    Holder's first letter really did address the question - by the examples given, the Al-Alwaki killing wouldn't cut it stateside.  There's a paradox in that the biggest opponents and biggest defenders of the drone stuff on the Republican side both seem to want interpret public law and interpretive pronouncement as broadly as possible - or more - for vastly different reasons.  A broader law is easier to both demagogue and to exploit, but not really sustainably over the longer term.  

    Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
