    Extrajudicial killing

    An extrajudicial killing is the killing of a person by governmental authorities without the sanction of any judicial proceeding or legal process. Extrajudicial punishments are by their nature unlawful, since they bypass the due process of the legal jurisdiction in which they occur. Extrajudicial killings often target leading political, trade union, dissident, religious, and social figures and may be carried out by the state government or other state authorities like the armed forces and police."

      2001 AUMF is the law that authorized armed conflict against al Qaeda.  You might not like it but that's the existing law.

      Targeted killing of terrorists with which we have legally declared a state of armed conflict is not unlawful.  Not by US law, not by international law.
