Summary:

Scahill takes us inside America's new covert wars. As he reveals, the foot soldiers in these battles operate daily across the globe and inside the United States with orders from the White House to do whatever is necessary to hunt down, capture, or kill individuals designated by the president as enemies of America. These activities are conducted outside the range of the press and without effective congressional oversight or public debate.
