Obama approves US citizen for targeted killing

"The Obama Administration has authorised the targeted killing of an American citizen in what is believed to be an unprecedented move in the War against Terror.

According to US media reports, the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who has been linked to last November's attack on Fort Hood, Texas, and the failed Christmas day airline bomb plot, has been approved for capture or killing."

Is is right / justified to order the killing of people without trial (like the Nazis did in the 30ies or the Israelis still do) or are we doing exactly the same thing now we accuse our enemies of doing? What about human rights?
