Alex Little Weighs in on Drone Memo that Justifies Killing of American Islamic Militant

Bone McAllester Norton attorney Alex Little appeared on FOX News yesterday in a story on the release of a memo formally acknowledging the CIA’s role in a drone program that resulted in the 2011 killing of an American Islamic militant. Talking to anchor Shepard Smith, Alex commented on how the U.S. government justified the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki without due process of law. “They justify it predominately under the theory that he’s an enemy, we’re at war, and we can kill enemies at war. That’s the base motivation that’s going on behind this memo.” They discussed possible concerns over a government making exceptions to the legal course in the future, based on this occurrence.

FOX News Interviews Alex Little about Thieves Using Credit Card Skimmers to Steal Information

Thieves are placing the devices into computer ports on cash registers, which scan every detail being done on that port, including processing credit cards.

“Most likely, they’re not gonna use that themselves. They are going to sell that credit card number on the Internet to somebody else,” he told Smith. “You really have an obligation at the end of every month to check your bill very closely.”
