ABSTRACT

Targeted Killing as an Element of U.S. Foreign Policy in the War On Terror   [open pdf - 415KB]

"This monograph examines the prohibition on assassination embodied within Executive Order 12333 and its effect on a U.S. policy of targeted killing of transnational terrorist leadership. Next this monograph will examine the numerous interpretations of applicable international law regarding terrorism and the states response. This examination will contrast the law enforcement model proposed by adherents of international humanitarian law, with international humanitarian law and the law of war model advocated by those who see the current 'war on terror' as an armed conflict between states and trans-national terrorists."
