The Obama/Biden administration used a drone strike to kill 16-year old American citizen Abdulrahman al-Awlaki in 2011.

They killed his father, U.S. citizen Anwar al-Awlaki, 2 weeks earlier by drone strike.

Neither were charged with crimes.

Should 2020 debates include this?
It won't happen, but I'd suggest a #BidenTownHall question would be whether Biden intends to continue using drone strikes to kill American citizens abroad, or if a Biden/Harris administration would commit to not doing so.

Is this a question you'd like asked?
My thread here isn't meant to condemn/condone Trump/Biden on foreign policy, but I would suggest that a turbulent time in America has meant that life/death foreign policy issues are left on the backburner, and Americans deserve to hear all candidates address them.
