From a CNN article on Anwar al-Awlaki:
One of the bizarre facts in this case is that while the son [al-awlaki] repudiates the U.S. legal system, declaring it has no jurisdiction over Muslims, his father is using that very court system on behalf of his son.
That’s totally bizarre. Imagine, using one part of the constitution–the first amendment freedom of speech–and then expecting to be protected by a completely different part of the constitution–the fifth amendment, which prevents the government from killing you whenever it wants to. What will these spoiled US citizens want next: freedom from slavery and the right to vote?
