The Bipartisan Policy Center's (BPC) Homeland Security Project hosted a discussion convening legal and policy experts on the rule of law and war to discuss the use of drones and targeted killings. Panelists evaluated issues like the current frameworks regarding the use of drones, the ramifications of a "drone court," the targeting of U.S. citizens abroad, and whether Congress should examine what these policies mean for the country.
