“Attorney General Eric Holder has confirmed in writing that the president can kill U.S. citizens in a drone strike on U.S. soil, in “an extraordinary circumstance.”…………March 5, 2013”
Before John Brennan’s confirmation hearings, he was slightly more guarded in his reaction to the general use of lethally equipped drones. One has to wonder what his personal opinion is on the use of lethal drones within our own borders. Will he merely parrot the words of Eric Holder, or will he have some profound statement of his own. "For many people -- in our government and across the country -- the issue of targeted strikes raised profound moral questions," he said. "It forces us to confront deeply held personal beliefs and our values as a nation."
"If anyone in government who works in this area tells you they haven’t struggled with this, then they haven’t spent much time thinking about it," Brennan said. "I know I have, and I will continue to struggle with it as long as I remain involved in counterterrorism."…….John Brennan in a speech on 4/30/2012
