In Legitimate target, a criteria-based approach to targeted killing, Amos Guiora proposes that targeted killing decisions must reflect consideration of four distinct elements : law, policy, morality, and operational details, thus ensuring that it complies with principles of domestic international laws. The author, writing from personal experience and an academic perspective, offers important criticism and insight into the policy as presently implemented, highlighting the need for a criteria-based decision making process in defining and identifying a legitimate target. Legitimate target, a criteria-based approach to targeted killing blends concrete examples with a nuanced study of the current targeted killing paradigm with an emphasis on the dilemmas of morality and the law.
