#1 The Algerians should be held responsible for policing their own borders and protecting foreign nationals? Evidently we've permitted the Libyans to bring those responsible for the murders in Benghazi to justice. Why the suggestion of different methods?
This entire "kill list" strategy should concern everyone.

#2 Secret list? Published in the WSJ? I see that words like freedom, constitution and rights aren't the only terms that this a**holes don't understand.
I figure that the only secret list is the one with Tea Party members and NRA leaders on it.

#3 An attempt to make the "kill list" politically palatable and, eventually, a mundane thing?

#4 You must realize that "the media mollusk are not for peace; they're for Barack Obama. They've continued to depict this war president as your good kind of killer; a thoughtful, great leader who agonizes over his kill lists with excruciating care."

#5 I have no problem drone-zapping Belmokhtar if we find him in Mali. There's no effective indigenous government or military there, and the French certainly won't mind.
But if Belmokhtar is in Algeria then I expect the Algerians to deal with him. If the Algerians need help with that let them ask formally. That's why we have diplomats.

#6 What's with this administration? They have death panels and kill lists. Abortion is O.K. The death penalty is not O.K. Death by firearms is not O.K. Death by driving off a bridge while drunk is O.K.; murdering some little girl with a golf club, is O.K. Must be difficult dealing with all these inconsistencies.

#7 Don't get me wrong, some of these guys are deserving. Maybe I'm a little paranoid but I just want to see that our Constitution is adhered to when it come to citizens in the U.S. I see the Constitution being gradually eroded.

#8 Even if the Algerians ask nicely why should we make the US military a mercenary force to take out moslem nitwits the powers that be don't like. This playing cowboys and indians with moslems will not end well. I'd rather play allies and nazis. That ends better.
