Drone strikes: Beyond citizenship
An open debate over using drones to target individual terrorists is long overdue. Many Americans object to the killing in Yemen of Anwar Awlaki, a fellow citizen, without affording him due process. But the Supreme Court has ruled that the particular "process" that is constitutionally "due" varies with context and competing interests. So how much process was Awlaki due? My answer is some, but not in a court.
