Backstory: US Drones Strikes and the "Disposition Matrix"

Thursday, October 25, 2012

During Monday's Presidential debate, moderator Bob Schieffer asked just one question about U.S. drone-strikes, despite the fact that the controversial drone program is now one of the cornerstones of the country's counter-terrorism policy. Washington Post intelligence reporter Greg Miller tells us about his investigation of a next-generation targeting list called the “disposition matrix.” He's written about it in the Washington Post's special report, the Permanent War.

John, we next will tele port to the past and kill the parents before the birth of these vermin.

I am all for the killing of these individuals, less threat to our people.

Next-generation targeting.
About as leaden and inappropriate a term as the Bush administration calling their operation a Crusade.
Let's target the next generation. What? At the schoolbus-stop?
