heard the ACLU is filing against Obama as CiC for targeting a US citizen who has been deemed as a terrorist and living in Pakistan.
    Apparently, he is on that list...the list the drones are used to take out memebers of.

    I doubt Obama would do it if he were not sure, but should any US citizen EVER be accused of, found guilty of, and executed for anything without due process?

    Now, before you jump down my throat....lets look at this MADE UP scenario...

    I emphasize...MADE UP and I am in no way saying Obama would do it....but hear me out..

    Bill O'reilly has been to Pakistand, A-stan and Iraq many times. What if THAT was the evidence Obama claimed to have that he is engaging in terrorist activity and Oreilly was taken out for it....

    Afterall, we all know Obama's numbers may be a little better without Oreilly....not saying Obama would do it....but think about it.

    I think the ACLU got this one right.

    Thoughts?

    I think you're an idiot. Al-Awlaki is an enemy to this country and does not deserve due process. He should be stripped of his citizenship then killed.

    Funny. I disagree with you but I dont think you are an idiot.
    I dont have an issue with him being killed on the battlefield. But I do have an issue with the CiC deciding what US citizens should die via assasination and which ones shouldn't.
    I agree with using the predator drones...but that is assasination...and no one American has the right to decide what US citizen warrants assasination.

    I also heared that they took Hannity's side in a law suit. But I still think their record is less than perfect.

    Like the case were they were fighting for convicted child molesters/rapists to be able to live close to schools. ...pathetic.

    this country would already be a police state without the aclu & eff. it figures neocons and GW 20%ers are the ones always fighting against them seeing as neocons casually will throw away civil rights and bend over to anything "security" related

    There are plenty of liberal progressive douchebags that are OK with strange things as well.

    But hey...dont forget one thing Blu....

    Obama is OK with the President singling out citizens to be killed as well.

    Something you should think about.
