Rachel Maddow Questions Legality Of Anwar al-Awlaki Killing (VIDEO)

I am manifestly a "librul" and I do watch Rachel often. I happened to see this show and therefore was very interested to read these reactions.

But when I think back to 9/11 and what these fanatics have put us through (I wasn't at the site but witnessed the destructio­n of the second tower from a nearby window and the subsequent chaos during the long walk home.), I have to, not so reluctantl­y, agree with Obama's actions especially when his people got Osama for whom I, not surprising­ly, didn't shed a tear.

I am angrier at the Bush Administra­tion's subsequent inaction except for using the situation as a pretext to lie us into a war in Iraq which, at that time, had nothing to do with the WTC.

I don't think we should show any sympathy to those who are plotting against us wherever they were born.
