Obama should release classified drone memo

Vicki Divoll, former general counsel to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and former deputy legal adviser to the C.I.A.’s Counterterrorism Center, has written on Op-Ed in the New York Times where she demands that the Obama administration releases classified Department of Justice “memos” that sketch out the legal justifications for targeted killings against Americans.

It is not just the most recent president, this one and the next whom we need to worry about when it comes to improper exercise of power. It is every president. Mr. Obama should declassify and release, to Congress, the press and the public, documents that set forth the detailed constitutional and statutory analysis he relies on for targeting and killing American citizens.
