"What is the difference — legally and morally — between a sticky bomb the Israelis place on the side of an Iranian scientist’s car and a Hellfire missile the United States launches at a car in Yemen from thirty thousand feet in the air? How is one an ‘assassination’ — condemned by the United States — and the other an ‘insurgent strike’? What is the difference between attacking a country’s weapon-making machinery through a laptop computer or through bunker-busters? What happens when other states catch up with American technology — some already have — and turn these weapons on targets inside the United States or American troops abroad, arguing that it was Washington that set the precedent for their use? These are all questions the Obama team discusses chiefly in classified briefings, not public debates."

David E. Sanger - Obama’s Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power

The book everyone is angry about because it contains so much leaked information. Senator Dianna Feinstein said that she learned more from this book than she did as the chairperson of the intelligence committee. Get your hands on it, read it. This is important.
