Eric Holder Responds: Claims Military Can Assassinate U.S. Citizens on U.S. Soil

Last week, I highlighted the fact that Kentucky Senator Rand Paul had still not received an answer to his question of whether the U.S. government believes it has the authority to assassinate a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil.  Well we finally have an answer from Attorney General Eric Holder and it’s not good.  In a press release from Senator Paul we discover that:

Attorney General Holder stated in a letter to Sen. Paul dated March 4, 2013: “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.”

There you have it folks.  Any questions?

Full press release here.

In Liberty,
Mike

  3. In all fairness, Holder never stated that a drone strike would/could be used against US citizens in the USA. He simply stated he could imagine a scenario where lethal force could be used, and then illustrated with examples of FOREIGN attackers (Japanese and Al Queda).

    Again, in fairness, Holder NEVER ANSWERED the question…namely, does the administration believe it has the authority to use deadly force to assassinate US citizens in the USA.

    And he will never answer that question.

  4. ummm the federal precedent for this goes way back im not even shure why people needed to ask , WTF was the “civil war” after all if not the killing of us citizans by federal goobers? yes the southern states “seceded” BUT from the “unions” point of view they were “rebbelious” us states full of us citizans and they killed them by the train load.

    untill we as a society face what brother did unto brother way back then we will remain on the corse set by the criminals who coerced half the country in to accepting and activly taking part in the brutalization , rape and murder of the other half.

    LOL fat chance , if there were ever a serious examination of the ACTUAL causes of the civil war the “united states” would ciese to exist in fact the citizens of that unholy “union” would them selves lose there identity wich is all mixed up with and tied together by lincolin’s treachery and the lies told to deify him after he was killed.

    with out the “glory” of the “good war” to “free the slaves” all that is left is the guilt of having pited family against family brother against brother over the econimic problems of europ ……it ALL comes back to france , britton and the proto socialists who bankrupted them in the 1800s
