Secret Deals to Expand US's Permanent Wars

As the WaPo reports (from documents published by Wikileaks), the US has made some secret deals with Ethiopia and the Republic of Seychelles to host small fleets of drones for use in counterterror operations in Somali and Yemen.

Day by day, the ability of the American people to monitor and comprehend the miltary actions launched on their behalf disappears farther over the horizon.

Sad times for American democracy.  And a disappointing policy decision from a president whose inauguration was thought to be a harbinger of transparency and honesty in the government's dealings with the American people.
