and people were upset because Bush tapped a few phones?????
"The Obama administration’s decision to authorize the killing by the Central Intelligence Agency of a terrorism suspect who is an American citizen has set off a debate over the legal and political limits of drone missile strikes, a mainstay of the campaign against terrorism.
The notion that the government can, in effect, execute one of its own citizens far from a combat zone, with no judicial process and based on secret intelligence, makes some legal authorities deeply uneasy. "
How is this not an abuse of power and a violation of due process?

Administration officials take the view that no legal or constitutional rights can protect Mr. Awlaki, a charismatic preacher who has said it is a religious duty to attack the United States and who the C.I.A. believes is actively plotting violence.
Sorry, but if that is true, I don't really have a bad feeling towards the execution. In case you didn't notice, that means he hates America and wants it attacked.

You missed the question, Wenona: How is this not an abuse of power and a violation of due process?
You do understand what due process is? I hope you do.
Even someone committing treason deserves a fair trial. It's one of our basic constitutional rights.
