When The Washington Post's Dana Priest first revealed (in passing) back in January that the Obama administration had compiled a hit list of American citizens targeted for assassination, she wrote that "as of several months ago, the CIA list included three U.S. citizens."
In April, both the Post and the NYT confirmed that the administration had specifically authorized the assassination of Anwar al-Awlaki.
Today, The Washington Times' Eli Lake has an interview with Obama's top Terrorism adviser John Brennan in which Brennan strongly suggests that the number of U.S. citizens targeted for assassination could actually be "dozens":
I don't like the idea of targeting citizens for assassination, but you neglected to mention that the people who are targeted are providing significant aid to terrorists against the U.S. I have more sympathy for the hundreds (or thousands?) of citizens on death row in this country than for the likes of al-Awlaki.
