I read Neil Steinberg’s Oct. 3 column, “Suddenly they trust Obama to kill people.”  I appreciate that he pointed out that the murder of Anwar al-Awlaki’s violates the Constitution.  As he pointed out, one branch of the government should not be given extreme power which could be abused and used to victimize an entire religious community.

Abu-Ghraib torture and prison abuse during President George W. Bush’s administration is an example of how our government has overstepped its boundaries.

I agree with Steinberg’s analysis that the American public is not as appalled by this incident as it should be.
