Washington (CNN) - Amid new controversy over his administration's targeted killing of American citizens, President Barack Obama has yielded to demands from Congress to turn over to them classified Justice Department legal advice justifying the policy.
The president's move comes on the eve of confirmation hearings Thursday for his CIA director-nominee John Brennan, and complaints from senators - including several Democrats - about secrecy surrounding the drone policy.

...and nothing will come of this and Obama will take another 4 million dollar vacation.
Killing Americans without due process? Who cares, they’ve been declared enemy combatants. The Republic is dead.
We don’t know what he’s handing over but chances are it’s worthless and self-serving to his agenda. Nothing comes from this WH without a calculated bet they will reap a political reward of some sort.
I’m still pray ANONYMOUS will hack into the Hawaii Birth Cert system. Or,,better yet,,,’claim’ they have
That Obama really puts the “dope” in Rope-A-Dope. Obviously it won’t hurt him or he would just continue to refuse to hand over the goods. He’s the Teflon pResident!
What is the original source of the drone-killing memo, in the first place?
Was it leaked?
This is a first for Obummer but there can’t be one word in that white paper hurting him or any Rat, if there was it’ll blacked out.
Your cynicism and sarcasm is without peer. /s
What difference does it make?

Mods please fix the title. It should say “Brennan hearing” not “Hagel hearing”
Perhaps it was originally wrong on the CNN link but it has been corrected on CNN now.
Thanks, I alerted them as well. They were quick, it’s fixed.
It said Hagel in the original, you can still see it in the link:
Thx again! :)
Who cares? What does it matter? Screw the Rule of Law...and the Constitution. Who cares...
Amid new controversy over his administration's targeted killing of American citizens...They are Citizens In Name Only -- but that's more than some can rightfully claim.
I wish I were more savy about these things, right about now.

Double Oh 44 will handle the controversy. Confidence in Double Oh is stirred, not shaken.
“is a policy paper rather than an official legal document.”
“Memo backs U.S. using lethal force against Americans overseas”
So, the President wants it both ways. Which is it, not a legal document or it is a legal document? These lawyers always try to protect themselves by taking both sides.
