He seems like an out and out terrorist. Easy to write something like this when you haven't lost a loved one to a terrorist attack.

The point of a trial is to have a better justification than your feeling of him being "an out and out terrorist".

There is no feeling. He was clearly planning things. And the govt may have got a confidential order from a judge.

I'm curious, would a secret order from a judge remain secret after his death? Forever?

Depending on what intelligence went into it, yes.

Then at least preform a trial in absentia rather than just putting them on the kill list.
