Tim, keep in mind that US laws were written by people that some potty old duffer in England would have loved to order a drone strike on.

Interesting but historically incorrect. The Brit politicians of the day were very careful to follow the "no kill" on political leaders rules. They wouldn't even allow Napoleon to be terminated though a few Royalist French officers were not so sensitive and wanting no more to do with guarding him in his new island abode eventually poisoned him.
