The High Court has rejected an attempt by a Pakistani man to force the UK government to reveal if it is providing intelligence for US drone strikes.
Lord Justice Moses said that oversight of intelligence arrangements in this case was for Parliament, not the court.

Thats the thing, now, in a world where one does not declare war on nations, but on organisations, an intelligence service, and the government to whom it answers, can regard such behavior as legal, if morally objectionable. So, although there are some fairly profound violations of morality and ethics, there are no legal violations to answer for, because the intelligence efforts which lead to this drone strikes are aimed at the War On Terror, rather than a war against the people of any particular nation.
