WASHINGTON (Reuters) - American militants like Anwar al-Awlaki are placed on a kill or capture list by a secretive panel of senior government officials, which then informs the president of its decisions, according to officials.


There is no public record of the operations or decisions of the panel, which is a subset of the White House's National Security Council, several current and former officials said. Neither is there any law establishing its existence or setting out the rules by which it is supposed to operate.


The panel was behind the decision to add Awlaki, a U.S.-born militant preacher with alleged al Qaeda connections, to the target list. He was killed by a CIA drone strike in Yemen late last month.

And Bush/Chenney got raked over the coals for using enhanced interrogation, by Obama during his campaign. Now Obama just skips the interrogation and kills the MF'ers. ;)

Senior Government Officials may equal Senior Executive Service.

I'm curious Jim. Do you disagree with the killing of Awlaki? If so, have you asked your Congressman to bring forth impeachment charges against the President? Wouldn't you agree that, if indeed Obama authorized the "Murder" of Awlaki, then he is guilty of "High Crimes and Misdemeanors"?

We hashed that out in another thread.
