    Groups File Suit over Assassinations List

    The US government is facing a new legal challenge to its authorization of assassinating US citizens accused of terrorism links abroad. On Tuesday, the Center for Constitutional Rights and the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit over the government’s refusal to allow legal action targeting the assassination policy. The suit was filed on behalf of the father of Yemen-based Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who is said to be the first US citizen added to a CIA list of targets for capture or killing. Last month, al-Awlaki was designated "specially designated global terrorist," which makes it a crime to represent him in court. Bill Quigley of the Center for Constitutional Rights said Awlaki is entitled to legal redress.

    Bill Quigley: "The issue in this case is the right of citizens to be able to go to court to challenge government action. Here, the government is trying to assassinate a US citizen who they say is a terrorist. The ACLU and the Center for Constitutional Rights are trying to go into court to challenge that assassination effort, but at this point we have to get permission from the government to even go into court to represent them to raise these constitutional issues. So we think that’s unconstitutional, and we’re asking that the court strike that down and allow us to get to the point of this, which is under what circumstances can the government execute somebody without due process of law."

    Interesting case.

    Is this aiding and abetting an enemy? Time will tell.

    This was news yesterday, but as a fellow Libertarian, at least I guess you are, you can only agree that Obama is Bush II, and a filthy treasonous maggot who deserves to be tried by congress, found guilty and, well you fill in the blank LOL.

    supporter of the ACLU position on O'reilly tonight. would not say that al qaeda poses a threat to US because he has no evidence of that fact.

    Considering who this administration considers enemies, the hit list is a bit disturbing.

    This story originally broke the same day as that Sherrod stuff. In fact, the Glenn Beck episode that the administration told her she was going to be on was actually about the hit list.

    Funny, how the media completely ignored this story isnt it?

    If by ignored you mean "Over 500 results on Google News Feed from every major source".
