I guess transparency is like brewing a pot of tea. It takes time.
The first formal acknowledgement that the U.S. ordered the killing of an American in a drone strike came today when the teapot boiled over.
Attorney General Eric Holder revealed in a letter to Congressional leaders that four Americans were killed in drone attacks, including Anwar al-Awlaki.
The 2011 death of al-Awlaki, a radical Muslim imam, was widely reported by the media as the responsibility of the U.S., but this is the first time that the administration formally acknowledged
that he was deliberately killed.
The other three Americans “were not specifically targeted,” Holder said.
Should our government target and kill Americans who are terrorists?
You bet your John Wayne collection of DVDs that it should!
