In response to all the rightwing nuts and the bleeding heart libs this is not an atrocity instigated by the President but an atrocity instigated by our own national paranoia. Get the f88k out of there NOW!

It’s amazing how many folks seem to think that we have a Constitution that consists of suggestions and a Bill of Right to be Applied When Convenient…

If it's OK for the government to kill these guys with the flip of a switch, why is it not OK to kill the guys who murdered the little girls in New Jersey and Colorado recently?

Democrats and Republicans are working together once gain to violate the constitution, and you guys thought bipartisanship was dead. Cheney even praised Obama for his drone strike that assassinated two American citizens without due process. I think Cheney was also happy that Obama pardoned all the torturers and the wiretappers, remember when Obama said " we have to look forward, not backward?" Obama's ability to normalize and legitimize the most radical unconstitutional policies to Democrats is something to behold. Thank you for reauthorizing the "patriot act" Obama... Change?

Obama should be impeached. Just like Bush should have. The Presidency is not for those individuals to play with the laws as they please. Or enforce only the ones they like and not pay any attention to the ones they do not agree with. These men in our Government have made an oath and it's time we held them on it.

You should write to your congressman.

That is where impeachment begins.

Let me know how he/she replies.

President Ombama seems to be damned if he kills terrorists and damned if he doesn't. He's the Commander in Chief and that's his call. At least he doesn't flip flop on the issue like some people we know.

Let me get this straight... Obama is against water boarding and other forms of 'torture" of known terriosts but is okay with the killing of teenagers who may or may not be for or against America?

I have for some time objected to Obama having a Chicago style hit list, especially when Americans are on that list. This article lends strengh to my beliefs.

Who is to know that one day you or I could be on that list?

We are a nation of laws. Our leaders should follow those laws or be prosecuted.

Who told you any Americans were on the list?

Al Awaki had renounced his citizenship. He was not an American when he died.

Do you have the first clue how many names are on the list? Well informed sources say less than 25.

One less, now that bin Laden sleeps with the fishes.

"The killing of three US citizens, one a 16-year-old boy, in targeted drone strikes last year were unlawful and violated their constitutional rights by not affording them due process, according to a lawsuit filed by their relatives on Wednesday. The lawsuit accuses Leon Panetta, the secretary of defence, David Petraeus, the director of the CIA, and two military commanders of authorising and directing unlawful killings. President Barack Obama is not named in the lawsuit: presidents are immune from civil suits arising from their official actions."

If you read this article you would know that Anwar al-Awlaki's son, an American citizen, was killed by a drone. Now either he was on Obama's hit list, or he was not. Either way, he is an American citizen killed without warrant,

Those responsible should be prosecuted for this crime.

Either we play by the Constitution, or we become a lawless nation.

The people killed in 2001 and 2012 should go after the ass's that started this war, it sure WASN'T the Americans. What the USA gives back to the enemy is well deserved.... Just remember Al Qaeda ...go to sleep with one eye open because the Navy Seals are going to get you ;))

Tango Sierra, Gibbs is right. A father who was concerned about his child's well-being would not associate with the sworn enemy of the United States of America. The right-wing Christian monsters who claim this maggot and his son are innocents should be water-boarded, they love torture so much.
03:42 PM on 10/25/2012
Good point. And lets make sure we kill the children of ever murderer. And if they are a mass murderer, let's kill their whole family...and maybe some of their neighbors too! I think that is only fair and apparently you do too!

Fascists such as yourself should take a little time out and attempt to grasp the basic notion that making "exceptions" to prime principles is a very slippery slope. If it’s OK to kill American citizens who haven't been convicted of any crime by firing a Hellfire missile into a country that we are not at war with you better hope some future president doesn’t decide that you are worthy of similar treatment. If you ignore the Constitution for one class of offenses that bothers you you don’t get to expect protection for yourself. People like you constitute a clear and present danger to the future of the Republic. Somebody might just figure that is a trait worthy of assassination as well...

None of us mourn a dead terrorist. Many of us think that trashing the Constitution is an unacceptable level of collateral damage.

Al Awaki Sr was not an American, he had renounced his citizenship, and was actively at war with the US.

Did anyone deliberately kill the kid? Got proof?

Actual proof, please.

In the last Romney/Obama debate Romney stated that 'we cannot kill our way out of this mess.' I'm guessing that the Obama administration disagrees.
04:14 PM on 10/25/2012
In the last Romney/Obama debate Romney stated that he agrees with the use of drones.
"I believe we should use any and all means necessary," Romney said when asked if he agreed with the president's policy. "I support that entirely and feel the president was right to up the usage of that policy."
During the year of campaigning he was even more hawkish, calling Obama soft on terror and refusing to say he would end the war in Afghanistan. He also has people like Bolton on his team who want us to make a pre-emptive strike on Iran, like yesterday!

Even Romney disagrees. A sociopath like that wouldn't blink at killing anyone, American citizen or not. He'll just say whatever he thinks needs to be said to win and since he's flip-flopped on every single issue, especially foreign policy, I'm sure he thought that sounded good.

It's one of those things that feels good I guess and certainly panders to the base. It's pointless though since there's always a replacement for the one who gets killed. This is something the Muslim nations have to fix. While these persons are a danger to us they are a bigger one to them keeping their nations destabilized and unable to move forward.

TEA PARTY MEMBER-RESPECT THE CONSTITUTION!

The most interesting factor about this issue is how most of Obama's supporters were after George W. Bush accusing him of war crimes when if you compare the teo, Mr. Bush is like Mother Theresa compared to Obama's immoral practices. Where is the United Nations Human Rights council on this or for all that matter on "Operation Fast & Furious" where the Obama Administration represented by Attorney General Eric Holder paid for over 2000- AK-47 assault rifles and 50 calibre Sniper Rifles, using specifically allocated stimulus funds $10.4 million dollars and gave them to the Sinaloa Mexican Drug Cartel. The Sinaloa Cartel used these weapons and the ammunition that went with them to kill Mexican Politicians and Mayors, The State Attorney General's Brother, Brian Terry, a U.S. Border Patrol Agent, 16 teenagers having a graduation party, Mexican marines and police officers. The Mexican Government was DELIBERATELY not told about this operation and was not told until the Attorney General's brother was killed by one of the weapons. Almost 3000 Mexican citizens have been kiled by these weapons provided directly by the United States Government. Obama and his administration continue to cover this up.
