    That you're obviously pissed off.

    Your link to wikipedia describes al-Aulaqi as an American citizen, including his US birthplace.  Sounds like an American citizen to me.  As to due process, there wasn't even so much as an indictment that would lead to a transparent judicial process.  The decision on which Americans to assassinate rests with the executive branch as judge, jury, and executioner.  

    Unless whatever the courts refuse to put a stop to is automatically due process?  Would that apply to what the Bush administration did?  The courts didn't seem to have had a taste for getting in Bush's way, either, never mind what any future Republican admin might do.

    Since say you've read up on the process, I'd appreciate a recommendation of what specifically I need to read to understand where you believe I'm wrong, because what I've seen are formalistic excuses like the ones used to excuse the Bush administration, and because the laws exist as interpreted, not merely as statutes.

    I'm not here for a pissing contest.  I'm willing to be informed and I mean what I say in good faith.
