Report: Drone strikes on Americans "legal"

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - CBS News has confirmed an Obama Administration memo authorizing drone attacks against U.S. citizens working with terrorists overseas.

The Justice Department claims the government doesn't need evidence that a specific attack is imminent -- just that the suspect is actively involved in plotting against the US. The White House responded Tuesday saying it takes seriously the responsibility to protect American citizens from terrorists.
