Panetta: Drone strike decisions don't come lightly

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says decisions to strike potential terrorist targets with unmanned drones don't "come lightly."


Panetta says those who authorize the drone strikes make sure they "are focused on somebody who is... a direct threat to the United States." In an interview released Sunday by NBC, he describes it an "intricate process" of establishing targets, going through legal requirements and trying to limit collateral damage. (AP)
