WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, spoke out this Friday about drones, targeted killing and President Obama’s ‘Kill List’ while speaking with Bill Maher.
Assange noted that:
You can be killed by someone in the White House, the president on down, completely arbitrary reasons. You won’t know you’re on the kill list until you’re dead.
Lawyers, if you have a suspicion you might be on this kill list, they can’t even represent you. That was the case for our lawyers, the Center for Constitutional Rights, trying to represent Anwar Al-Awlaki — who was discovered to be on that kill list, and his son — wasn’t even allowed to be his lawyer, because he was part of a proscribed organization.
