FILE - In this May 15, 2013, file photo, Attorney General Eric Holder gestures while testifying on Capitol Hill in Washington. Four American citizens have been killed in drone strikes since 2009, Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday, May 22, 2013. Holder said that in conducting U.S. counterterrorism operations against al-Qaida and its associated forces, the government has targeted and killed one American citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki. Al-Awlaki, a radical Muslim cleric, was killed in a drone strike in September 2011 in Yemen. The administration released the information the day before President Barack Obama is scheduled to make a major speech on national security. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)
