I believe political assassinations are useless. But tactical assassinations are useful from a strictly military standpoint. There's a reason American Patriots shot the officers during the revolutionary war, and mounted Americas first Special Ops to kidnap and kill generals.
1. To murder(a prominent person) by surprise attack, as for political reasons.
2. To destroy or injure treacherously: assassinate a rival's character.

The legality of assassination should be challenged on any level. It is no more acceptable to assassinate non American citizens than it is acceptable to assassinate American citizens. The single greatest problem with authorizing assassinations, in any form, is that it opens the door for the assassination of American citizens regardless, and most certainly opens the door for the assassination of U.S. officials.

Ummmm hello?!!?! Maybe the guy aided the terriorist because he had to?? In fear of his life?! That doesnt give anyone the right to kill him for it! We dont know the whole story, and Whatever happened to killing the terriorist themselves? and not people who are probably doing whatever they have too to keep their own butts alive?
Dude if I ever get addicted to drugs can I hang out with you? You are the best enabler ever.
Ok so the guy is aiding the enemy and it is wrong to kill him? It is not wrong to kill him. It is wrong for the government to target him without due process, ONLY because he is an American citizen.
Just look at the guy, does he look like he is being forced to be a terrorist. No. He looks excited to be a terrorist.
