Killing from behind

One of the few positive accomplishments of the Obama administration--indeed, perhaps the only one--is the targeted killing of Al Qaeda leaders and their associates, from Anwar al-Awlaki to Osama bin Laden himself. I've never been comfortable with the notion of assassination, especially when carried out by military forces--not so much because of the horrors of extrajudicial killing, but because of the effect upon the troops who must carry it out. But I'm glad these murderous nutters are gone. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
