His remarks came in a major speech that addressed his foreign policy and national security decisions at Washington DC’s National Defense University. The speech comes one day after the Administration admitted in a letter to Congress that it has killed four US citizens since the President took office in 2009, though only one—Anwar al Awlaki—was “specifically targeted.” On Capitol Hill, FSRN’s Alice Ollstein has more."
