  •  We are at war, but (0+ / 0-)

    not with Pakistan.  We are at war with an organization, or organizations, who are trying to prosecute war from within Pakistan.  We are not targeting the government of Pakistan or its institutions or infrastructure.  

    You use self-serving words like "assassination" and ""kill list."  You assert "no sort of due process" when that is the very issue we are debating.  I'm afraid that "due process," as you conceive it is only applicable to a dealing with punishment for a criime, not with a violent crime in progress.  We never use the term when dealing with a fleeing felon with a hostage.

    If a man is shooting at you, or others, you can return the fire. "Due process" is how you deal with punishing him, not with stopping him.  That's why the facts are so much more important than rhetoric right now.  I have not heard enough to justify the judgments you have made.

    A right answer to the wrong question is a wrong answer.

      What evidence do you have that anyone placed on the kill list was killed while actively engaged in hostilities?

      •  I say I need more facts to judge. (0+ / 0-)

        You ask what proof I have of that a hypothetical of mine  is a fact.  Not much of a conversation, is it?
