The administration of President Barack Obama has itself tied up in quite a knot.
The administration that opposes enhanced interrogations, that wants to treat terrorists caught both on the battlefield and in country as common criminals, that wants to try suspected 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed in a New York City courtroom, that read Miranda rights to the foreign-born underwear bomber right away but delayed it for hours for the naturalized citizen Times Square bomber, has targeted an American citizen living in Yemen for assassination.
Of course, since the United States government has a policy against assassination that’s not what it’s being called. But what else do you call the order designating American-born radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki as a target for a strike by a drone missile? [...]
The Barack Obama Constitution at work. Let us kill an American citizen because he is a terrorist? Target a US Citizen, Barack? What will be next, Barack? Me? An alleged right wing terrorist just because we doubt your every word? Sounds "Rather" constitutional, Barack.
