CIA To Stay In Charge of Deadly Drone Strikes

REAPER DRONE

(FEDERALJACK)   A US drone strike in Yemen has taken the life of another civilian, according to Reuters. This latest death, a month after a drone killed 15 members of a Yemeni wedding convoy, comes just as the US Congress is debating a spending bill that contains hidden details of the future of the US drone program. A secret provision in the $1.1 trillion, 1,500-page spending bill passed by the House on Wednesday keeps lethal counterterrorism operations under the umbrella of the CIA, instead of shifting control to the Pentagon, which would provide more transparency.
