Yes––so I guess he should have been in the U.S. and standing for trial, no? What country was he in when he died again? What was he doing?
not paul bot, and i think killing this guy was good..
and i think we should have used tactical nukes in afghanistan without declaring war..
so i sorta of a 'get it done, kill them all, never mind the collateral damage' type guy.
but tell me where in the constitution (and it might be there i dunno) its legal for a president to assassinate us citizens?
note that im ok with this, even it ts 'against the law'.. but since the constitution is an oft touted document on this board, im interested to know...
Making war––how does it work? The guy was in a foreign country actively engaged in making war against this country. He was therefore just a target––not a citizen. He was NOT "assassinated" in any normal definition of the word. Had he been, that would be fine too, BTW, as again, he was actively making war against this country. One's citizenship status is no protection when making war. Where did YOU get the idea it is?
