It was not a theoretical question: Mr. Obama has placed himself at the helm of a top secret nominations process to designate terrorists for kill or capture, of which the capture part has become largely theoretical. .... underscored just what a moral and legal conundrum this could be. Mr. Obama is the liberal law professor who campaigned against the Iraq war and torture, and then insisted on approving every new name on an expanding kill list, .... it is the president who has reserved to himself the final moral calculation. He is determined that he will make these decisions about how far and wide these operations will go, said Thomas E. Donilon, his national security adviser. His view is that hes responsible for the position of the United States in the world.

...and just why aren’t the Lefties going bananas about this?????
I read this article this morning. It’s nothing but a fluff piece on a democRAT president who is hurting in the polls. The NYT would never have run a piece like this on Bush
They’re happy. They know it helps his campaign to be seen as tough. Why else is the Times printing an article about a top secret program?
Ya, and George W. Bush is regarded by the luntatic-left as some kind of war criminal. By their own standards Obama should be arrested and tried Nuremburg-style.
I thought he got the Nobel Peace Prize...
Yeah, let’s remember Bush was skewered for firing 3 U.S. attornies.
I need to add more here. Remember how ‘obsessed’ Bush was with getting Saddam. We need to know if Obama has a domestic terrorist list he is going down every day and analyzing.
Don't forget modern DICTATORS!
Just imagine substitute Obama’s name with Bush. I don’t think the headline from NYSlime would be fawning over ‘Bush’s Principles and Wills’.....
Obama is determined to have a second term whether we like it or not. He would run over his own mother with a bus to have a second term - that’s what thugs do. Leftists are mental.
How timely of the Times to give America a first-hand look at the Supreme Bruthah’s big nutz.
What a lie! The jug eared communist is out golfing. He doesn’t care about any kill list unless it is to grab credit such as when the Seals offed Osama Bin Ladin
The New York Times is dutifully transmitting from the DNC in an attempt to make Jug Ears look macho. Not a homo even though he made gay 100% OK in our military
Yes Obama has the will to have no priciples...
Yes Obama has the will to have no principles.
Secret Kill List Proves a Test of Obamas Principles and Will
I bet the other side also has a kill list and it is pointed at Washington, District of Crooks.
Let the games begin.
I used to wonder why he continued with the drone strikes until I deduced 1). He is taking out "the wrong" Jihadist... thus, the Muslim Brotherhood has been able to grow and unite like never before. 2). The strikes aggravate and really do grow the Islamic ranks.
That's what I thought this story was originally about when I first saw the title.
