11. How does it differ?

We 'assassinated' our enemies by bomb back then. We do it more 'carefully' and more 'targeted' now, but we still kill people, including many who have nothing to do with whatever fight we are in. And we do it in countries that we are not 'at war' in.

It's 'legal' because he says it is. Because W defined the war as being on a concept, not a country, and Obama ran with it.
