Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, has been appointed to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. "I have long held great faith in our intelligence services, and I am excited at the prospect of working with them to ensure Americans' national security," Pompeo said in a statement. One of the issues that Pompeo needs to review is the Obama administration's policy on using drones to kill suspected terrorists, including American citizens living abroad. An Eagle editorial notes that there are many questions about which suspects meet the criteria and when the policy can apply.
