They Got the Right Result, Anyway


The New York Times carries this story about the apparently months-long wrangling inside the Administration about whether the United States could legally kill top al Qaeda  operative Anwar al-Awlaki.  Mr. al-Awlaki was up to his eyeballs in various grisly terror plots against this country, from the underpants bomber to the Ft. Hood massacre.

My thinking is, as usual, more simplistic than the Administration's:  We're at war; he's the enemy.  The idea that the Bill of Rights requires us to seek an arraignment date for a Jihadist mastermind planning more mass murder from his hideout in Yemen is passing strange.

Well, whatever.  This is what OLC does now, it seems.  As I  say, at least they got the right result.
