Change

You all got the change you wanted, America.  The White House has changed from wiretapping and detaining US citizens without oversight or due process to just having them executed.  I feel so much better now.

From the Telegraph, via Q&O:
Barack Obama’s administration has authorised the assassination of the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, a rare move against an American citizen.
[...]

But don’t worry, separation of powers has been respected:
The decision to add him to the US hit list required a National Security Council review because of his citizenship.
You see, before Obama can unilaterally order an American citizen killed, he has to review the decision with, uh, a group of people he appointed and that work directly for him.

Al-Awlaki probably deserves a long drop on a short rope. But this is not 'Nam.  THERE ARE RULES.
