A drone strike in 2011 killed to American citizens associating with the terrorist group al-Qaida. The citizens had not been charged with crimes.  (Source: Drone Wars UK)
If Americans become “senior operational leaders” of al-Qaida or “an associated force”, the memo suggests a death strike

There were actually a total of three. Samir Khan- a naturalized citizen and al-Awlaki were killed in a drone strike on Sept. 30, 2011. Awlaki's 16 year old son was taken out in a mop-up drone strike two weeks later. The Awlakis were both born in the US.

Funny how GWB was called a war criminal by the same bunch who are using pretzel logic now to defend targeted assassinations of americans.

Not that I disagree in this case- but this slope is very slippery.
