Mistaking Absolutism for Principle: If I Do It, It Is Not Illegal

I’ve written two posts in the last four days (here and here) on Obama’s use of drones to kill US citizens, with reference to the Department of Justice White Paper released a week ago that provides a legal framework for this practice. Perhaps there’s no need for a third. But how can I resist, when this week’s Tom Tomorrow* cartoon at Daily Kos captures the issues so well?

*By the way, consider supporting Tom Tomorrow’s This Modern World by subscribing. Each Friday (give or take a day), subscribers get a preview of the cartoon that appears at Daily Kos the following Monday, with additional commentary from Tom. This for just $9.99 per six months. With shrinking newspaper support for political cartoonists, direct reader support may be the only way for their work to survive. Tom asks only that you don’t share his cartoon until its Monday posting.
