Where do we find people that can rise to such positions with apparently little knowledge of the U.S. Constitution?
For the sake of argument Holder’s meandering is correct, this is a top level terrorist responsible for killing.
Wouldn’t the proper thing be to close in on him immediately, take him alive and then let the CIA take him into international waters to squeeze him for all the information.

“I have to go back. Uh, I’m not certain whether that was addressed or not,” Mueller said when asked by Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., about a distinction between domestic and foreign targeting.
Graves followed up asking whether “from a historical perspective,” the federal government has “the ability to kill a U.S. citizen on United States soil or just overseas.”
“I’m going to defer.
Holder argued in his remarks that it is “simply not accurate” that the president must get permission from a federal court before taking action against a United States citizen terrorist. (Source)
“Due process and judicial process are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security.
The Constitution guarantees due process, not judicial process,” he said.
