Then they could claim anyone as a terrorist, kill them, and then claim self defense.
No they couldn’t, the onus is on the administration to prove that the individual targeted for killing is a terrorist in accordance with American law
and that this individual presents a clear threat to the national security of America.
They couldn’t for example, brand you a terrorist unless you were to actually be regarded as a terrorist under American law or be a member of one of
the prescribed groups. If they were to walk up to your front door, shoot you in the head and then justify it by saying “he was a terrorist this
was self defence”, they would have to prove that you really were a terrorist who was a clear and present danger to the national security of the
United states and that it was not possible to capture you alive.
It seems that for some reason that there is an army of members on ATS who believe that “they” can brand anyone a terrorist and kill anyone
“they” want. This is not true.
