ACLU wears heart on sleeve for Anwar Al-Awlaki

Now, the ACLU and the Center for Constitutional Rights say they've been asked by al-Awlaki's father to challenge the government's targeting of al-Awlaki, who is a U.S. citizen, born in New Mexico. The groups say the government has improperly "asserted authority to use lethal force against U.S. citizens located far from any battlefield without charge, trial, or judicial process of any kind."

Hopefully he will be killed by an airstrike soon and this will no longer be an issue.
