Report: CIA Seeks Approval to Expands Its Drone Fleet

October 18, 2012

The CIA is seeking approval from the White House to expand its inventory of armed drones by as many as 10, a "move that would extend the spy service's decade-long transformation into a paramilitary force," The Washington Post reports, citing American officials.

If approved, the additional drones will allow the agency to maintain its abilities to attack al-Qaida targets in Pakistan and Yemen while addressing emerging al-Qaida threats elsewhere, according to The Post.
