Great conversation going on over at Opinio Juris on targeted killings and the use of drones. The posts between Gabor Rona and Michael W. Lewis and associated comments by inter alia Kevin Jon Heller are a continuation of a extended conversation which took place on Lawfare between Kenneth Anderson, Geoffrey Corn, Gabor Rona, Charles Dunlap, Laurie Blank and Michael Lewis. The train of posts that follows the most recent article by Gabor Rona is particularly interesting for its discussion of when individuals associated with an armed group are targetable under international humanitarian law.
