CNN’s Roland S. Martin seems to think so…
“Look, I don’t want to kill someone. But if you threaten my family [and] one of our lives is in danger, I’m doing all I can to kill you. No apologies.”
– CNN contributor Roland S. Martin, commenting via Facebook on the U.S.-led attack that killed Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born radical Islamic preacher turned propaganda chief for al-Qaida, in Yemen on Friday. Some had questioned whether the killing of an American citizen without due process was unconstitutional. Martin was apparently not one of them.
It’s one thing to defend yourself, but another to actively search and kill someone.
Do you feel that the U.S. was wrong to kill Anwar Al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen, without due process??
