"only applies to American citizens" Please be aware that there is considerable constitutional opinion that since the Constitution says "all persons", that the some rights and protections of the amendment applies to even non-citizens.

How can we justify a Alwar Alwaki's son, a sixteen year old and american citizen being targeted and ASSASINATED along with others by our Drone program? This is absolutely absurd.

Off topic of today's cyberwar segment, but in Sanger's usual oeuvre....please ask him his thoughts on Kerry (and Obama) agreeing to this Syrian "peace conference" with Putin.
Isn't he just being played by the Russians to buy time for Assad?

Won't this dragged-out process give the new fresh troops from Hezbollah and the IRGC more time to carve out an Alawite fortress state for Assad to retreat to?
