  4. During Stalin era, "the enemy of the people" could be instantly imprisoned or executed. But even they were given some sort of a phony trial to make it look somewhat legal. I could never think that the United States, the stronghold of Liberty, would one day one-up Stalin.

    The ends justify the means - period.

    These turds, terrorists themselves, were hanging with an uber terrorist who got smoked from above. Tough.

    Killing a enemy cobatatnt plotting to murder american citizens during a time of war is not murder.

    And who gives a crapere they were born, he pretty much renounced citizenship by becoming a terrorist anyway.

    Killing terrorists is always badass too.

    It's a complicated issue. On one hand, he's an American citizen. On the other hand he's a scum sucking, vile terrorist intent on killing other US citizens.
    Uhhhhh, on second thought it's not very complicated at all. Nevermind.

    The government says he did. We all know they'd never lie about something like that, right?

    Sweet. You guys just said "alleged" and "suspected" justifies killing you. I got lots of suspicions about people. I was afraid to act on any of it before.

    I'm sure he was a terrorist scumbag.

    That's not the point.

    This is about the precedent set, not about this particular individual. If it is legal for the US government to decide to kill US citizens without due process, where does that end? What if tomorrow the government decides that anyone who doesn't turn in their "assault rifle" is a terrorist, what then? Can they call in drone strikes on your house?

    Bin Laden was not a US citizen.

    Fine then....they killed him in self-defense of this nation if that makes you feel better. Allowing him to stay in foreign lands to coordinate terrorist attacks is certainly not the answer.

    Sometimes things are just the right thing to do, everything is not a 'slippery slope'.

    And when they decide that you are a threat to this nation, and come after you... then what?

    Setting a precedent that the US government can legally target its own citizens for assassination is certainly not the answer either.

    I literally cannot think of a better example of "slippery slope" than this one.

    You just gotta love the GT chest thumpers who hold the 2nd Amendment in such high regard yet are more than willing to disregard other sections of the Constitution so willingly.

    US Citizens have certain rights. Period. It doesn't matter if we don't like them. it doesn't matter if we suspect the particular citizen is suspected of killing Americans.

    So, if a wanted known mass murderer US citizen stepped across the border into Mexico, the US President can order his murder?

    This is not a slippery slope. This is the Constitution we're talking about.
