Brennan Confirmed for CIA

The Senate voted to confirm John Brennan as CIA Director, 63-34.

Meanwhile, Eric Holder wrote to Sen. Rand Paul, telling him that the President has no authority to use a drone to kill an American “not engaged in combat” on American soil.

The rationale for killing someone like American Anwar al-Awlaki by drone in Yemen was that he was an enemy combatant.  You can kill an enemy combatant anywhere, on U. S. soil or abroad.
