A Wing and a Payer...

After this week's "white paper" leak, exposed the Department of Justice's "profoundly disturbing" justification of drone executions of U.S. citizens a bipartisan group of 11 senators wrote a letter urging President Barack Obama to release the Justice Department's still unreleased full legal opinion on drone strikes. The white paper, which had already been shown to senators several weeks ago, contains a memo which outlines the administrations rationale for such attacks.  But wait! This isn’t  the actual legal memos used to authorize the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki and who knows who else....

 

 The Drone Report...

Ah, Did you notice anything in this report? A particular word, perhaps?  A that can get you sent away for upwards of 45 years? The word ‘leak’?

 In their letter to Obama, the 11 senators wrote, "We ask that you direct the Justice Department to provide Congress, specifically the Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, with any and all legal opinions that lay out the executive branch's official understanding of the President's authority to deliberately kill American citizens." – especially with the prospect of domestic “surveillance” drones on the horizon…

A not too distant horizon.
