    How does that sit with US drone attacks that invade a sovereign country's airspace to attack "Suspected militants"?
    No trial, no evidence produced and no sign of a witness anywhere; just summery execution.

    Would you guys like to see summery execution without trial in New York?

    The Constitution doesn't matter to Obama nor does it matter to his Bots.

    The sixth amendment deals with criminal prosecution, not with overseas warfare.

    It applies to American citizens.

    Not if that American citizen is engaged in combat operations against the US during an ongoing conflict. If you're going to join a foreign foe and engage in warfare against the US you shouldn't be surprised if you get shot at.

    What combat operations? He wasn't shooting at us. It was an extrajudicial trial and execution.

    So the jihadi war against the US isn't really happening? The person involved was just sipping a pina colada on the beach?

    I don't know what he was sipping at the time. But I do know he was not engaged in combat. I have little doubt he was a piece of shit assisting terrorism against the USA. However, the ONLY thing we had on him was he was using words. First Amendment.

    And, he had a right to jurisprudence and habeus corpus.

    It's the Constitution.

    So if in WWII a US citizen had joined the German propaganda Ministry and US bombers had bombed that propaganda Ministry and thereby killed him, that would have been a crime against the constitution?
