You didn't read the memo or the article very carefully then. Neither establishes a threshold for this type of action. They point out reasons why the al-Awlaki killing is acceptable, but they go out of their way to say that those reasons aren't minimum requirements. IOW, no standard is set and a strike against OWS isn't ruled out (although it's certainly unlikely, IMO).
