Targeted killing is now so routine that the Obama administration has spent much of the past year codifying and streamlining the processes that sustain it. The US agonized over the targeted killing of Bin Laden at Tarnak Farms in 1998; now it kills people it barely suspects of anything on a regular basis. The core guarantee of western justice since the Magna Carta was codified in the US by the 5th Amendment to the Constitution: 'No person shall...be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.' You simply cannot have a free society, a worthwhile political system, without that guarantee, that constraint on the ultimate abusive state power, being honored. Glenn Greenwald has written about the importance and danger in this secret policy change. http://tinyurl.com/97mw2ve
