Human Rights Activists Slam White House Drone "Rulebook"

Upset rules on drone strikes were codified and not reformed


Antiwar and human rights groups have reacted with ire to news,reported by the New York Times, that the Obama administration has sought to codify its drone program.

The Times reported late last week that, concerned that an "amorphous" set of guidelines over targeted killings could be passed on to a new president, efforts were made ahead of the election to pin down a clearer set of rules about kill lists and drone strikes approvals.
