Without a declaration of war or even overt congressional approval, U.S. troops are now involved in yet another military conflict, this one in Yemen.

According to the January 27 Washington Post , this latest military venture began in mid-December, when President Obama unilaterally approved a plan for the clandestine Joint Special Operations Command (or JSOC) to join government forces in tracking down and killing suspected terrorists.

The campaign included a missile strike by an unmanned drone against an installation containing a U.S. citizen suspected of ties to al-Qaeda. That individual, Anwar al-Aulaqi, wasn?t killed; however, notes the Post, ?he has since been added to a shortlist of U.S. citizens specifically targeted for killing or capture?.?

We?ve heard a great deal about the federal government?s ?no-fly? list. Now we learn that the government maintains what could be called a roster of U.S. citizens subject to summary execution on presidential order.

When the president can kill citizens at whim, in what sense could it be said that we?re free citizens governed by law?

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
