Securing America: Future of the Drone Program [VIDEO]
President Obama made two key national security nominations this week with the announcement that former Sen. Chuck Hagel is being tapped for Defense Secretary and John Brennan is being nominated for CIA Director. But what do these say about the President’s future security policies?
FOX’s James Rosen reports from the State Department in our ongoing series on national security:
In nominating counterterrorism adviser John Brennan to become Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, President Obama is effectively doubling down on the controversial drone program in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen. And his Press Secretary, Jay Carney, on Tuesday defended against claims from the affected countries and civil liberties groups, who charge the strikes too often kill innocent people.
(Carney) “We endeavor to reduce civilian casualties as much as possible, and I think that the broader record here of success in taking the fight al-Qaeda is one that has made the United States safer.”
Already this year, at least six drone strikes have been conducted against Taliban and al-Qaeda figures.
At the State Department, James Rosen, FOX News Radio.
