Did you get the many ironies of the newly-released DOJ memo on drone wars? Recall that the administration tried to deep-six it, while all the while releasing Bush-era Office of Legal Counsel memos in order to embarrass their authors. Then we learned why Obama kept his memo under lock and key. It authorizes the killing of al Qaeda members in foreign countries even if they aren’t plotting an attack on the U.S. No problemo. Just like skeet-shooting back at Camp David. The irony is that, back in 2009, the administration said we aren’t in a “war on terror.” We are so much more moral, so very much more sophisticated than that. We could just hug ourselves! But if Obama can pull the trigger on terrorsts who aren’t about to attack the U.S., what is that if not a war on terror?
