Obama Oversees al-Qaeda 'Kill List'

 President Obama is personally overseeing a top-secret process for determining which Al-Qaeda suspects should be placed on a “kill list."
This “kill list” comes as part of a stepped-up fight against Al-Qaeda and
its affiliates in Pakistan and Yemen. “He is determined that he will make these decisions about how far and wide these operations will go,” National Security Adviser Thomas Donilon said. “His view is that he’s responsible for the position of the United States in the world... He’s determined to keep the tether pretty short.”

Nothing else in Mr. Obama’s first term has baffled liberal supporters and confounded conservative critics alike as his aggressive counterterrorism record. His actions have often remained inscrutable, obscured by awkward secrecy rules, polarized political commentary and the president’s own deep reserve.
