"'Targeted killing' has become the euphemism du jour. Remember 'harsh interrogation'? The conduct discussed in the killing memo was once simply referred to as assassination. More and more people are pushing back against the policy. They are reacting, no doubt, to the fact that President Obama has authorized many times the killings that President Bush did. Obama apparently authorized the killing of an American in Yemen, and he is now engaged in the building of drone bases to continue the campaign of assassination." Yes, he is worse than Bush, who was worse than Clinton who was worse than Daddy Bush. And, no doubt, whoever comes next will be worse yet.
