"Won't call it murder by another name" Phil Ochs

“U.S. Airstrike Aims at Qaeda Cell in Somalia” (9 Jan07 NYT) I guess that resolves the question of capital punishment. Traditionally capital punishment follows arrest, prosecution and conviction. This “cops of the world” attitude skips over the fine points of law. I wonder how many of the “22-27” people our forces, commanded by our commander-in-chief murdered where actually a threat to the “homeland” and how many were women, children and infirm old men.
