Holder: Yep, Obama Could Kill Americans On U.S. Soil

Link to article

"...It is possible, I suppose to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States." - Eric Holder

UPDATE: After Senator Paul's filibuster, Eric Holder changed his mind:

“Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on U.S. soil?  The answer to that is no.”
