What can be a greater violation of the Constitution then claiming the right to kill ​ANY ​American, on the basis of "Trust me?

Any one 'Article of the Constitution' is not just one slice of the pie consisting solely for itself. 

There is nothing anywhere in the Constitution which gives anyone arbitrary power. What is this BS, about "one slice of pie? There is nothing ​anywhere in the Constitution giving anyone, or even any body of people, such power.

The case for Anwar al-Awlaki having 'Constitutional Rights' is being perpetuated by many of our enemy's..... Thus we need to "Trust" our President, whoever that may eventually be on this matter.

Anwar Al-Awaki had all the rights of an American Citizen. The law requires that if sufficient evidence existed for him to be charged with commiting a crime, then the Administration had to go before a Judge, to get an arrest warrant. Or to go before a Jury and secure an indictment. Since Mr. Awalaki was targeted for death over a year before he was killed, one would think that getting such a warrant or indictment would have been simple.

And in fact, not only would it have been simple, getting such a warrant or indictment would have made killing him perfectly legal.

There was no reason to abrogate the Constitution, none of which can you actually quote, to back up your ludicrous claims. ​

This administration by it's very refusal to get at a minimum, an arrest warrant, or better, an indictment, is in fact claiming to be above the law.

An indectment for killing. On such a state of law I can renounce.

A prosecutor can go before a Judge, and produce enough evidence to secure an arrest warrant. If the arrest cannot be made, then the person can be killed, and such a death would be legal. For example, even if Mr. Awalaki could not be reached, news of the warrant could have been given to him through his American lawyer (Yup, he had an American lawyer). He then has the duty as a citizen to turn himself in.

Thus the fact that many US arrest warrents are titled, "Wanted, Dead or Alive."

And I thought warrants like this exist only in Wild West movies.

But no warrant was issued, and Mr. Awalaki had no ​legal reason to surrender himself.
