Was The Al-Awlaki Killing Unconstitutional?

Was the Al-Awlaki killing unconstitutional?

The due process-free assassination of a U.S. citizen now reality

Civil libertarians say it was not justified; international law experts say it was

These are questions that need to be asked, just as we need to ask about our increasing use of drones, as well as our bold endeavor into Pakistani territory, and for the killing of Osama bin Laden. From most reports, such really strong and aggressive tactics have Al Qaeda on the run, if not on the brink.

Does that success justify the tactics?
