The Obama administration is struggling over a decision to attack a U.S. citizen working overseas in the service of al Qaeda, according to The Daily Beast.
CIA drones have been monitoring him but cannot legally strike until the Justice Department builds a case, which it hasn't yet.
The citizen is in a country that does not permit U.S. military action, and under President Obama's new policy, U.S. citizens suspected of terrorism who are abroad can be killed by the military, but not CIA drones, The Daily Beast reports.
