This administration has a way with words that tries to keep everything neutral so that it doesn't come back to bite Obama in the *ss. That is true, but if you actually listen to what Holder said, he has already answered your question. The reason Holder hasn't answered the question, "Does the President have the right to target US Citizens on American soil?" with a simple answer like NO. is because this administration believes that there are home grown domestic terrorists here in the US. Obama has warned us about this since 2008. If he answered no, to that question, then he couldn't target those terrorists with drones.

How do you get due process when you are getting shot out of the sky? Just wondering..
the president has the authority to use military force to stop an attack against this country, such as when planes are destroying the Pentagon.
drone, or manned fighter jet makes little difference at that point
The issue is using drones to carry out kills on Americans like we have done over seas.
How else to raise the issue and public awareness of it? Propose a bill that the military and White House get killed in committee?
Rand Paul just put himself to the clear libertarian and Republican-right forefront, and on an issue that many "liberals" agree with.
His overall pitch is that while people can disagree on economics completely, people should be unified on fundamental basic rights as citizens - and that such rights should be the foremost issues to people even over economic issues.
