    I was murging 3 threads and tried to delete just one duplicate post from it and the whole thread disappeared. My most humble apologies.
    Having said that....carry on....

    I am in the process of giving a bit more thought to the musing of Oddball on this topic.

    But for the time being, I am content that it is ok to snuff an enemy in time of war.

    How is it a Muslim who comes to our country and kills a threat to their way of thinking a terrorist?

    Now it is okay to kill Americans by Americans on foreign soil?

    When is it legal for politicans to have Americans killed on American soil, if deemed a threat?

    This should have been a Seal Team snatch and grab. He resists, then you can terminate.

    Shouldn't this have been debated when the FBI put him on a dead or alive ticket?

    Obama's position:

    Waterboarding KSM was illegal but putting an American citizen on an assassination list without benefit of trial is legal.


    My position:

    The Constitution took a major blow today.

    I heard a small amount of debate about this then. But it was back when the media were still starry eyed about Obama. Faced with the minor backlash Obama said something about maybe possibly indicting Awlaki, and people moved on.
