Assassinating Awlaki Sets Dangerous Precedent

 
On Feb. 3, 2010, Dennis Blair, then the country's director of national intelligence, admitted before the House Intelligence Committee that "Being a U.S. citizen will not spare an American from getting assassinated by military or intelligence operatives." This open admission by an Obama administration official, not even attempting to keep it classified or top secret, sets a dangerous new precedent in our history.

  hlymnky   Ron Paul makes a good point in this editorial. Unlike him I do believe our current President has the country's best interest in mind, but still the public killing of Awlaki does set a dangerous precedent.

  rspeakman   I get the logic of taking out Awlaki, but, true, this does seem to go against the Constitutional right to a fair trial afforded to every U.S. citizen, regardless of how "un-American" they look,

  dadvocate   I'm not sure what the precedent is. The only difference is now they are foolish enough to be public about it. This has been a part of covert operations for as long as i can remember.
