The best known example would be Hirohima/Nagasaki, and the moral justification for their atomic bombing is lacking
Perhaps. But at least in that case, the attacks were openly carried out by the military, with authorization from the President. The chain of command was followed. It wasn't a clandestine operation done by a secret organization answerable to no one. Unlike, of course, Section 31.
Irrelevant.
Such acts are not inherently more moral just because they have the blessing of some president (or anyone else, for that matter).

But the president at least has to deal with any potential consequences of it. Who the hell deals with the consequences in Section 31's case? What's to stop them from abusing their power? Becuase all I'm getting is unprovable crap about how they would never ever do that for some reason or other.
