Did Rand Paul Just Get The ‘No’ He Was Looking For?

March 7, 2013 by  

Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has received the answer to his question of whether or not the President has the authority to kill U.S. citizens on U.S. soil with drone strikes.

Thursday U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder sent Paul another letter clarifying the Administration’s position on drone strikes on U.S. soil.

Read the letter below:


White House Press Secretary Jay Carney read directly from the letter that Holder sent, as he sought to further clarify the Administration position.

“The President has not and would not use drone strikes against American citizens on US soil” if they are not engaged in hostile activity, Carney said.

“Does the President have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil? The answer is no,” Carney continued.
