Assassination is ok but torture is illegal? Is that the message the left is sending?

I want it explained to me by those that claimed water boarding enemy combatants, foreign nationals caught fighting us, was illegal and immoral, but ordering the assassination of a US citizen never charged with a single crime is a ok.

The victim was at least technically a US citizen born in the USA. He wasn't killed on the battlefield bearing arms against the US. The president signed his death warrant without a trial and he was killed by a bomb. Doesn't anyone on the bloodthirsty left see a fundamental problem in targeting and killing Americans anywhere in the world?

Notice how CON$ can always rationalize defending their fellow terrorists!

I have no sympathy for terrorists, whether they're waterboarded, shot in the face, or cut into little pieces.

I am as left as anyone but also a libertarian (left-libertarian).

I have serious issues with this.

Those who try to make this a left issue are nothing more than muckrakers.
