Barack Obama continues to run The Drone War, terrorizing millions around the world.  The Bureau of Investigative Journalism has started a project entitled Naming The Dead that seeks to put names to Barack's kills.

Equally important, the kills are being questioned legally.  Owen Bowcott (Guardian) reported Friday:

A United Nations investigation has so far identified 33 drone strikes around the world that have resulted in civilian casualties and may have violated international humanitarian law.
The report by the UN's special rapporteur on human rights and counter-terrorism, Ben Emmerson QC, calls on the US to declassify information about operations co-ordinated by the CIA and clarify its positon on the legality of unmanned aerial attacks.
