U.S. To Offer Rationale Behind Targeting Citizens Abroad

• By Abby Ohlheiser

The Obama administration on Monday is expected to provide the most detailed account to date of its legal rationale for killing U.S. citizens abroad, as it did last year when an airstrike targeted an alleged al-Qaida operative in Yemen.

Officials briefed Reuters and the Washington Post ahead of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder's afternoon speech at Northwestern pertaining to the government's so-called "targeted kill" program.
