John Brennan spoke about the use of drone strikes against terrorists. He called the strikes “legal, ethical and wise” using the highest standards to best try to limit loss of civilian life. Among the issues he addressed were the precedent set by the decision to employ drones, the decision-making process, and counterterrorism strategy since the death of Osama bin Laden. He also announced that some of the documents recovered from Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan a year earlier would be published online by the U.S. Military Academy’s Terrorism Center. He responded to questions from the audience. close
