A Truth Journal: Who Should Be In Charge of Those Drones Bombing Terrorists: CIA or Pentagon?: From Denny: Can it be the CIA numbers more poor judgment cowboys than the Pentagon? It sure looks like President Obama seems to think so over the objections of the Senators who overseer the intelligence community and the drone program. These senators are arguing in favor of keeping the current two-pronged version of the drone program with the CIA in addition to the Pentagon.
From Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, expresses little confidence the Defense Department (DOD) would exercise the same restraint with the controversial drone program that the CIA has exhibited admirably.
And Sen. Feinstein boldly stated this to the Defense News, "We've watched the intelligence aspect of the drone program, how they function, the quality of the intelligence, watching the [CIA] agency exercise patience and discretion. The military [armed drone] program has not done that nearly as well."
