Yielding to an angry congress, President Barack Obama has agreed to hand over classified documents, which he says justify his policy of ordering targeted killings of suspected terrorists. U.S. lawmakers have been demanding the files for years, but the President had staunchly refused. Recently however, some senators hinted they would block his nominee for CIA chief from taking office. John Brennan – the man behind the U.S. drone programme – is to face the Senate at his confirmation hearing on Thursday. And, as RT’s Gayane Chichakyan reports, his confirmation might broaden the horizons, for America’s drone fleets.
