According to press secretary Jay Carney, the Obama administration said on Mar. 7 that the United States "would not use drone strikes on U.S. citizens on U.S. soil."
The response came after Sen. Rand Paul's (R-Ky.) filibuster over the drone question. Attorney General Eric Holder has written to Paul informing him of the opinion.
"Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on U.S. soil?" the letter reads. "The answer to that is no."
