I was not really surprised that this hasn't been given a lot of attention by the US right or the left - it is inconvenient for them both and just as well to the media in general.....
U.S. Approves Targeted Killing of American Cleric
The man in question is a born US Citizen.
Inconvenience for those on the Right: They believe (sometimes conveniently so) that the President has unlimited authority in defending the US. However, for them there is a little pesky document called the Constitution which guarantees due process and fair trial.
Inconvenience for those on the Left: They cried hoarse for 8 years that President Bush was pushing the envelop on executive authority but now President of their own party is going even further. They were agitated with the warrant-less wiretapping etc. but this is just as much egregious to some if not more....
So what do you all think about this?
