U.S. Releases Redacted Drone Strike ‘Playbook’

Military.com reports that “the U.S. government has released a once-secret policy document dubbed ‘the playbook’ that shows how officials select drone targets in areas outside war zones and the key role the president has in the process.”

“The 18-page Presidential Policy Guidance (PPG), published… by the American Civil Liberties Union, provides more details than the government had previously revealed on how drone strikes are approved.”

“‘Actions, including lethal action against designated terrorist targets, shall be as discriminating and precise as reasonably possible,’ the PPG states.”
