Summary
"The Drone Memos is a groundbreaking volume that collects and explains the legal documents underlying the Obama administration's hugely controversial program of remote-control assassination. Jameel Jaffer led the ACLU legal team that sued for the release of these documents. In The Drone Memos, he compiles the legal memos, white papers, and government speeches that, taken together, ratified and even expanded the Bush administration's "war on terror." These documents are now key precedents, and they will be debated inside and outside the United States for years to come. In a powerful introduction, Jaffer contextualizes and explains the memos and connects the legal abstractions to the real-world violence being perpetrated in our names. The memos, he argues, place astonishingly broad power in the hands of future presidents--power that the Constitution never envisioned, and that will almost certainly be abused"--
