Former NLG President and professor at Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, Marjorie Cohn, will discuss her new book, Drones & Targeted Killing: Legal, Moral & Geopolitical Issues.
The Bush administration detained and tortured suspected terrorists; the Obama administration assassinates them. Assassination, or targeted killing, off the battlefield not only causes more resentment against the United States; it is also illegal. This talk will explore the legal and geopolitical considerations of targeted killing and resulting civilian casualties, and evaluate the impact on relations between the United States and affected countries.
