    i'm sure that the doc was leaked for a reason.  my guess is that it was leaked in order to relieve congressional pressure for the release of the "real" documents, i.e., the actual full legal rationale for the drone program.

    i think that a lot of folks are focusing on the constitutionality of killing americans without due process because people instinctively feel that that is the greatest weakness and clearest evidence that the administration's rationale is utterly without merit.  i think that "double taps" and "signature strikes" and the like are also far beyond the pale, but those are largely violations of international law and the laws of war, which will undoubtedly be adjudicated elsewhere.
