As part of its war against violent extremism, the Obama administration now claims a right to kill Americans without a trial, without notice, and without any chance for targets to legally object.
How much evidence should the US government be obliged to show before it kills an American citizen? None, according to the Obama administration.
And how much evidence should the government be obliged to possess of an American’s wrongdoing before officially targeting them for killing?
That’s a secret.

As the OP stated, you now have a presidential dictatorship. He, whoever he is does not matter; nor does his party affiliation, has the right to make up his own laws as he sees fit.

Is it important? Yes. Has Obama overstepped his duties to the constitution? Yes. Is it his doing? No, it is just more apparent and open with him.

Sh*t bro this is big news,
And in the war on terrorism, Congress has authorized the president to use "all necessary and appropriate force."
That the President is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons.
President Bush and the Republican Congress authorized this and now it's being blamed on Obama as his personal "License to Kill"? The rats are coming out of the woodwork to discredit Obama, even if they have to do it with Bush and the GOP.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
