Not too long ago the LAPD had seen Christopher Dorner as one of their own. Now, they are labeling him as a “domestic terrorist” and “cop killer.” Dorner is a former Naval Reserve lieutenant and part of the Mobile Inshore Undersea Warfare Unit, where he mastered mobile radar and sonar. These techniques have been used for such missions as Operation Desert Storm/Sheild. Because Dorner is so skilled this makes the recent events more risky and critical in the hunt to find him. I use the word hunt because the LAPD has decided to use drones to locate Mr. Droner.
A formerly undisclosed Justice Department memo was leaked to NBC News. This document, titled Lawfulness of a Lethal Operation Directed Against a U.S. Citizen who is a Senior Operational Leader of Al Qa’ida or An Associated Force, outlines the Obama Administration’s legal basis for the targeted assassination of American citizens. The memo was leaked just before John Brennan goes before the Senate for his confirmation hearings as the new CIA Director.
