The answer to that question is no, finally says Eric Holder.

It took a thirteen hour filibuster and turning up the heat to get the administration to publicly say the President does not have authority to ues drones to kill Americans not engaged in combat on American soil. Here is the letter Eric Holder wrote today:

The Attorney General
Washington, D.C.

The Honorable Rand Paul United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510
