Targeted Assassination

Mr Sununu is right to draw our attention to the O07bama "license to kill" (Boston Globe, February 17, 2013: A11).

Targeted assassination should not be one of our weapons in the War on Terror. We are fighting this war in defense of our values. When we descend to the tactics of the terrorists, we are ceding to them the victory.

We must find alternative procedures to defend ourselves that are consistent with the rule of law.

One of the enduring disappointments with the Obama Administration has been its failure to reverse the indefensible habits of the previous Administration.
