So you as a little NAZI have a LAW that supports your position? Oh wait! Hitler did the extermination of over 10 million "legally" didn't he- BY DECREE! We are a nation of LAWS, not MEN! NO ONE can assumed to have "surrendered" their CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS simply by someone "believing" something and then killing them for those beliefs. Do you REALLY not understand the implications this has on your OWN FREEDOM?

If someone gave up their citizenship here for citizenship in a country known to have animus toward the US - I would say they do not merit US Constitutional rights. What is the difference between sending snipers to surgically remove an enemy and using a drone to remove that one person and everyone else around him? The problem is the President being allowed to make up the KILL list and get folks to execute it for him without oversight - he's not been made Lord Tyrant as of yet. And with the proliferation of drone use in the US how do we know they will not be armed against us?

"We are a nation of laws"

And the law is very clear that terrorists, regardless of nationality, are hostiles humani generis—foreign to human nations, or enemies of the human race.

This law was cited by Jefferson in his actions against the Barbary pirates. I don't think you know who you're talking to.

So, how dare I argue from laws—but we are a nation of laws not men? Pick ONE, please.

Also, Godwin's Law.

But since we're on the subject, I didn't say anything about "believing" anything. Working with terrorists is an action, not a belief.

I don't know what you think you were replying to, but it wasn't what I wrote.

I really don't think they do understand. The House of Representatives should be calling for his impeachment right about now. The guy is a liar and a murderer. We need to have a system in place for people who do join terrorists. We are a nation of laws and as such no one can take another rights or life without due process. Freedom is not free.

Can you hear the humming of a lawnmower in the sky? It is a government drone. Your mission is to prevent this unmanned aircraft from droning out your freedom.

Last week, NBC News turned the White House upside-down by revealing a confidential 16-page Department of Justice white paper titled “Lawfulness of a Lethal Operation Directed Against a U.S. Citizen Who is a Senior Operational Leader of Al-Qa’ida or An Associated Force.” (A better title: “Justification for Stripping U.S. Citizens of their Natural Rights and Crowning the President King.”)

I read this white paper and I encourage you to read it...
