The Times is troubled that the President is killing people . . . "without the consent of someone outside his political inner circle." One of the great moral imponderables is supposedly, like, How Do Good People Do Evil Things? But really it's fairly obvious:
A unilateral campaign of death is untenable. To provide real assurance, President Obama should publish clear guidelines for targeting to be carried out by nonpoliticians, making assassination truly a last resort, and allow an outside court to review the evidence before placing Americans on a kill list. And it should release the legal briefs upon which the targeted killing was based.Publish clear guidelines! That's your answer for everything! Sleep well, America; don't worry world. Our Kill Lists have the best warranty in the industry. 10 years, parts and maintenance! No deductible! Built to last!
