A May 29, 2012 New York Times article by Jo Becker and Scott Shane revealed that the Obama administration hosts weekly meetings called "Terror Tuesdays," where about 100 government officials, including Obama 2012 campaign manager David Axelrod, decide who to target in its death by drone campaign. 

Glenn Greenwald spoke with Amy Goodman about the program, calling the President's policies "extremist and radical." The Salon.com columnist and outspoken administration critic has already written extensively on the "kill lists"; read his columns at the links below.

"How extremism is normalized; the Obama administration has converted once unthinkable government claims into permanent political fixtures" 

"Obama the Warrior; a new NYT article sheds considerable light on the character of the Democratic Commander in Chief"

"'Militants': media propaganda; To avoid counting civilian deaths, Obama re-defined "militant" to mean "all military-age males in a strike zone""
