TCP’s Liberty and Security Committee released a statement on February 25 arguing that the Obama administration’s refusal to make public the legal rationale for its targeted killing of suspected terrorists violates constitutional principles of checks and balances, and calling on the president to release the rules of operation and all legal guidance about the program to Congress and the public.
TCP suggests that the PCLOB should begin by focusing on the following three priority areas where independent review and oversight are most urgently needed: (1) programs whose very existence is classified and that remain largely if not entirely unknown to the public; (2) the targeted killing or drone program; and (3) programs that involve intelligence collection on, and government monitoring of, U.S. persons and their personal information.
