Abdulrahman Al-Aulaqi was the innocent victim of an out-of-control CIA and Pentagon “targeted killing” program. This shadowy program started by targeting those on secret “kill lists.” Then, it was expanded to target those who fit a specific “pattern of behavior” — even if their identities were unknown.
