    Yeah, I know there's x number of threads already. This is one more. Not a 'reliable source,' but a conversation I think worthy to have. There are links aplenty, but enough her for discussion, I'd think.

    I'm willing to give Obama a break on this one. After all, it's the only thing he's done right.

    Back this up, please. With actual quotes.

    I only wish you people got upset when we gave Dubya the authority to deem anyone a terrorist without trial.

    There was no reason to have a trial about Anwar al-Awlaki's treason. 13 murdered Ft. Hood soldiers are evidence enuff of treason. Nidal Hassan's computer hard drive provided all the forensics needed.

    Due process doesn't apply for treasonous war criminals. Death by drone was just punishment. It is certain no more Americans will be killed due to al-Awlaki's al-Queda activities because death is a permanent end to
    his traitorous jihad.
