3. Our last two Presidents have claimed the right to kill ANYONE
they deem an "enemy combatant" regardless of where they are on the planet. That means that American citizens could potentially get whacked in the future based solely on the word of the President. It is claimed that the Prez can do this without ever having to go through judicial review of any kind. Many here do not want to discuss this issue. They want to make it about OBL when the issue is about the claimed power to kill anyone without judicial review.
