The US President's Hit List or "Death by PowerPoint" -- Global Guerrillas - http://globalguerrillas.typepad.com/
"The US President's Hit List or "Death by PowerPoint" Last Friday, I wrote a post on how: US national security agencies increasingly use computerized analysis of collected data to designate a person as an enemy combatant. The US currently uses non-judicial Presidential "hit lists" to simplify the killing of people (including US citizens) designated as enemy combatants. The US is rapidly increasing its use of drones to kill enemy combatants nearly anywhere in the world 24x7x365. The scary part is that the combination of these trends is the path of least resistance to an automated totalitarianism." ‎- silpol
