What a joke. We kill hundreds if not thousands of non combatants and we only say oops and give our regrets and nothing of consequence happens to the murderers. We're gonna worry about this? American exceptionalism. You know our stuff don't stink.

Does anyone else see the absurdity of this policy? Someone who resides abroad to kill Americans is exempt from retribution? We need a commander in chief, not another bureaucrat.

An American citizen who is a member of al-Qaida is actively planning attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials say, and the Obama administration is wrestling with whether to kill him with a drone strike and how to do so legally under its new stricter targeting policy issued last year. *************** Suspected member of al-Qaida, suspected of planning attacks against Americans. Until the citizen has had their day in court they are innocent. Use a drone to kill the person is simply murder. So why worry about it now since this administration murdered 4 other American citizens suspected of being a member of a terrorist organization without a trial.

So, then Obama and his comrades can change the rules whenever to do whatever wherever when they want to kill whoever?

Maybe this should be decided in private and not in the press? I would imagine the guy is long gone now after this article broke.

Maybe this should be decided in private and not in the press? ****************** Maybe they should uphold the constitution and give the person due process before deciding a punishment. Who made government judge, jury and executioner?
