Obama Administration Says President Can Use Lethal Force Against Americans on US Soil

Yes, the president does have the authority to use military force against American citizens on US soil—but only in “an extraordinary circumstance,” Attorney General Eric Holder said in a letter to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Tuesday.

“The US Attorney General’s refusal to rule out the possibility of drone strikes on American citizens and on American soil is more than frightening,” Paul said Tuesday. “It is an affront the constitutional due process rights of all Americans.”

Last month, Paul threatened to filibuster the nomination of John Brennan, Obama’s pick to head the CIA, “until he answers the question of whether or not the president can kill American citizens through the drone strike program on US soil.” Tuesday, Brennan told Paul that “the agency I have been nominated to lead does not conduct lethal operations inside the United States—nor does it have any authority to do so.” Brennan said that the Justice Department would answer Paul’s question about whether Americans could be targeted for lethal strikes on US soil.

Holder’s answer was more detailed, however, stating that under certain circumstances, the president would have the authority to order lethal attacks on American citizens. The two possible examples of such “extraordinary” circumstances were the attack on Pearl Harbor and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. An American president ordering the use of lethal military force inside the United States is “entirely hypothetical, unlikely to occur, and one we hope no president will ever have to confront,” Holder wrote. Here’s the bulk of the letter:

As members of this administration have previously indicated, the US government has not carried out drone strikes in the United States and has no intention of doing so. As a policy matter moreover, we reject the use of military force where well-established law enforcement authorities in this country provide the best means for incapacitating a terrorist threat. We have a long history of using the criminal justice system to incapacitate individuals located in our country who pose a threat to the United States and its interests abroad. Hundreds of individuals have been arrested and convicted of terrorism-related offenses in our federal courts.

The question you have posed is therefore entirely hypothetical, unlikely to occur, and one we hope no president will ever have to confront. It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States. For example, the president could conceivably have no choice but to authorize the military to use such force if necessary to protect the homeland in the circumstances like a catastrophic attack like the ones suffered on December 7, 1941, and September 11, 2001.

The letter concludes, “were such an emergency to arise, I would examine the particular facts and circumstances before advising the president of the scope of his authority.”

In a Google+ Hangout last month, President Obama refused to say directly if he had the authority to use lethal force against US citizens. As Mother Jones reported at the time, the reason the president was being so coy is that the answer was likely yes. Now we know that’s exactly what was happening. “Any use of drone strikes or other premeditated lethal force inside the United States would raise grave legal and ethical concerns,” says Raha Wala, an attorney with Human Rights First. “There should be equal concern about using force overseas.”

This post has been edited to include Paul’s statement and the final line of Holder’s letter.

“Egypt is descending into chaos,” Paul chief of staff Doug Stafford told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We should not be arming them with advanced weapons”

Rand Paul: No fighter jets, tanks for Egypt

Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul sought Thursday to block the transfer of F-16 fighter jets and Abrams tanks to Egypt.

“I think it particularly unwise to send tanks and our most sophisticated fighter planes to Egypt at a time when many are saying the country may be unraveling,” Paul said on the Senate floor.

Lockheed Martin shipped 20 F-16s to Egypt last year while General Dynamics signed a contract to deliver parts for 125 Abrams M1A1 tanks to be manufactured in Egypt the year before, the New York Times reported.

U.S. aid to Egypt has been controversial since the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak and the ascendancy of the Muslim Brotherhood under new President Mohamed Morsi. But the Obama administration resumed the aid to reward the country’s democratic progress.

The senator has previously attempted to suspend all American foreign aid to Egypt.

“I think this is particularly unwise since Egypt is currently governed by a religious zealot, a religious zealot who said recently that ‘Jews were bloodsuckers and descendants of apes and pigs,’” Paul continued. “This doesn’t sound like the kind of stable personality we would be sending our most sophisticated weapons to.”

Paul also expressed concern “that these weapons threaten Israel’s security” and promote a regional arms race. The senator recently returned from a high-profile trip to Israel during which he repeatedly expressed his commitment to a strong alliance with the Jewish state.

“Egypt is descending into chaos,” Paul chief of staff Doug Stafford told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We should not be arming them with advanced weapons. It is not in our interest, it is not in the interest of the Egyptian people and it is not in the interest of Israel.”

“We don’t know who will control those weapons and we don’t know who they might be used on in the future,” Stafford added.

Paul’s measure is a proposed amendment to the bill extending the debt limit until May, which the Senate is expected to vote on Thursday.

Update: Paul’s amendment was defeated by a Senate vote of 79 to 19.
