Dopey Ron Paul on Al-Awlaki Vaporizing: We're 'Assassinating American Citizens Without Charges'

Why does anyone take this crank seriously?
Paul, a Texas congressman known for libertarian views, says the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki on Yemeni soil amounts to an "assassination." Paul warned the American people not to casually accept such violence against U.S. citizens, even those with strong ties to terrorism.

Anwar al-Awlaki was considered one of the most influential al-Qaida operatives wanted by the United States. U.S. and Yemen officials say he was killed in a U.S. air strike targeting his convoy Friday morning.

Paul made the comments to reporters after a campaign stop Friday at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire. He said America's leaders must think hard about "assassinating American citizens without charges."
I guess the fact this piece of shit was born on American soil makes him immune from drone strikes.

And Paulifarians are more annoying than Jehovah's Witnesses. On point - I believe it is still in the law that one may forfeit his US citizenship by serving in the armed forces of a hostile power, or otherwise committing overt hostile acts against the US.

This sh1tsack may have been born a US citizen, but he shed it when he kissed Mohammed's ass for al quaeda.

There should be a straightforward way to indict and strip citzenship or find the person of traitorous acts.

I find the lack of following some perfunctory legal procedure disturbing. It shouldn't be up to a decison by a president on calling for a specific targeted attack on a citizen (why these bastards retained citzenship this long is another issue.)

In Iraq and Afghnistan, there is a clear case for calling strikes as part of an authorized military action. If someone hangs with bad guys and is an American, tough luck. In this case, BHOnehead rushed to the camera to say HE authorized the specific targeting.
