The Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan assassinations (5)

Scott Horton appeared on RT's The Alyona Show talking about the Awlaki/Khan assassination (the video is dated 10/04/2011 at the show's YouTube channel):



He comments on it at his blog, The Secret Al-Awlaki Memo No Comment 10/03/2011:

The major questions following al-Awlaki’s death are simple: Why has the Obama Administration failed to make public its rationale for the strike, including the considerations that led it to the conclusion that it can use lethal force against a U.S. citizen under such circumstances? And why has it kept the Justice Department memorandum a secret?
This practice of the Obama Administration, continuing the policy of the previous Cheney-Bush Administration, is very dangerous. The RT video at around 7:15 shows Dick Cheney demanding an apology from the Obama Administration for criticizing their illegal policies because he's continuing so many of them. And, so far as we know, event he Cheney-Bush Administration never ordered a specific hit on an American citizen.
