Can’t waterboard them? Then just kill them!

The Obama administration, pioneering new ways to make the Dubya administration look restrained, has declined to capture its terror suspects and torture them in Gitmo.  Instead, they just kill them right where they are.

Let’s just say for the sake of argument that Anwar al Awlaki needed killing.  But the guy was American citizen. Even granting that Awlaki had effectively renounced his citizenship, still, as a member of the public, I want to know two things about his summary execution.  First, what specific crimes had he committed?  We know he advocated jihad on Youtube… anything else?  Second, what’s in this secret memo we’re reading about which supposedly explains why it’s legal for the U.S. government to assassinate American citizens?

While I’m at it, it’d be nice if I could find out whether I might have done something the Obama administration believes would justify their sending a missile into my minivan.  Do I write in defense of jihadist maniacs like Awlaki?  No, I write in defense of increasing numbers of ordinary Americans who find it reasonable to be afraid of their own government.
