Attorney General Eric Holder has released a letter that for the first time acknowledges that the U.S. killed an American with a drone strike, reports New York Times Charlie Savage.
Holder alleged in the letter that Awlaki “planned” the attempted bombing of a Detroit-bound airliner in 2009 and “played a key role” in a 2010 bomb plot. Beyond that “information remains classified to protect sensitive sources and methods,” according to Holder.
