Obama admin refuses to rule out drone strikes on US soil

Obama admin refuses to rule out drone strikes on US soil --Sen. Paul branded Holder's refusal to comprehensively rule out drone strikes on US soil 'more than frightening.' 05 Mar 2013 American forces could launch a deadly drone strike against a target on US soil if there was an "extraordinary circumstance," Attorney General Eric Holder said in a letter seen Tuesday. The nation's top Justice Department official, in a letter to Republican Senator Rand Paul, who released it, stressed that US military and intelligence agencies currently have "no intention" of carrying out such an attack. "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," Holder wrote.
