Abstract

Mary Ellen O’Connell was quoted in the Rueters article Despite Obama’s new rules, no end in sight for drone war on May 23.

"Here we are, a year later, asking 'what has really changed?'" said University of Notre Dame law professor Mary Ellen O'Connell, a leading expert on extrajudicial killings who has testified before U.S. congressional committees. "The drones are still flying and the president still sees the attractiveness of this cold and antiseptic means of killing."
