Re: “U.S. drone executes 2 American citizens” (TNT, 10-1).

The headline is disgusting and inexcusable.  How biased can you get?

Yes, they may have been U.S. citizens, but they were terrorists who were dedicated to destroying the United States and killing our citizens. The fact that they were U.S. citizens should in no way guarantee their immunity. They had in effect, declared war on the U.S.

I wouldn’t object to a headline that said: “U.S. drone executes 2 terrorists.” That’s accurate.

    How biased can you get? Let’s not forget we ARE talking about the tribune.
    This abomination is only about 1/2 as biased as they have shown themselves to be over the last several yrs

    You know, I looked throught the Constitution and a couple other founding documents and nowhere could I find anything that provides the unstated but implied exception Mr. Bernd uses for the basis of his argument. Hmmmmmm??

    Mr. Bernd apparently has been given access to evidence the government has not allowed anyone else to see as he seems to know these guys were terrorists. We have heard much about their activities but no proof has been shown, no charge has ever been brought, and given that the CIA, FBI and Military have been know to have been mistaken it might be that Al-Awlaki was all mouth and no operation at all.
