In US, extrajudicial Killing (assisination) is legal if and only if the president of United States delcated the target,a US citizen, as enemy combatant and ordered his elimination.

First of all, the above is unconstitutional but no one cared about that fact. Obama did use his unconstitutional authority in the case of US Citizen eliminated in Yemen by hellfire attack.

In KSA, MBS thought that what goes for goose goes for the gander and ordered the elimination of KSA citizen by declaring him a traitor.

I do not see any difference but the political storm is like day and night.

Note, my post is not to start a flame war or defend anyone, rather to discuss historical facts and incidents in colocial terms.
Interesting perspective Beiruty. Thanks.
