ACLU Sues U.S. Government Over Awlaki's Hit List Designation

Read entire article HERE.

"Last month Awlaki's father Nasser Al-Awlaki asked the ACLU and the Center for Constitutional Rights to challenge the government's placement of his son on a list of US Citizens that can be assassinated by US forces and intelligence services for ties to terrorism.

However, when an individual has been designated a terrorist by OFAC, it is illegal for anyone to represent that person legally, and thus contest the designation or the freezing of assets, unless OFAC grants special permission."

Note: Constitutional rights? What are they?

UPDATE: AUG 4, 2010 Treasury unit grants license for al-Awlaki lawyers
