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.
