The Obama administration has released a previously secret 18-page policy guidance document [President Policy Guidance, or PPG] that lays out how potential drone targets may be chosen and approved and the President’s role in the decision-making process… The release comes as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union
If the target is a US citizen or someone living in the US, or if there is not unanimous agreement among the President’s key national security officials regarding the nomination of the target, it will be submitted to the President for a decision. However, the head of the nominating agency themselves can approve lethal action against a proposed individual if all of the major national security officials unanimously agree it should be undertaken, but the President has to be apprised of the decision.

They make it sound like you are being nominated for an Oscar or Grammy award, but the reality is that the president and/or the head of the Killer Drone nominating agency and other national security bureaucrats are acting as Judge, Jury, and Executioners. What has happened to due process of law?
