Judge Throws Out Challenge to Extrajudicial Killings of Americans

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

A US federal judge on Friday dismissed a lawsuit challenging the Obama administration's killing of three Americans in drone strokes, a decision slammed as "a true travesty of justice for our constitutional democracy."

The case was brought by the ACLU and the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) on behalf of family members of the victims killed in 2011 in Yemen: Anwar Al-Aulaqi, his 16-year-old son Abdulrahman, and Samir Khan.
