Taking out citizens without a trial is a BAD idea, I don't care where they are or who they are with. Once the precedent is established they will expand the targets and where they can do it.
I wonder how many armed drones are orbiting the Fox News Center. I bet they start blacking out all the window soon. You know just in case.
I think that any U.S. Citizen who is a traitor to the United States is one of the lowest forms of life on Earth, and deserves the death penalty, BUT, that does NOT mean that the Government should ever execute a U.S. Citizen without due process. IMO Rights guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution are also collective (not sure I am using the right word) rights. To me, if the Government infringes or ignores the Rights of one U.S. Citizen they are harming ALL U.S. Citizens by detracting from what I consider the sacredness of those rights. IMO the Federal Government's two primary duties, which are of equal importance, is provide for the common defense, and to safeguard our RIGHTS. Considering that we have somewhere around 12 million invaders in our Country and the U.S. President is choosing U.S. Citizens to murder without any semblance of due process, I would say that the U.S. Government isn't doing a very good job at either.

Agreed ^^ Also, who's to say who is a traitor these days? With all the acts, laws, etc., our wonderful gobernment uses any excuse to call someone a traitor or a terrorist...especially ones who expose their agenda...
Since 9/11, everything created to combat who we were initially told were the enemy have been used against all of us. There is no reason to believe anything else will not be used against those deemed threats to the agenda.
While flag-waivers were all for it, some of us were dead-set against many of the things being devised for our "security." Today, most of the things are merely assumed to be a part of life. Will this be the same thing?
