Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

George Bush's admin had a legal memo too - to define torture as necessary for security. [View all]

Now we have a legal memo rationalizing the killing of people, without the need for evidence, that are not even planning any specific action against the US.

It also, by the way, rationalizes the deaths of anyone that is near them when the missile explodes as "collateral damage".

Sometimes, what is necessary, is not to look more closely at the detailed rationalizations by crafty lawyers, but to take a step back and ask who we are and what we want to be -and what we want our children to be.
