We are at war and you take out your declared enemy before he has a chance to kill you. Rules of engagement are different and are dictated by the situation on the ground.
So, as you put it I can go walk into a crowded theatre, kill 50 people and if I'm shot the people who shot me need to be incarcerated and would be wrong? You ever heard of "Kill 1 to save a thousand"?, this applies here.

you're applying emotion to your statement but a logical person would understand that one would have to be tried for high treason and if convicted, which the government shouldn't have any difficulty doing if they had the proof they said they did, he would be killed for his crimes.

I am sad to say, really I am, but there is no known account of Anwar Al-Awlaki renouncing his citizenship
Stunning. You have no idea what it means to be a muslim. Their faith and culture demands that they become muslims. They, by their acceptance of Islam, cannot be the citizens of any country. They are members of the Ummah. You confer upon them the rights of our culture while they seek to destroy it.
Please learn about Jihad and Islam before you hand over the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to those who would see them burned on the altar of Allah.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner has just announced that he has has told the CIA that it can assinate American citizens in direct violation of the constitution and due process laws, in voilation of Federal laws and in violation of treaties to which the US is a party.

Traitor and Enemy Combatant on foriegn soil? Yes
Protected by US laws?? WHAT???
US Laws do not apply to foriegn combatants or foriegn soil.
If they were then we should prosecute the entirety of the US Military as well.

When you commit Treason and go over to the enemy, you are no longer a citizen but an ex-patriot and give up all rights. As an enemy combatant you become a target in War.
