    Sure, maybe we'd be a lot better off with them dead.

    But it's been illegal since 1976.

    Yet again, the point is that the law has been subverted so that those in power are allowed to break it with impunity, while the rest of us are held to it.

    •  A-Q declared war on US. It was thus legal. Just (0+ / 0-)

      like assasinating Saddam or Hitler would have been.

      Now, members of other 'terrorist' groups may be different...

      •  Um, nope. No (1+ / 0-)

        such 'war exclusion' in Reagan's 1981 Executive Order.

        Assassination is illegal, period.

        Now getting shot during a war isn't assassination, it's a possibility.

        But we still don't have 'assassination squads' roaming around.  We have seals and rangers and whatnot, who may, as part of their duties, shoot enemies.

        Not Blackwater mercs.
