Bone McAllester Norton attorney Alex Little appeared on FOX News yesterday in a story on the release of a memo formally acknowledging the CIA’s role in a drone program that resulted in the 2011 killing of an American Islamic militant. Talking to anchor Shepard Smith, Alex commented on how the U.S. government justified the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki without due process of law. “They justify it predominately under the theory that he’s an enemy, we’re at war, and we can kill enemies at war. That’s the base motivation that’s going on behind this memo.” They discussed possible concerns over a government making exceptions to the legal course in the future, based on this occurrence.
