A Defense Apartment document from the Obama Administration outlines the President's authority for attacks on American citizens. Directive 3025.18, "Defense Support of Civil Authorities," provides authorization for the commander in chief to order military strikes against civilians. These include, but are not limited to, the use of drones for surveillance.
The directive, buried in the public DoD database, was first brought to the attention of the public by the Washington Times.
It gives the President the power to order military forces to quell "large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances." The directive also extends the same authority to kill mass numbers of Americans to military commanders when "authorization by the president is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation."
