Disposition Matrix

For the 2011 British horror film, see Kill List. The Disposition Matrix is a database that United States officials describe as a "next-generation capture/kill list".[1] Developed by the Obama Administration beginning in 2010, the "Disposition Matrix" goes beyond existing kill lists, and creates a blueprint for tracking, capturing, rendering, or killing suspected enemies of the US government. It is intended to become a permanent fixture of American policy.[1] The process determining criteria for killing is not public, but has been heavily shaped by presidential counterterrorism adviser and CIA director John Brennan.[2] Though White House, National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) spokesmen have declined to comment on the database, officials have stated privately that kill lists will expand "for at least another decade", if not indefinitely.
