The Obama administration’s decision to authorize the killing by the Central Intelligence Agency of a terrorism suspect who is an American citizen has set off a debate over the legal and political limits of drone missile strikes, a mainstay of the campaign against terrorism.
The notion that the government can, in effect, execute one of its own citizens far from a combat zone, with no judicial process and based on secret intelligence, makes some legal authorities deeply uneasy.
“American citizenship doesn’t give you carte blanche to wage war against your own country,” said a counterterrorism official who discussed the classified program on condition of anonymity. “If you cast your lot with its enemies, you may well share their fate.”

I am sure with the Census wrapping up, they have all the GPS coordinates of every building in the US by now... I am on enough lists.
Its only because of the net we even hear about this, you can bet that americans have always been killing people they do not like. What amazes me is that hollywood has virtually conned everyone into believing a story that is so untrue about how america really is, and who governs it.

If he is a suspect, do not kill him.
If he has conspired to murder people, kill him.
