    Please to post when and where that was approved. If so why did Pakistan post a grievance, for the lack of a better word, over the Osama Ben laden attack?

    I just read this article. I would hope that those in charge would at least do their "due diligence" before the decision to pull the trigger is made. That being said, how many times have the cops blown innocent people away because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time or the cops had the wrong address. The government already has the right to shoot first and ask questions later...Ready, Fire, Aim!

    Does this country ask permission of any country to go after and kill someone responsible for the deaths of 4000 Americans on their own soil doing nothing but going about their daily lives.

    And I never got into the politics. And I don't care. You harm American citizens in this country as an act of terror, and I'd be glad to send them to Hell regardless of what hole they crawl in, no matter the country.

    If it were up to me, Iraq, Ahfganistan and Pakistan would either be smoldering heaps or the 51st, 52, and 53rd states.

    The problem with the bleeding hearts of this country is they lack the will or intestinal fortitude to do what needs doing. And we are weakening as a nation because of it.

    We have unfortunately encountered a parallel. Iran it has been claimed used agents here to assassinate its former
    citizens. War (open or in secret) is nasty stuff.

    re: Part in bold. I think both Yemen and Pakistan have at least privately given the permission. Outwardly the Pakistan
    government moans and groans, but if they really objected they would be much more vigorous about it.

    Yemen to my surprise seems to act more like an ally than an enemy.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    And what "due process" do the terrorists comply with?

    The point of all this is that the President can make this call on judgement, without consent or a court order depending on his interpretation of the meaning of "immediate harm" and "threat", and without tangible proof. Last I knew, it's every American citizen's Constitutional right to be afforded due process, even when we dislike them, their beliefs or their actions. Sticking to this standard may mean that some bad people walk free, but that in my mind is a lesser evil than taking a life by fiat.

    None, I suppose, provided you are the one piloting the drone.

    Every 2nd Amendment supporter is just one executive order and a bit of media spin away from being deemed a domestic terrorist, to be dealt with in the harshest of terms.

    The thing that strikes me as odd is that for a lot of folks that do not trust our current POTUS they fully support and trust his decision making ability to order the killing of a US citizen....which BTW makes him look very good politically.
