  1. So a couple of lawyer say it’s ok to execute an American over there. I guess they could have walked into the 16 year old’s classroom in Denver and shot him. Or maybe sent a drone into the school, what’s a few more collateral casualties. By the administration’s thinking, that’s what they deserve for associating with someone the government decides to kill.
