Holder Grilled About Targeting Americans With Drones (Video)


HolderThe Senate Judiciary Oversight Committee questioned U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder over the leaked White House memos stating that U.S. Citizens could be the targeted for execution by aerial drones.

 Utah’s Senator Mike Lee asked Holder if he thought that the Senate Oversight committee had and important oversight roll over the Department of Justice, and  if his office would be addressing the bipartisan request made to his office  by a group of U.S. Senators for a “legal definition or legal framework for decisions regarding the targeted killing of American citizens using drones.” Lee also asked Holder if he would be releasing any and all memoranda regarding the matter.

 Take close notice of Holder’s dismissive gesture upon answering the question. Holder’s response

 I do. I’ve heard the committee express the desire to see these memoranda,and I will, might be carefully, but I will bringing that to the attention of appropriate people within the administration, I am not unsympathetic to what you are saying.-Attorney General Eric Holder

 Lee continued pressing  him about releasing the requested memoranda, where Holder responded that  he would “will bring that desire and my view to those who are in a position to make those kinds of determinations. I’m only one of those people.”

 A concerned Lee then questions the integrity of the Obama administration’s definition of  the term ‘imminent threat’ regarding the reasoning for targeting U.S. Citizens, and the “feasibility” of ordering a drone attack order.
