I guess this is a start, though I would like to see a lot more transparency and information about the drone strikes.

How many Americans have been killed by drone strikes?

How many, other than the two that I can think of?

In the case of those two, what objections does anyone wish to express?

I want a clear and unambiguous policy as to when, how and where an Admin can order any military strike to kill an American citizen, backed up by law. No games, no bullshit legalese.
Simple as that.

First two? So far so good. As far as we can tell.
but about the next few CIA heads, the next few presidents… What happens when it’s Mexican airspace?

Please, you make a distinction between our enemies, self declared and obvious in acts, as to their legal nationality? You think American born (and American in no other way) should give immunity without repercussion even if the chance of arrest and trial is zero?

I think the policy is clear and unambiguous to anyone. Give me an example of where you think not, please.

Simple as that.

The basic question can be made broader: “Under what circumstance does the US Executive branch get to play judge, jury and executioner?”

Mexican? That sounds racist, sort of. Why didn’t you say Canadian?

As to the rest about CIA or presidents, you sound like you have the conspiracy virus. Have you been spending time at WND?
