When the U.S. government kills people with drones — and it does so on a regular basis — bureaucrats play a key role in those killings. In this talk, Case Law alum (2006), and current Pepperdine Professor Gregory S. McNeal, JD/PhD, will describe the U.S. practice of targeted killings. His talk is based in part on field research, interviews, and previously unexamined government documents. Professor McNeal will begin by broadly describing the legal authorities that the U.S. government believes support the targeted killing program. Professor McNeal will then progressively narrow our focus, from laws, to policies and procedures, ultimately ending with the decision making process that precedes the launching of a strike. After examining this complex mixture of law, policy, and practice, Professor McNeal will then step back to examine the broader issues of accountability associated with the targeted killing program, and will discuss potential reforms.
