Beyond the courts, beyond the law

Here’s an article by Nasser al-Awlaki whose son, Anwar al-Awlaki, and grandson, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, both US citizens, were murdered by the US Government. I actually got shivers down my spine when I read this. Imagine yourself in his situation. Then think about why the US is a prime target for terrorist attacks.

“After the deaths of Abdulrahman and Anwar, I filed another lawsuit, seeking answers and accountability. The government has argued once again that its targeted killing program is beyond the reach of the courts. I find it hard to believe that this can be legal in a constitutional democracy based on a system of checks and balances.”

Flattr this!
