Republican presidential candidate says the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki is an assassination.

Paul warned the American people not to casually accept such violence against U.S. citizens, even those with strong ties to terrorism.

Fellow candidate Gary Johnson also raises questions.

“Let there be no doubt. We have to be vigilant, we have to protect the U.S. and U. S. citizens from terrorist attacks, and we have to aggressively pursue those who would do us harm. At the same time we cannot allow the War on Terror to diminish our steadfast adherence to the notion of due process for American citizens. The protections under the Constitution for those accused of crimes do not just apply to people we like — they apply to everyone, including a terrorist like al-Awlaki. It is a question of due process for American citizens.”
