(the Obama administration is truly blessed by the gods, is it not?) — someone just happened to provide a lengthy, confidential Justice Department memo setting out the administration’s justifications for its assassination program to NBC News.

Unlike the bombast that characterized the Bush administration’s assaults on U.S. and international law, the Obama regime tends to dribble out its rationales for gutting the Bill of Rights and every notion of global legality.
