520 The Bush administration detained and tortured suspected
terrorists; the Obama administration assassinates them.
Assassination, or targeted killing, off the battlefield
not only causes more resentment against the United States,
it is also illegal. In this interdisciplinary collection,
human rights and political activists, policy analysts,
lawyers and legal scholars, a philosopher, a journalist,
and a sociologist examine different aspects of the U.S.
policy of targeted killing with drones and other methods.
It explores the legality, morality and geopolitical
considerations of targeted killing and resulting civilian
casualties, and evaluates the impact on relations between
the United States and affected countries. The book
includes the documentation of civilian casualties by the
leading non-governmental organization in this area;
stories of civilians victimized by drones; an analysis of
the first U.S. targeted killing lawsuit by the lawyer who
brought the case; a discussion of the targeted killing
cases in Israel by the director of PCATI which filed one
of the lawsuits; the domestic use of drones; and the
immorality of drones using Just War principles.
