Unreviewable Authority to Execute Americans Without Charge or Trial

There’s a limit to what an Executive Order, by the President should encompass.

 

The Center For Constitutional Rights (CCR) and the American Civil Liberties Union today filed a brief in federal court responding to the Obama administration’s claims that no court should have any role in establishing or enforcing legal limitations on the executive’s authority to use lethal force against U.S. citizens who the executive has unilaterally determined to pose a threat to the nation. The groups’ brief came in their lawsuit challenging the government’s claimed authority to carry out targeted killings of U.S. citizens outside the context of armed conflict who do not pose an imminent threat.
