I ran into some push-back recently when I came out against our government's decision to assassinate an American citizen without due process. (For a refresher, see "With al-Awlaki dead, it’s apparent Obama’s covert campaign knows no boundaries.")
To those of you who disagree with me, understand what such unilateral action gives rise to:
[U.S. Department of Justice] to America: we won't reveal the circumstances under which you can be assassinated by us.
The government can snuff your next-door neighbor and you are not to know why. You're just to accept the fact that the guy needed to be exterminated.
Is that where we want this country to go?
