Pelosi on Informing Public About Drone Strikes on Citizens: "It Depends"

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is not sure whether the public should be told when the federal government kills an American citizen.

"Maybe. It just depends," she said in an interview with The Huffington Post this week, when asked whether the administration should acknowledge when it targets a U.S. citizen in a drone strike.

Pelosi disputed the assertion that Democrats are less critical of the drone program than they would have been if George W. Bush were still president, arguing, "Those opposed are pretty critical, and other people are just listening to see what this is and why this is necessary, because we're in a different world."

    Of all the scum in our political spectrum I find this twat one of the most annoying...

    She has the condescension of a childless aunt who scolds her sisters kids. She has none of her own but she knows EXACTLY what should be done with yours.

    because we're in a different world.

    She certainly is.
