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.

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.

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

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.

When they say Obama studied Constitutional Law, did anyone ask if it was the US Constitution?

Yep, you have to at least try to capture him. We even extended that to Osama, an American gets three Hellfire missiles.

We have folks getting worked up about people on death row, but will jump straight to the execution if it is not on US soil? The Obamabots need reprogramming.

Dead terrorists are good under Republicans.

Dead terrorists killed under Democrats are freedom fighters to be pitied.

If you're Dud, that is.

If you don't uphold the Constitution, the terrorists already won. Can you at least recognize we are making the distinction of American terrorist here?
