To the Editor:
     Before discussing how best to destroy Anwar al-Awlaki, we must remember that he was never convicted of a crime. He was never charged with a crime. In American jurisprudence, that makes him an innocent citizen. Neither the president of the United States nor anyone else had any legitimate power to destroy him, whether by Hellfire missile or by attacks on his character.
