Obama: ‘US prefers to detain, interrogate, and prosecute, not use drones’

(Hardly a choice of words to make the world erupt in jubilation, it would be preferable to change U.S. policy so that we don’t, or at least very rarely, have to do any of those things!)

A new face to the War on Terror was unveiled by President Obama in a major speech on America’s national defense policies. For the second time in 5 years – he again promised to try and shut Guantanamo Bay. But when it came to drone warfare, the President appeared less enthusiastic about change – promising only vague guidelines.
