Letter: Obama outdoes Bush on lawlessness

Remember the uproar when the Bush administration announced that they could imprison Americans indefinitely and without due process? Obama has now outdone Bush in his disregard for our Constitution by ordering the assassination of the Americans Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan in Yemen. It seems that the Sixth Amendment, the right to a trial in criminal prosecutions, is one that Obama has chosen to ignore.
