I don't see why their citizenship papers matter once they turn guns on American citizens and soldiers in order to kill them.

If you don't understand the difference between carrying rifles with the intent to kill other Americans, and having peaceful protests for human rights, you have obviously jettisoned any hope of rational thinking.

It is always sad see a mind this destroyed by deranged thought processes.

From Wiki:
The right didn't object to this killing.

The right has only started to object since President Obama became president. The left has always questioned the legality and morality, even under Obama:
Daily Kos: Any outrage about "Double Tap" Drone Strikes Killing Rescuers and Children? Any sympathy?
Yet the drone strikes on Pakistani children have continued and our military is in more countries than ever before.
The left is nothing more than murdering hypocrites.

Mika's only response....."could it be necessary action?"

Members around the table even admitted that had it been Bush, the left would go nuts!
Well, as long as Barack "The One" Obama picks the name for his hit list, why would the left NOT remain silent. We can trust our government to be the judge, jury, trail and executioner.

It isn't different but I would argue that threads like this is not to simply slam others in what they might believe but rather for you to say what you think about the actions. I did not see your opinions here.

All hail!
It appears our top priority as freedom loving Americans is to get NDAA and the Patriot Act repealed at any cost. We are in real jeopardy now. No kidding.

On the left, Glen Greenwald has been one of the most outspoken voices on civil liberties issues concerning the Obama administration.

Killing people seems to be ok when your side in in charge.
Killing those same people when the other side is in charge is not ok.

And you people actually want to debate the statement that the US is going to hell in a handbasket ?

Killing people is wrong no matter what party the President belongs to.

Drones can't differentiate the bad guys from innocent citizens; therein lies the difference.
