designating people to be assassinated on Tuesday.

Most recently he publicly spoke about the drone program calling it moral, ethical and just and has been known in the past to back the use of CIA torture to extract information from alleged terrorists.

According to a report from the Associated Press, John Brennan has now seized the lead in choosing who will be targeted for drone attacks and raids.

The report revealed that President Obama has delegated him the sole authority to designate people for assassination under the United States top-secret assassination program.

As the Associated Press describes it, “The effort concentrates power over the use of lethal U.S. force outside war zones within one small team at the White House,” following criticism that sometimes the C.I.A. kills people whose identities it doesn’t even know.
