Suddenly the head of IRS apologizes, now Holder admits we are killing even more Americans without benefit of trial, what is with all the coming clean? They are despicable. Lois Lerner today looked like a loon, and tried to pull a stunt. Issa wasn't amused, and he will haul her butt back before that committee post haste. These people are panicked, and are making all kinds of mistakes.

No matter the crime all American citizens are guaranteed a trial by jury of a group of their peers. Obama and Holder are Assassins of American citizens without due process. No matter their reasoning no man - not even the President or Attorney General are above the law. Thomas More, when Henry the VIII brought him to trial for his failure to accede to The Divorce, had a discourse with his Son-in-law in which he said that he would give The Devil the benefit of law because if all the laws were flattened and the devil turned around on you, where could you hide..... so yes He would give the devil the benefit of law for his own safety's sake. And..... our elected officials would not give the devil - 4 American Citizens (their character)- the benefit of law, so where is their right to the protection of the law. Bring Obama and Holder to Justice!! They have flattened the laws they are sworn to up hold. Impeach the bastards!

How do you know they were not? Did you read anything before you started going there?

"Based on generations-old legal principles and Supreme Court decisions handed down from WWII, as well as during the current conflict, it is clear and logical the United States Citizenship alone does not make such citizens immune from being targeted," Holder told Leahy, D-V. So they could be killed.They were the enemy

If those bastards can kill Americans over seas they can kill Americans right here at home. This is what you voted for. Republicans are just as responsible for this rogue government as the Democrats.

When it is a "terrorist's" act overseas, it is war.

When it happens here at home it is "workplace violence" and the perpetrator continues to collect a military paycheck.

What's wrong with that picture?

As much as I dislike Obama and Holder, they are doing what they have to do killing these terrorists before they can terrorize and kill more of us. On the battlefield in a foreign country the rules are not the same as here. You have no common sense.

How do you give someone a trial by jury who flees the country and hides out among enemies declaring jihad against the US and sending terrorists to kill Americans. If he wanted to face the music he could have, good thing Anwar al-Awlaki got droned.

If common sense is abrogating the laws which are the right of every citizen under our Constitution and laying low those laws then Thank God I have no common sense and don't behave in my thinking like some one with the mentality of a herding animal. If their rights can be trampled on, then your rights can not be far behind whether on a battlefield or here at home.

In absentia! Where a case can be laid out by the Government before a jury and a verdict rendered with benefit of law and not a Shogun dictatorial President.

What a dummy, a typical bleeding heart liberal, most probably an ACLU type. When people go abroad to conspire to terrorize and/or kill our people, our government has the right and duty to go after them by any means necessary. If these same people, you feel so sorry for, did harm to someone you care about, I am sure you would change your tune real fast.
