Yes, United States citizens are entitled to due process. But why should they have that right if they desert their country and join or support foreign terrorists who want to kill us?

Let the commander in chief do his job the best way with the least amount of casualties — innocent Americans and innocent foreigners.

We have reliable intelligence as to who and where they are. Yes, there will be some mistakes.

We have drones that are being improved with excellent technology. They are controlled by experienced people and are becoming more accurate.

This is 21st-century war. In any war, there are casualties. Innocent people can be killed.

Do we fight this war with planes dropping bombs where we could lose some planes and their crews?

The possible count of innocents wounded or killed would be much higher. Do we send in troops, special forces and risk our own people?

We have drones that are controlled by highly trained technicians using good intelligence and programming them to do their job correctly.

Why must we fight a war with one hand tied behind our back?
