    The Constitution provides everyone due process. It also disallows cruel and unusual punishment.

    Obama ordered the assassination of a 16 year old AMERICAN child without so much as a trial or any fork of due process. I would also argue that using a drone to drop a missile on a kid's head is cruel and certainly unusual.

    Incoming Bush was worse replies as if that matters or justifies anything.

    If dropping a drone bomb is cruel and unusual, why do you keep supporting the military that is doing it? After all, they CAN refuse to follow unlawful orders.

    Assume. Tell me more about what I support. Why don't you stick to the issue at hand?

    Because they do it for the Greater Good (i.e., the End justifies the Means).

    It boils down again to who reports the news and who is responsible of the rewriting of the account, the rewriting of history. The collateral damage means nothing when compared to the agenda, the flavor of the day.
