Lawfare on my Targeting and Collateral Damage Article
Ben Wittes, writing at Lawfare was kind enough to pen a write-up on my empirical paper The U.S. Practice of Collateral Damage Estimation and Mitigation. I consider this a high honor. Here is Ben’s take:
Whatever your view of the merits of targeted killing, this article, in my view at least, will enrich your understanding of the way targeting is done. It should be required reading for anyone participating in the many debates surrounding targeted killing. While it deals only with the military, not the CIA, and only with strikes that are reviewed in advance–and thus does not present a complete picture of U.S. targeting practices–it does give a rich sense of the methodological care and seriousness with which the military approaches the problem of collateral damage.
