Abstract

*Mary Ellen O'Connell* was quoted in AP's "US suspect possibly targeted for drone attack" via @NBCNews, Feb. 10.

Mary Ellen O'Connell, a professor of international law at the University of Notre Dame, said there is a school of thought that the Obama administration's drone policy is "lawless."

"Why should the Justice Department issue the execution warrant for anyone abroad? The fact that they give extra scrutiny only because he's an American exacerbates this negative impression," O'Connell said.
