This is an example of being so open minded, your brains fell out of your heads.

Look, I'm concerned about the Patriot act, the GPS tracking case to be heard by the Supreme Court & many other ways in which our rights are being trampled.

I don't worry for a millisecond about some insane people, that are at least inspiring others to attack us, being taken out.

If you're so worried about this, you're welcome to go to these places and attempt a citizen's arrest.

"His name came up..." Yes of course, and Saddam Hussein unplugged premies incubators in Kuwait.

Anyone actually believe any of the USG pravdaganda any more?

I've got a bridge to sell. Just leave me a bid in the comments.

What alAlawki was guilty of was youtube and speaking truth about USG policy.

Gupta, you are very brave with other peoples lives. He deserved no quarter, it is a war. Would you have us arrest him or Bin Ladin. Maybe you would do the arrest yourself.

Please address the issue of the Fifth Amendment, ""No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law", and what due process of law was applied to al-Awlaki.
