    That's what this case is about.  No government should have the power to assassinate one of its own citizens without having that individual respond to the charges.  Capture and try, fine.  Execute on sight?  Not fine.

    With this case, there is nothing stopping the government from doing this again to another individual.  

    The government has claimed that the evidence against him is secret.

    The court refused to hear the case, and didn't say that there was some exception; the court said that it can't say whether the program of killing Americans without a trial and without emergency situations is legal.
