    Like I said, you do admit that the title of your OP was inaccurate

    And like I said, the title was not by me. I explained this earlier. Please try to keep up.

    However, as I originally stated, the title is not supported by the content of your OP (or the content of the article). The article shows that Holder said we could kill americans with drones in the US

    Original posts do not have titles, thus you must either be a fool, a liar, or referring to the title of the article.

    I must say that while this comes as a surprise, the words "can't" and "won't" are two different things. In addition to this, it states clearly "on American soil" so Obama can still kill you if you leave the country.
    I'm totally cool with us killing people deemed a threat who are outside of the country, even Americans. It's not like those people don't have a right to come home and face trial. If someone on the public enemy list is hiding in Yemen, I'd be pissed if we didn't send a drone strike.

    What is the problem, i mean aside from the false idea that the US government behaves the same on foreign soil? It is not a surprise considering it is not our land. So yes, if you run off to some terrorist training grounds in a foreign country you might just find yourself whacked by a US drone without a trial. Especially if you are in some place considered a foreign warzone by the US government. really, do you expect the US military to cease it's drone strikes if an american citizen happens to be present voluntarily supporting those who we are at war with? That seems a little absurd to me. I would also happen to think that if obama and holder were not the ones talking about this you might consider a person who leaves america to join a fight against it's military in a foreign war as an enemy combatant and getting what they deserve. You are claiming that it makes you very nervous that the US would use a drone to kill a person who is technically a US citizen while they are fighting against them in a place like afganistan.

    No no, don't let me stop you from running with that. It is wrong in your mind for obama and the US military to act against a US citizen who has joined opposing forces in a war according to you. i am perfectly fine with them using a drone strike to kill that sort of person in a war, but if you think our military should endanger itself and its safety in a warzone I welcome you to your opinion.

    I can see a time when the use of a drone on a US citizen at home might be the prudent thing to do----say they had a nuclear bomb they were threatening to detonate or something extreme like that.
    If the person is sophisticated enough to have a nuclear device then chances are a they are sophisticated enough to make a drone strike pointless. There are very few reasons that a drone strike would be nessary. To be honest what those would would be I cant think of off the top of my head.
