9. Drop the Secrecy

 

I have no problem with the theory behind the President ordering drone strikes to kill Americans who are a threat. What I do have a problem is the secrecy of the process. What criteria is use? What is the level of evidence needed to “convict” a person of death? What are the safeguards? Is anyone in the Administration assigned the role of defender or devil’s advocate for the accused?

If Bush did this, we would all be up in arms, we can, and should be better than this.
