Holder To Lay Out Legal Framework For 'Targeted Killing'

As the Associated Press notes, Holder's speech comes five months after the targeted killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen. That killing was reportedly authorized by a secret Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) memo that the administration has thus far refused to make public. The New York Times has a lawsuit pending to gain access to the memo.
