Hit squad of Navy Seals to take out Osama bin Laden. Now, a drone squadron to take out Alwaki, and American citizen. No trial. No pilot. Send a robot to murder an American citizen. Creepy. Weird.
In case you forgot, it doesn’t matter what you think of the guy. If you are born in America, you’re an American citizen, protected by the Constitution and guaranteed the right to a speedy trial by a jury of your peers. How would you like a new amendment to the Constitution to read “or be just killed outright by faceless robot planes”?
