Holder's Letter to Rand Paul: 'No,' the U.S. Can't Use Drone to Kill Citizen Not Engaged in Combat on U.S. Soil

From: The Weekly Standard

Eric Holder responds to Rand Paul's filibuster with this letter:
Dear Senator Paul:
It has come to my attention that you have now asked an additional question: "Does the President have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil?" The answer to that question is no.
Eric Holder
Here's an image of that letter:

UPDATE: Apparently, the White House and Justice Department failed to send the letter to the person who asked the question--Rand Paul.
