Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) today released the following statement on the Administration's clarification of the use of drones on U.S. soil:
"I applaud the Administration for clarifying that drone strikes on non-combatant American citizens on U.S. soil are not and will not be authorized.
"I understand firsthand the value of using counter-terrorism warfare tactics and strategies overseas in dealing with 21st century threats. But these tactics should never be used against our own citizens here at home. Just as U.S. law enforcement strategies do not apply in war with a foreign enemy, drone strikes and other counter-terrorism tactics should not be targeting non-combatant U.S. citizens."
