Judge Andrew Napolitano weighed in on "The O'Reilly Factor" last night on the legality of killing traitors to America. The discussion focused on the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, an al Qaeda operative and U.S. citizen who was killed in a CIA drone strike in Yemen in 2011.
The Associated Press is reporting that Yemen claims it has foiled an Al Qaeda plot to take over key cities in the country and blow up gas facilities.
The United States government acknowledged for the first time that four American citizens have been killed in drone strikes since 2009. In a letter to Congress, Attorney General Eric Holder refers to the strikes as “sensitive counter-terrorism operations,” but does not used the word “drone.”
