Edward-Isaac Dovere: Explaining the Obama Drone Program
POLITICO White House editor Edward-Isaac Dovere, recently spoke with us about the controversial Obama drone program. Dovere touched on how the Obama administration has changed the definition of “imminent” when talking about attacks. He also looked at the role of Congress in the program.
“The Obama administration has made clear that they are going forward with the drone strike program in a way that doesn’t require them to give any information to the members of the Senate or House,” Dovere said.
On Congress, Dovere commented “They can’t even tell if there is something they should be having oversight of in a different way or that they should be objecting to because they don’t know what’s going on.”
