I for one think it would be fun if they responded, "what about zombies?"

"Like those people who dug up Operation Fast and Furious just to embarrass the administration."

Really, your going to bring up this again? The program spanned two Administrations. Operation Fast and Furious was part II of a horrible idea that both sides share fault. But why let the truth get in the way of a partisan attack. This kind of crap is the exact reason why congress can't work together.

Hurray! CNN is getting into the Fox News/MSNBC sensational news game. Say goodbye to the Standards of Journalism and hello to ratings.

Eric Holder had to pinned to the floor to finally admit that if a citizen posed no imminent danger then "NO, use of a drone attack would not be appropriate".

Sorry if I find it unnerving that the AG of the country can't just answer a simple question about the constitutionality of a certain act.

@CaptKangaroo: You expressed my thoughts perfectly. Thanks.

In a saner world, the executive branch and the AG would have stated the targeting of U.S. citizens on U.S. soil for remote-controlled assassination without trial is not, and never will be, on the table for consideration--if nothing else, as a gesture of respect to the U.S. constitution and the rule of law.

@Gerry1of1 - My thoughts exactly.

I had this conversation with a few people last night. The way the story is presented, once again, is the media attempting to create mass hysteria & paranoia like they've been doing with all this misleading "assault weapon" talk.

All he's saying is that if a situation arose where a UAV could be used to prevent an attack carried out by an American on American soil it could be used.

So, this point get's conceded, then the debate to clarify who qualifies to be targeted, how they qualify, who makes the determination, who gets to administer the program, who gets to give the fire order- you know congress isn't going to let any president have all the fun.
To go with all this, new laws will be debated and legislated to force citizen's to accept, comply and conform to the new laws regarding these new losses of liberties and rights.
Our government- like any other- has this belief that they rule, instead of govern, and any challenge- no matter how peaceful- to this disbelief is met with violence. If that violence is returned, one is- at best- branded a criminal, at worst- and far more common these days- a terrorist.
McCarthy- our little Hitler who never was- would have eaten this stuff up.

So? This was a "what if" scenario by the president's parties opposition. Clearly just some new digging to embarrass the administration to help insure a Republican victory in 2016. Or to just stall yet another nominee of Obamas. The Atty General just took the safe road and "never say never".

Nothing to see. Move along.

Link: Atty Gen. Won't Rule Out U.S. Drone Strikes [Pic+] [Rate Link] - Says "it's possible" that U.S. citizens will be killed on U.S. soil by drones without a trial. Concerned yet?
