Obama’s Dictatorial Assassination Program

by James Bovard, Posted December 23, 2011

The Obama administration now claims the authority to kill American citizens without a trial, without notice, and without any chance for targets to legally object. The “targeted killing” program of George W. Bush’s administration has been radically expanded to include Americans far from any war zone. Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair testified last year that the targeting-to-kill decision depends on “whether that American is involved in a group that is trying to attack us.” But that is a very vague standard, especially for use in capital punishment. And the list of officially designated terrorist groups has little or nothing to do with whether organizations actually pose significant danger to the United States.
