I nearly always agree with Dr. Sowell, but he's off-base for once. The problem with drone strikes on US citizens who have joined terrorist organizations is twofold. First, due process is not being done, by the rules the administration set up. That means US citizens are being deprived of life by our government by presidential fiat, without a judge or jury passing sentence - very disturbing. Second, the innocent children of these people - children who are also US citizens - are put at risk. One, at least, has apparently been killed. That's way beyond the pale.
