This will probably go contrary to many of my friends. But, it is what it is……..
Many years ago, I took an oath to uphold and defend our constitution against enemies both foreign and domestic. I’ve never recanted that oath.
In my view, I never believed any of the rights, privileges and protections, expressed and implied by the Constitution of the U.S. ever extended to people that were not or are not citizens.
But to our citizens, <b>all of it always applied.</b> This notion has been tested. It still holds true in my mind.
Those scumbags deserved to die. They deserved to die in a manner I can’t even fathom. Slow and torturous. And, I can’t say I’m unhappy that they’re gone.
But, what happened in Yemen was as much wrong as what happened in Waco, and Ruby Ridge. This isn’t acceptable.
It may be that we should redefine what it is to be a citizen. I think we should. I also think we should employ the vehicle expressed in the Constitution for findings of treason and execute the punishment to the fullest. But, I also think the execution of American citizens without due process is murder. And I believe the people responsible for such should be held to the maximum punishment allowed by our Constitution and our justice system.
Disagreements are welcomed. Please make them logical.
