The CIA’s drone program, which is expanding globally, explicitly targeting and killing large swathes of people without knowing who they are. Murder, solely on “suspicion” is the rule rather than the exception. Many times, like in the tribal areas of Pakistan, the US will knowingly target large groups of people. If they plan on killing 20 or more people, they need to get permission from the Pakistani government.
