Summary
It's the dirty little secret of the War on Terror: all bets are off, and almost anything goes. The rules of the game and of engagement have fundamentally changed. Today drone strikes, night raids, and U.S. government targeted killings occur in corners across the globe, killing untold numbers of civilians. Investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill traces the rise of the Joint Special Operations Command, the most secret fighting force in U.S. history, exposing operations carried out by men who do not exist on paper and will never appear before Congress. No target is off-limits for the JSOC "kill list," not even U.S. citizens
Summary
A sobering expose of secret war programs currently being conducted behind the scenes of the War on Terror, drawing on interviews with CIA agents, mercenaries and other operators to reveal the human consequences of night raids, drone strikes and other unofficial "dirty-war" tactics
