'''Assassination''', or '''"targeted killing"''' as it is euphemistically called (especially when carried out by [[drones]]), has long been a key feature of [[deep politics]]. Many [[intelligence agencies]] have [[hit squad]]s, either public or covert, tasked with carrying out assassinations in such as a way as to either make the [[premature deaths]] appear accidental or at least to maintain their own [[plausible deniability]].

==Official Narrative==
"Assassination" is murder, and hence illegal, so is seldom if ever used by {{ccm}} to describe the policies of countries such as USA or UK. The head of [[MI6]] even ventured to say deny that the organisation had ever carried out assassinations. Until the case of [[Anwar al-Awlaki]], the US government too refused to publicly admit it had a policy of assassinations. When this admission was publicly made, the [[BBC]] did not use the word "assassination", choosing instead to headline their report "US approves killing US-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki".<ref name="BBCass">http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8606584.stm</ref>

Assassination is the extra-judicial killing of particular people, often indicative of deep politics at work. Illegal under most legal systems, the Western commercially controlled media has recently been introducing a euphemism for this: if carried out by "us" (Western democracies such as the USA) against "them" (demonized bogeymen), the preferred term is "targeted killing", the legality of which goes unquestioned.

Assassination, or "targeted killing" as it is euphemistically called (especially when carried out by drones), has long been a key feature of deep politics. Many intelligence agencies have hit squads, either public or covert, tasked with carrying out assassinations in such as a way as to either make the premature deaths appear accidental or at least to maintain their own plausible deniability.

Official Narrative

The head of MI6 once claimed that MI6 had never carried out assassinations. [Citation Needed] An essential part of all but the most urgent deep political assassinations in the cover story which is used either to hide the murder (i.e. as a suicide or a fatal accident) or to obscure the true motives and perpetrators. Official investigations regularly declare an assassinations to be the work of "lone nuts", while those who question the official narrative are termed "conspiracy theorists".

Where killings have been openly admitted by intelligence agencies or military groups, they are seldom if ever termed as "assassinations" or "murders" by the commercially-controlled media unless carried out by "enemy" nation states. Euphemisms such as "targeted killing" are de rigueur.

Targeted Killing

Until the case of Anwar al-Awlaki, the US government refused to publicly admit it carried out targeted killings. When this was publicly admitted, the BBC did not use the word "assassination", choosing instead to headline their report "US approves killing US-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki".[1]

Wikipedia reports that "Targeted killing is the intentional killing – by a government or its agents – of a civilian or 'unlawful combatant' targeted by the government". It gives prominence to the ideas of Georgetown Law Professor Gary Solis, who in his 2010 book entitled "The Law of Armed Conflict: International Humanitarian Law in War" wrote that "Assassinations and targeted killings are very different acts".[2] The phrase might have been designed to hide the true nature of the fact - many drone strikes are not of known individuals, but so - called "signature strikes", i.e. assassinations of unknown people based ont on their identity but on their behaviour, which is perceived (currently probably only by humans, but in the future quite possible by software) as suspicious.

Assassinations in Israel

Full article: Israel/Assassination

Israel has openly pursued a policy of "targeted killing" since the inception of the second intifada in September 2000, and has killed hundreds if not thousands since then.[3] This policy has broad support amongst the Israeli population.

Assassinations in US

US President Gerald Ford's Executive Order 11905 banned political assassinations, declaring that "No employee of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, political assassination."[4] Citing numerous examples, Mark Gorton states that "The criminal forces within the national security state have a long history killing many people for the purposes of hiding the death of one, key, high profile individual."[5] Section 2.11 of Executive Order 12333 (December 4, 1981) reiterated that "No person employed by or acting on behalf of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, assassination" - a prohibition that in 1998, the Washington Post admitted that the US government was tacitly ignoring.[6]

Post War On Terror Law Change

Full article: Rated 4/5 “War On Terror”

Three days after 9/11, the US congress gave "Authorization for Use of Military Force" (AUMF) to the US president[7]. This vague legal statue has been stretched to legalize assassination of al-Qaeda purported leaders.[8] People on the target list are considered military enemies of the U.S., and therefore not subject to ealier legislation. The US has not signed the International Convention against Forced Disappearance. The US government consistently refuses to directly address the legality of military drones. In May 2013 Barack Obama referenced a presidential policy guidance on the matter, but only a 2 page summary has been released - the text itself remains classified.[7]

The CIA's Operation 40 is a hit squad originally organised out of Miami station, constituted mainly of Cubans with aim of assassinating Fidel Castro. The group reportedly carried out multiple assassinations. Daniel Hopsicker and Mark Gorton have claimed that many members of the group were involved in the JFK Assassination.[5][9]

The memo which Jason Leopold discovered that lead to the partial exposure of the Dallas occupy plot

US District Judge Rosemary M. Collyer ordered the FBI to explain why it isn't cooperating with an investigation into the assassination plot. The US Justice Department has declined to comment on the matter.[10][11]

"Lone nut"“Nor, for example, is there any reason to interpret the 'lone assassin' verdict, which emerged immediately after the assassination as itself an indicator of the conspiracy at work. On the perspective I am suggesting, almost before Kennedy's heart stopped beating the one thing which everyone involved would have agreed upon, without discussion, never mind coercion, was that a 'lone nut' verdict had to emerge. The 'truth' was not an issue: in politics the 'truth' is simply a tool.<a href="#cite_note-7">[7]</a> The point about the 'lone nut' is that it was then, and remains (cf Hinckley) the only safe explanation for political assassination within America. 'Disney America'<a href="#cite_note-8">[8]</a>, the fantasy pluralist democracy described in the textbooks on the American political system, cannot accommodate planned political assassination.<a href="#cite_note-9">[9]</a>Robin Ramsay1983
Meir Dagan“In my opinion, no terrorist should feel immune, anywhere. I think that a person's life is forfeit the moment he decides to adopt terrorist tactics.”Meir Dagan1998
