DOJ OLC Targeted Killing Memo Released

This morning the 2nd Circuit published a redacted version of the long-sought Department of Justice OLC memo that authorized the killing of U.S. citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki. We’ve got the entire 2nd Circuit opinion (full text) and the OLC memo itself (full text) available here on Just Security.

We’ll likely have more to say on the OLC memo once we’ve had an opportunity to digest it, but in the meantime, be sure to catch Jameel Jaffer’s post from the weekend on the FOIA litigation that led to the memo’s release.
