White House Releases Drone ‘Playbook’

A redacted version of the White House’s police guidelines for drone strikes has been released after a lawsuit by the ACLU. Known as “the Playbook,” the Presidential Policy Guidance was issued in May 2013 by President Obama to create more control for the drone program. New details in the document include the process for nominating somebody to be targeted and how the aftermath of a strike is reported.
