8:07 to 9:07AM MST: MARJORIE COHN…Today Glen Greenwald writes in “Chilling Legal Memo from Obama DOJ Justifies Assassination of U.S. Citizens” that: “The most extremist power any political leader can assert is the power to target his own citizens for execution without any charges or due process, far from any battlefield. The Obama administration has not only asserted exactly that power in theory, but has exercised it in practice. In September 2011, it killed U.S. citizen Anwar Awlaki in a drone strike in Yemen, along with U.S. citizen Samir Khan, and then, in circumstances that are still unexplained, two weeks later killed Awlaki’s 16-year-old American son Abdulrahman with a separate drone strike in Yemen.Professor at Thomas Jefferson School of Law and former president of the National Lawyers Guild, Cohn is also the author of The United States and Torture. She said today: “The white paper runs afoul of international and U.S. law. It allows the killing of a U.S. citizen who is not on the battlefield if ‘an informed, high level [government] official’ thinks the target is a senior al-Qaeda leader who poses an imminent threat of violent attack against the U.S. The memo permits the government to target anyone remotely associated with al-Qaeda even when there is ‘no clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons and interests will take place in the immediate future.’
