  •  Due process in a war (0+ / 0-)

    Is not due process inside the United States when someone can be safely apprehended.  And honestly, if a criminal suspect inside this country shot at our law enforcement and posed the same risks to our law enforcement, lethal force would be used inside of this country against that suspect.

    Because the world is not ours though, when someone who we have no jurisdiction over endangers the well being of our citizens then rules of war begin to apply.  But I do not expect our troops to die by a suspects suicide vest though simply so we can say that we went in 100% determined to capture this suspect.  No suspect inside the United States would be given such a pass to place law enforcement at risk either.
