At Chicago Speech, Holder Will Detail Rationale for Assassinating Americans Without Charge

The explanation has long been speculated at by legal experts and civil rights activists, as the Obama Administration is known to have a “kill list” and has assassinated multiple American citizens inside Yemen without providing any charges against them beforehand.
Exactly what the explanation will be, however, will remain a secret for now, as officials who confirmed the planned speech refused to provide any details of what he would say, beyond some vague appeal to “self defense” by the state, until after the speech is made.

Administration officials have rarely discussed their assassinations publicly, though Pentagon General Council Jeh Johnson did argue last month that there was no court in existence that could challenge the assassinations once the president decided to kill them.
