is won­der­ing if the death-by-drone at­tack of Sally Jones is legally jus­ti­fied. The woman known as the White Widow was an Isis mem­ber who, it is be­lieved, was killed by a Preda­tor mis­sile drone strike in Syria. A for­mer punk rocker from Kent, she helped to re­cruit hun­dreds of women to fight ji­had. It is im­pos­si­ble to say how many deaths Jones caused, or the depth of the wretched­ness she wreaked on the world. Last year, she is­sued a se­ries of spe­cific ter­ror­ist threats, in­clud­ing call­ing on Mus­lim women to launch ter­ror­ist at­tacks in Lon­don, Glas­gow and Wales dur­ing Ra­madan. If she is dead, then I am glad of it. Legally or oth­er­wise. She didn’t care about the le­gal rights of all the in­no­cents who died be­cause of her ac­tions, so why should we care about hers?
