Submission + - US Military Requests 'National Manhunting Agency' (wired.com) 2

Philip K Dickhead writes: "The US Military Joint Operations University says that a "National Manhunting Agency” is needed to go after jihadists, drug dealers, pirates and other "enemies of the state". Revelations of a CIA program for extrajudicial executions and assassination are criticized for not going far enough in the military's position. "Such a group wouldn’t just go after terrorists. “Human networks are behind narcotics trafficking, arms proliferation, piracy, hiding war criminals from authorities, human trafficking, or other smuggling activities,” Crawford writes. “Human networks also lie at the core of national governments, offering an increased potential to nonlethally influence state actors with precision. A robust manhunting capability would allow the United States to interdict these human networks.”"
Given the military and law enforcements history of mission-creep, are "hackers" Gary McKinnon about to show up on a hit-list?"
