    I have to admit that your approach is not "nuanced". Or based on any sensible legal interpretation either!

    All war is abhorrent. But if the time to end the war on Al Qaeda has come to an end, then the Congress should repeal the AUMF.

    In the meantime, it is not quite right to say that the president can kill anyone under the AUMF.

    The correct statement is that, under the existing authorization of Congress, the president can kill anyone he believes is a member of Al Qaeda.

    If you don't like that, then you must not approve of the fact that soldiers can kill people whom they determine are enemy forces without getting a court order first.

    That's why we call it war.
