    It was a hit, one mafia boss taking out another. Complete with the guy swimming with the fishes.

    Legally, there's criminal law for people and groups, and there's a declaration of war for countries. If we want to go making up scenarios in which the people in the executive branch of government can kill out of their own volition, then we should have the public debate, amend the Constitution, and pass the law. (Not that I'd support it, in that form.) Anything else is fiat.

    Legitimate government power is only what the law provides. The 10th Amendment is there to back that up.

    Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure everyone's freedom.
