Bill Press asked Jay Carney about the existence of a memo that Justice gave the White House authorizing the assassination of Anwar al-Awlaki, and if other Americans are being targeted.

Carney: “Bill, as you know I’m not going to discuss matters of that nature. I can simply say as a general matter of fact that Mr. Awlaki was an operation leader of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). He was directly involved in plots to perform terror that would have resulted in terrorist acts against the United States, and, you know, it is, I think it is important to remember that when we assess the overall question.

Press: “Were there any other Americans or targets on that list?”

Carney: “Again I’m not going to, as others who are here when this happened, I’m just not going to engage in a conversation about that.”
