Abdullah al-Kidd

On March 16, 2003, al-Kidd was arrested at Dulles International Airport. Several days earlier, a judge had issued a material witness arrest warrant, and required his testimony in an upcoming trial; the FBI claimed (incorrectly) that al-Kidd had a one-way ticket to Saudi Arabia, and that since no extradition treaty existed between the US and Saudi Arabia, once he left he would not return.

Nine years into what the US used to call the "global war on terror," the nation still cannot agree on how to describe the struggle, how to characterise it, or on a logically consistent set of tools and procedures to conduct it. To some, this might seem unacceptable. I, however, would be far more critical if I did not harbor some degree of ambivalence myself.

Targeted Killing (ACLU)


This video from the American Civil Liberties Union condemns the U.S. government practice of issuing death sentences without due process as part of its targeted killing policy. "Targeted Killing" is being released to coincide with the filing today of an unprecedented lawsuit by the ACLU and the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) challenging the government's asserted authority to use lethal force against U.S. citizens located far from any battlefield without judicial process, and without disclosing the standards it uses to target individuals for death.
