Holder: No Drone Strikes in U.S.

Alarmed by the prospect of drone strikes in the U.S.? Not to fear, says the White House. In a letter obtained by NBC News, Attorney General Eric Holder called the entire notion of drone strikes inside the U.S. “entirely hypothetical” and “unlikely to occur.” He said that the only occasion that such a measure will be taken is in response to “an extraordinary circumstance,” such as the Sept. 11 attack or the bombing of Pearl Harbor. In response, Sen. Rand Paul called Holder’s refusal to rule out stateside drone strikes “more than frightening.”
