    the status quo?  Obviously, if we could hale the dude into court, nobody's having this discussion.  Ironically, Alwaki did have notice and his parents went to court to stop it - as he could have done.  Giving notice could be problematic in all cases, though, as it could compromise informants.  I'd suggest a law that says the intelligence agencies have to present sufficient evidence that they meet the minimum legal framework above, and they must also disclose evidence tending to suggest the contrary.  

    I'm trying to think of ways to solve tough problems, not come up with ways to deny their existence.

    Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.

      And ignored the numerous statements by powerful American officials that they wanted him killed.  Seems fair and reasonable.
