US government admits to killing four American citizens with drones


United States Attorney General Eric Holder has told Congress that four American citizens have been killed in Yemen and Pakistan by US drones since 2009.

It has been widely reported but rarely acknowledged in
Washington that three US citizens – Samir Khan, Anwar al-Awlaki and
his teenage son – were executed in a September 2011 strike in
Yemen. With Holder’s latest admission, however, a fourth American –
Jude Mohammed–has also been named a casualty of America’s
continuing drone war.
