Obama says kill?

After years of decrying Bush's policy of interrogating terrorists, Pres. Obama has promised to end "torture" and close gitmo. That means that there is little value in capturing top Al Qaeda operatives. So, according to the Washington Post, the decision appears to have been made to kill them instead. We won't get any useful intelligence from them that way but the advantage is that no one will be able to accuse Obama of torturing them.

UPDATE: Ed Morrissey has more.
