This is exactly how the infamous torture memo came into existence during the Bush administration, a secret OLC opinion, the legal reasoning of which was so flimsy that it could not survive the light of day. So not only are we not supposed to question the murder of people in multiple countries, we are not even allowed to question the legal basis for it. It is sheer lunacy that LEGAL arguments need to be classified.
This is not a partisan issue. This is totally unacceptable regardless of who is the chief executive. And in particular, it is totally unacceptable for king "whatever his name happens to be this election cycle" to play judge, jury and executioner without the proper constitutional checks of congress and the courts.
The judge who refused to order the release of the legal opinion complained that the denial language of the FOIA statute was so vague and ambiguous it could authorize virtually anything. Apparently that is precisely the problem with the secret legal opinion itself, and it is intolerable. The legal opinion must be released to the PUBLIC, not it some back room for selected members of Congress only, and if it cannot be defended the drone killings must stop.
