what is wrong with you people?

Today's CNN Poll asked the question: Should U.S. law be changed to allow the assassination of hostile foreign leaders? The results are 69% in favor. Not that this is a scientific poll or anything, right?

Manuel Noriega was kidnapped from Panama, brought to the U.S., and now is spending his reminaining days in prison. But at least he got a trial. He was permitted to defend himself.

Are 69% of internet clicking individuals telling us that due process is optional? What if we decide that due process is optional for everyone? Or at least for people who answer internet polls. "I didn't mean to vote yes, I have a reason, don't hurt me!" Sorry, sir, your defense is irrelevant, and I'm coming to your house and breaking your arms now.
