John Yoo quoted in Mother Jones, March 7, 2013

“I think it’s right, if an American joins an enemy with which we are at war, he is, or she is, a valid target as an enemy combatant. That’s been the rule throughout our history,” Yoo said. “People in the Civil War were all American citizens, but the ones who took up arms were members of the enemy.”
