    Just wanted to let people know that the author of the still-secret(!) justifications for drone strikes against American citizens overseas is being considered by the Senate for a Federal appeals court judgeship.

    If this concerns you, or you would like to have the written justifications released for public view by the citizens they target, contact both Senator Murray and Senator Cantwell to tell them your opinions.

    Tell us more about it. We are out of town and have not read the paper.

    I’m pretty sure it was for drone strikes against US citizens believed to be members of al-Qaeda. I guess we will know more when the memos are released.

    JR – yep, *IF* the memos are ever released — the administration currently refuses to release them. Here’s the story I read:
