Senate candidate Rep. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) defended the National Security Agency’s surveillance program and U.S. drone operations against criticism from some members of his own party during a speech to the American Enterprise Institute on Tuesday. “When an American drone unexpectedly brings justice to Anwar al-Awlaki, it is a powerful reminder to all terrorists their safe haven may not be so safe after all,” said Cotton. “Far from restraining the use of drones, then, through unwise and unconstitutional mechanisms, we should continue and probably expand their use in our war against radical Islam.”
