Pelosi Says Drone Strikes on Americans Can Stay Secret
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said the White House doesn’t necessarily have to confess to killing American citizens by unarmed drones.
It all depends on the situation, she said in reply to a Huffington Post reporter who asked if President Obama’s administration should acknowledge when it targets a U.S. citizen in a drone strike, the Washington Examiner reported.
“Maybe, it just depends,” she reportedly said. “People just want to be protected.” She also said that such disclosure “depends on the timing, because that’s right — it’s all about the timing.”
