Al Qaeda suddenly sticklers for due process

“The Americans killed the scholar Shaykh Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan, but they did not prove any crime they committed and they never presented any proof against them from their laws of unjust freedom,” AQAP wrote according to a translation of the statement by Flashpoint Partners. “So, where is the freedom, justice, human rights and respect of freedoms they boast of? Did America become so suffocated that it contradicted — and everyday it contradicts — these principles it claims it established its country on?”

AQAP joined other critics — including presidential candidates Paul and Gary Johnson and organizations such the ACLU — in accusing the U.S. of acting unconstitutionally by assassinating a U.S. citizen without due process
