ACLU, NYT seeks info on targeted drone strikes on Americans (VIDEO)

Some aspects of the US government's once-secret drone program have come to light, including the targeted killing of three American citizens in Yemen in 2011. Samir Khan, Anwar al-Awlaki and his son Abdulrahman were all killed by CIA-led drone strikes within two weeks of each other.

Now the American Civil Liberties Union and the New York Times are in court seeking more details on the memos that led to the drone strikes. RT's Meghan Lopez has more information on the legal justification the US government is using.
