Following the President’s directed killing of American Anwar Awlaki, the hypocritical positions of the Obama administration on issues of constitutional important are clearly on the table. Hopefully, we will start to see an honest discussion about the relative legitimacy of targeted killings, treatment at Guantanamo. military commissions, etc. His views on the death penalty should also be brougt into this mix of legitimate discussion and debate . . . . but don’t hold your breath!
