This chapter looks at the particular problems associated with studying targeted killings by the UK. It argues that there are a number of issues found in the literature on targeted killings and leadership decapitation that are likely to inhibit the study of UK targeted killings, notably the difficulty of disaggregating UK strikes from the Coalition air war against ISIS. It highlights the possibility of studying targeted killings as a form of cauterization of terrorist networks, but the true value of the UK case study is likely to lie in the study of the proliferation of capabilities to perform extraterritorial counter-terrorism strikes.
