I just want to get some clarity on the situation....
No, you just want to make a feeble attempt to compare two completely different situations.
But I'll go ahead and clear it up for you...
water boarding is inhumane and illegal........murder/assassination of American citizens without due process=legal.
Yes. The person being water boarded is, presumably, in custody and not in a position to carry out any operations against the U.S. and therefore poses no threat. It would also be wrong to kill this person.
The person being taken out with a drone is in the field, capable of carrying out and actually carrying out operations against the U.S., and therefore poses a serious threat. It would also be OK to waterboard this person with a drone to neutralize the threat if we could do so.
