This chapter focuses on the morality of targeted killing (TK). Section II, against most common wisdom in the field, suggests that the notion of TK should be released from its association with the war (or wars) against terror. Section III presents three interpretations of just war theory that will serve as the basis for the moral analysis of TK. Section IV turns to this analysis and shows how each of the three interpretations supports the practice of TK.
