Sad, pathetic, ironic, inhuman. If I’m not mistaken, and I’m not, Awlaki was himself an American. And #Compromise aimed to and did kill him. At any rate, Assassins R Us is not something to crow about in actual human society.
That is some serious double-speak. Or is he hinting that "international legal principles, including respect for a state's sovereignty and the laws of war" are in our way?
And by the way, Awlaki was not the only US citizen assassinated in that air raid.
All hail the Assassin in Chief.
By assassinations and widespread death and destruction. Definitely a significant milestone for the US.
"His killing was a tribute..." My how we have regressed.
Man is the only animal that deals in that atrocity of atrocities, War. He is the only one that gathers his brethren about him and goes forth in cold blood and calm pulse to exterminate his kind. ... And in the intervals between campaigns he washes the blood off his hands and works for 'the universal brotherhood of man'-- with his mouth. --Mark Twain
The modern version is that he does both at the same time.
....but hey, do what you want....you will anyway.
