AbstractIn 2013, a whistleblower made the U.S. policy of using unmanned ariel drones to kill known and suspected terrorists around the globe. In this program, a panel of national advisors are responsible for selecting individuals to be added to the kill list, sometimes lisking individuals who have merely drawn the attention of authorities by their posts on social media. Some of individuals on the kill list have been American citizens, and some innocent civilians have also been accidently targeted.
