I respectfully submit that I really don't think the Department of Defense is in any position to execute the kinds of covert surgical operations that the INTELLIGENCE community has historically carried out in the defense of our country. It takes special kind of people to crawl in the sewers where our adversaries lie. My concern is that we don't have enough boots on the ground to get into those sewers. The drones are a necessary evil, and I suggest that you leave them right where they are and continue with your political posturing.

Right, just like his campaign promise to protect whistleblowers and support transparency...

More lies from Obama and the ZOG (shsssh its really JOG). This may stop the CIA from using money allocated from Congress but it won't stop them from funding their drone use via their drug trafficking activities!

So does that mean drone strikes are done without congress or obama knowledge right now.

Sen. Graham's shrug at the innocent getting aught in the crossfire comes across as callous.
