what was the constitution again?

From Truthout; also see Greenwald.

Americans can now be placed on a kill or capture list by a secretive panel of senior government officials, which then informs the president of its decisions, according to officials.

The 14th amendment to the US Constitution specifies that no citizen may be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process (a trial) which conforms to the rules established by the Fifth amendment.

So much for the rule of law.
