U.S. looks to target American citizen with drone strike

Despite mounting criticism of the US drone-strike program, it appears the US has selected its next target: an American citizen in an unnamed country, according to the Associated Press. The US citizen is believed to be an al-Qaeda facilitator who is actively planning attacks on Americans overseas. Officials are building a case against the suspect to show that the drone strike is legal, constitutional and necessary. RT’s Meghan Lopez looks at how many Americans have previously been targeted by US drone strikes – and why.
