Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who is running for the Republican presidential nomination, cried foul Friday over the killing of a radical U.S.-born cleric in Yemen without a trial, joining a chorus of civil liberties groups raising “due process” concerns over the drone attack.

“No one likes these kind of people, but I also like the rule of law and I like our Constitution, that you don’t just target people, assassinate them, someone who has not been charged and you have no proof of anything,” Paul told Fox News. “So if we want to protect American citizens from that type of justice, we have to be more cautious.”

U.S. counterterrorism forces not only killed Anwar al-Awlaki, an Al Qaeda leader, early Friday but also three other operatives, including American-born Samir Kahn, who edited a Jihadi Internet magazine. Al-Awlaki’s reputation as an instigator of terrorist plots had grown in recent years, especially in the power void created in Al Qaeda with the killing of Usama bin Laden earlier this year.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney refused to answer questions Friday about the legality of the government targeting and killing an American citizen without a trial.

  1. Ron has to learn the Pentagon doesn’t care about that piece of paper, but he knows this and he remembers what happened to a man who did try to stand against them too. There’s no international law as to what is allowed over-seas. And besides, they don’t have to ask for our permission, they do whatever they want. So, if you don’t like it; lump it. They’ll even remind you, stop the money and they’ll blow a hole in the center of the United States, or they’ll anthrax the Senate ! When it comes to their decision making, they’re a government to themselves, and don’t forget it !

  2. There isnt any proof that Alaki has been whacked or none that i am aware of but it creates a precedent that the govt is prepared to implement extra-judicial executions just like the EU.Use a high profile target to justify it in the first instance and then later on it becomes routine once TSHTF.

    Why do articles like these and many many others always use the term “Legality” and “Legal” and never ever use the term “Lawful” and “unlawful” which would be the appropriate terms to describe it rather than “legality” ?? There are some who are fixated on legalities and who know nothing about the rule of law and they think everything revolves around legalities which is deliberate since the rule of law and the judiciary are being sidelined in favor of the legislature and legalities.

    If this was unconstitutional then it was unlawful and NOT illegal and its more than likely that there is a legality that allows this type of thing.

  3. We are all next if the government deems us terrorists for reading books and visiting sights such as PP and Infowars. Bring it on houseboy, I hate waiting.
