Obama officials weigh drone attack on US suspect

The CIA drones watching him cannot strike because he’s a U.S. citizen. The Pentagon drones that could are barred from the country where he’s hiding, and the Justice Department has not yet finished building a case against him.

Four U.S. officials said the American suspected terrorist is in a country that refuses U.S. military action on its soil and that has proved unable to go after him. And Obama’s new policy says American suspected terrorists overseas can only be killed by the military, not the CIA, creating a policy conundrum for the White House.

Policy conundrum? Policy conundrum?!?

I think the words you meant were… CONSTITUTIONAL CONUNDRUM.

Because, the answer to this where any American Citizen is concerned is and should always be, not without the due process of a fair, public, jury trial.
