BREAKING - Leaked DOJ "White Paper" Shows Lax Policy on Drones

A leaked "White Paper" document uncovered by NBC has the White House distancing itself from the Department of Justice. The internal memo, according the Wall Street Journal, summarizes the legal justification for using drones to kill al Qaeda operatives, including American citizens.

The memo states:

"The government does not need evidence that a specific attack is imminent, only that the targeted suspect is involved in ongoing plotting against the United States."

As K. McKinnely pointed out in response to the administration's hypocritical stance against waterboarding: "There is such irony in Obama's outrage over 'torture.' Why torture when you can just kill with drones?"
