ReleaseTheMemos.com: Tracking Obama’s Promise of Transparency on Targeted Killings

By: Thursday March 28, 2013 1:00 pm

President Obama finally promised to release legal memos on the Targeted Killing program to members of congressional intelligence committees on February 6, 2013, after over 21 formal requests from legislators.

But members of these committees have so far only been given limited access to 4 memos and the most important, including those addressing the government’s criteria for marking a ‘suspected terrorist’ for death or listing the countries in which we are conducting strikes, remain secret.

These memos are too important and the President must be held to his promise.

We won’t stop fighting until all 11 of these critical memos on the Targeted Killing program are made fully public, and we hope you’ll share ReleaseTheMemos.com to help us keep the public’s eye on the release of these memos.
