White House drafting drone 'rule book'

November 25, 2012 by legitgov

White House drafting drone 'rule book' 25 Nov 2012 Facing the possibility that President Obama might not win a second term, his administration accelerated work in the weeks before the election to develop explicit rules for the targeted killing of terrorists by unmanned drones, so that a new president would inherit clear standards and procedures, according to two administration officials. The attempt to write a formal rule book for targeted killing began last summer after news reports on the drone program, started under President [sic] George W. Bush and expanded by Mr. Obama, revealed some details of the president's role in the shifting procedures for compiling "kill lists" and approving strikes. The draft rule book for drone strikes that has been passed among agencies over the last several months is so highly classified, officials said, that it is hand-carried from office to office rather than sent by e-mail.
