quote: I see your point but you seem to miss one of mine. Joining an anti-American terrorist group is, in my understanding, a renunciation of their status as an American citizen. At that point, they are no different than any other "high value" target in the opposition. Calling them "American Citizens" facilitates your argument but, by my understanding of the intent of our doctrine, it is a falsehood.Drone attacks on our home soil against our own citizenry (those who are not actively seeking to destroy our government and our people) would be a different matter entirely. Declaring yourself an enemy of the state leaves you a fair target for being treated as one.That said, I do agree with your concern if your example was more apropos.
