Obama: Drones on a ‘Tight Leash’

President Obama would like to use the Google+ hangout to set the record straight: drones are not bad! On Monday, the president fielded questions in a video chat with Americans. Obama called a recent New York Times piece about surveillance drones in Iraq “overwritten,” and said that drones have not caused an unusual number of civilian casualties since they are a “targeted, focused effort.” The president added that the drone force was kept on a really “tight leash.”
