Whistleblower Leaks Drone Program

Back in 2011, President Obama basically made the decision that using drones was NOT hostile and therefore allowed him to sidestep the War Powers Resolution. This created a lot of media spin but it quickly died down. Now, thanks to an anonymous whistleblower to The Intercept, it seems the details of the American drone program executed through the CIA and JSOC are laid completely bare. There is basically no wiggle room for the President to tap dance out of this one with the usual "I was not aware" routine as the documents definitely show him as the approval authority. It will be interesting to see how this leak pans out, especially in the wake of the Doctors Without Borders killing.
