Assassination and the Law of Armed Conflict
JUDGE ADVOCATE GENERAL'S SCHOOL CHARLOTTESVILE VA
Pagination or Media Count:
This thesis examines the development of the customary prohibition of assassination during time of war and concludes that there is no longer any convincing justification for retaining a unique rule of international law that treats assassination apart from other uses of force. It then examines assassination as a domestic political issue and concludes that it is better addressed in the context of the use of force generally by the United States against foreign nations.
