White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters Thursday that the Obama administration will not be releasing any more information about the controversial use of drones to kill American citizens.
Carneys remarks, via the White Houses transcript of the off-camera press gaggle:
This is not an open-ended process. This is a specific and unique accommodation in this circumstance. The fact is, when it comes to public disclosure, we have been not with the kind of attention thats been given it this week but we have been publicly discussing these matters at the highest levels of government for the very reason that Ive given, which is the President understands that these are core issues about how we conduct ourselves in war, how the President of the United States any President balances his constitutional obligation to protect America and American citizens, and his obligation to do so in a manner that is lawful under the Constitution and reflects our values.
The President takes these issues very seriously, and he believes that the conversation about this is valid and that the questions about it are legitimate. And thats why he has been leading this process internally to as has John Brennan, by the way to provide public information as much as possible, mindful of the fact that we are talking about here very sensitive matters, and that these kinds of things theyre classification information is classified for very legitimate reasons that go right to our national security interest.
But within that, there is an effort underway to provide Congress information those who have oversight over these matters classified information as well as unclassified with the white paper and the public information as much as possible.(continued)

Going dark with the killing machines now. 0bama likes the wet work.
“What are they hiding?” is what Chuck Schumer and Teddy Kennedy would be thundering on the Senate floor if Bush did this.
This is dated February 7, 2014.
Not for nothing, 2ndDiv, but those people were under the boot heel for a long time; it may be that we are just going under it,
3 more long freaking years, how much more destruction can this one man wring?
Even the “liberals” are getting wise to him now.
It may prove too wise too late.
“0bama likes the wet work.”
It’s not very “wet”, at least from our point of view.
Still relevant and wasn’t posted.
Bump for later...
by the way, you know Obama has a list :)
This is the most dishonest administration in history is what it is. among other things.
Well, you’re right about that... remains relevant.
And the militant Left that insisted Bush==Hitler remain silent. They do not protest Obama’s wars.
They are unprincipled Stalinist liars.
Yeah, protect the citizens by killing them. I guess we'll never hear about it when the drone strikes upon citizens commence over American soil.
Of course, if it's
transparent that means you can't see it, right?
Yes, the liberals are wising up but according to the report this week they’d still vote for him again even though they regret it. How does this make any sense? A bunch of masochists? Stockholm Syndrome? Hard to understand!
