ACLU Sues U.S. for Information on Targeted Killing Program

ACLU Sues U.S. for Information on Targeted Killing Program

Today we filed a lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act to demand that the government release basic — and accurate — information about the government’s targeted killing program.

Our government’s deliberate and premeditated killing of American terrorism suspects raises profound questions that ought to be the subject of public debate. Unfortunately the Obama administration has released very little information about the practice — its official position is that the targeted killing program is a state secret — and some of the information it has released has been misleading.

Our suit overlaps with the one recently filed by The New York Times insofar as it seeks the legal memos on which the targeted killing program is based. But our suit is broader. We’re seeking, in addition to the legal memos, the government’s evidentiary basis for strikes that killed three Americans in Yemen in the fall of 2011. We’re also seeking information about the process by which the administration adds Americans to secret government “kill lists.” We think it’s crucial that the administration release the legal memos, but we don’t think the memos alone will allow the public to evaluate the lawfulness and wisdom of the program.

We know something about the fall 2011 strikes from media reports. On September 30, the CIA and the military’s Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) jointly carried out the targeted killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen born in New Mexico, using missiles fired from unmanned drones in Yemen. A second U.S. citizen, Samir Khan, was killed in the same attack. Two weeks later, Anwar al-Awlaki’s son, Abdulrahman, a 16-year-old U.S. citizen born in Colorado, was killed in another U.S. drone strike elsewhere in Yemen. The administration has not adequately explained the legal basis for these strikes, and it has not explained the factual basis, either.

Soon after the fall 2011 strikes, we submitted a FOIA request to the CIA, Department of Defense, and Department of Justice (DOJ). Three months later, we have yet to receive a single document in response. Outrageously, the CIA and the DOJ Office of Legal Counsel responded by refusing to confirm or deny the existence or nonexistence of records responsive to our request. Essentially, these agencies are saying the targeted killing program is so secret that they can’t even acknowledge that it exists. More...

I despise the aclu. If they ever try to help TIs, I'm going to sue them for not helping me from the time I first wrote them to the time they help us all, WHeN WE PAY TO BE a PART OF THEIR UNION.

What if  one who is in power uses his connections to report an innocent person as a terrorism suspect because the latter has information that may be damaging to him?

What does the US government do when it realizes too late that they have been targeting the wrong person?

What's wrong with us

There is a signal on your head! On your head!! And we're just running around like headless roosters just chit chatting. We should do more! We need to get this horrible technology out in plain view of the public. Even if it means handing out pamphlets or emailing anyone and everyone. Or taking hostage of a television network, or wrecking havoc for those high up the political ladder in all forms of government. We just need to go that little bit further! Please we need to go hard!

"Hello Madminister, Also please note that these people use this technology for personal gain to. You can use it to get rich. The government sub contracts out these types of projects so it becomes used for other purposes. It is corruption."
