A Thin Rationale for Drone Killings (NYT):

The Obama administration on Monday reluctantly released its justification for killing an American citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki, whom it considered a terrorist, in a 2011 drone strike in Yemen. But the rationale provides little confidence that the lethal action was taken with real care. (…)

Instead, the memo turns out to be a slapdash pastiche of legal theories — some based on obscure interpretations of British and Israeli law — that was clearly tailored to the desired result. (…)

There’s no explanation given in the memo for how the United States knew Mr. Awlaki was planning “imminent” mayhem, as the memo claims. (…)

Oh, let’s not forget that a) Anwar al-Awlaki’s 16 year old son and a US citizen as well, was killed in a drone strike a few days later too and that b) Obama received the nobel prize for peace.

Branding like KISS

12916031_d1d4600d4a_o What Rock Stars In High Heels Have To Do With The Future Of Your Brand – A Lesson From The KISS School Of Business (Forbes):

And if your brand’s identity can stand on its own, no one will ever be able to beat you at it. There’s never going to be a band that can say, “We’re more like Kiss than Kiss is!” They might be louder, faster, flashier, younger, sexier, etc., but it doesn’t matter—they’ll never beat Kiss at being themselves.
