Strike That

Eight House Democrats, led by Rep. Barbara Lee, sent a letter to Obama on March 11 condemning secretive drone strikes. Other CBC co-signers included Reps. John Conyers, Donna Edwards and Keith Ellison. The letter accuses the administration of setting a "dangerous precedent" and an "increasing devolution of accountability, transparency, and Constitutional protections in U.S. counter-terrorism operations.”
