I am curious if the United States had ever overtly killed somebody in a foreign country due to refusal of extradition prior to the George W. Bush administration. Any legal, history students with an answer? I have done a brief search and I have not found an answer. I believe it was a policy change
Post 9/11.

I think Biden deserves some credit for the decision. He obviously won’t win any points from the progressive left with the decision to strike and he won’t be allowed to get any points from hypocritical right-wingers.

We are the world’s police for better or worse. We made the situation in Afganistan, or at the very least, significantly contributed. It think it was the right call, and de facto our duty, to help ward off a growth of a terrorist-network in Afghanistan and wound them with the drone strike.

The only thing he ever did that I will acknowledge in a somewhat positive way is stating that when we leave Afghanistan we will still have some measure of intelligence sources on the ground, local or otherwise. I thought that was true then and still believe it. However, I certainly don’t give him credit for basically saying
“yes” to an operation 95% of the population (adolescents included) would also agree to. I give much more credit to the intelligence community underlings, including locals and various covert ops personnel.
