Tonawanda News — In a world where black and white judgments are impossible, I agree the Obama administration was justified in targeting Awlaki. Why should Constitutional rights apply to someone who’s forsaken those rights in favor of killing others who haven’t?
But in carrying out the act, the Obama administration has laid bare the obvious and painful truth that targeting one American might be justified, but others will inevitably be casualties along the way.
So there’s a logical question: Where do we draw the line?
I don’t have the answer. It’s plainly obvious the president doesn’t either.
