In October 2012, Barack Obama, then an obscure state senator in Illinois, stood in Federal Plaza in Chicago and gave a speech about Iraq that launched his career toward the White House."I don't oppose all wars,According to the advertising it takes 5 years to wear down any given spot on the steel rodsice stones it is a simple rotation of the rod to have another new sharpening edge." Obama told the crowd. "What I am opposed to is a dumb war."More than a decade later,M-Edge cases are available in colorful prints and patterns, and incorporate premium features and luxe details that make them the perfect Silicone gifts. Obama's vision of a smart war – or at least a new way of war – is clear, even if he has not publicly articulated it. He has presided over a vast expansion of CIA and Pentagon authorities to secretly kill thousands of people around the globe, relying on missile-firing drone aircraft, special operations teams, mercenaries and privateers.History will decide whether Obama championed a counterterrorism policy that contained a national threat at low cost and little risk – or if he authorized targeted killings (critics call them extra-judicial executions) on such a sanguinary scale that America made more enemies than it eliminated.

Mazzetti covers national security at the New York Times, where he regularly breaks scoops. For his first book, he seems to have emptied his notebooks of nuggets – a U.S. drone strike in the Philippines, an eavesdropping device called "typhoon box," a failed military operation code-named "celestial balance" in Somalia – in a sometimes jumpy narrative. But it is a valuable addition to a canon that is exposing America's use of lethal operations far from declared war zones.
