Graham Denies Leaking Classified Info at Easley Rotary
After disclosing the number of people killed by U.S. drone strikes, Sen. Lindsey Graham says information was not a military secret.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC-R) is under scrutiny after comments he made at an Easley Rotary Club meeting Tuesday.
Graham told Easley Rotarians that he supported the US drone program, and it is his belief that it should be able to continue without judicial oversight.
“We've killed 4,700,” Graham said. “Sometimes you hit innocent people, and I hate that, but we're at war, and we've taken out some very senior members of Al-Qaeda.”
On Wednesday, Graham told CNN's Dana Bash that the figure he quoted was based on media reports, not U.S. Intelligence.
