President Barack Obama will soon reveal more about the administration's legal rationale for using drone strikes, Attorney General Eric Holder said on Wednesday.
Holder told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee that Obama would address the issue directly "in a relatively short period of time."
Congress has been seeking access to at least 11 memos produced by the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel that lay out the legal rationale for using drone strikes to target individuals overseas, but until this week had only been allowed access to four of them.
"I heard you. The president has heard," Holder said. As a result, the administration is prepared to make more materials available, he said.
House Judiciary Committee - Republicans and Democrats alike - expressed concern on Wednesday about U.S. drone strikes against American citizens and President Barack Obama's secrecy in laying out the legal justifications. Today 455 American's have died by drone strikes on foriegn soil. Obama stated " I will not use drones to kill American's". 'Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil?,'" Carney read aloud. "The answer to that question is no." clearly a lie since he has killed American's on foriegn soil like they were sheep cause on foriegn soil there is no laws against killing an American in Muslim countries like Afganistan and Yemen. His official birth certificate shows he is not an American. Oswald Killed Kennedy over Vietnam Lincoln was killed for freeing the slaves. It is a matter of time before justice prevales.
