I was quoted by Reuters correspondent David Rohde in his opinion piece Sunday about drones and John O. Brennan.
In truth, the administration insistence on keeping the drone program secret fuels public suspicion. Declaring a program “covert” when it is reported on by the global media on a daily basis is increasingly absurd. As Joshua Foust, an analyst and former U.S. intelligence official, has argued, keeping the program secret cedes the debate to critics who say the strikes only kill vast numbers of civilians.
I was never an official, but that’s okay. Anyway, read the whole thing.
