(October 25, 2012) The SAME Unaccountable Government Agency Which Spies on All Americans Also Decides Who Gets Assassinated by Drones
The Washington Post reports that the same agency which spies on all Americans also decides who is assassinated by drone or otherwise:
"Over the past two years, the Obama administration has been secretly developing a new blueprint for pursuing terrorists, a next-generation targeting list called the 'disposition matrix.'
"The matrix contains the names of terrorism suspects arrayed against an accounting of the resources being marshaled to track them down, including sealed indictments and clandestine operations. U.S. officials said the database is designed to go beyond existing kill lists, mapping plans for the 'disposition' of suspects beyond the reach of American drones.
"Among senior Obama administration officials, there is a broad consensus that such operations are likely to be extended at least another decade.
