FILE - In this Dec. 11, 2008 file photo Defense Secretary Robert Gates stands by an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) at Kandahar Air Field in Kandahar, Afghanistan. Gates, a former defense secretary and spy chief, is backing lawmakers’ proposal to form a special court to review President Barack Obama’s deadly drone strikes against Americans linked to al-Qaida. Gates said Obama’s use of the unmanned and lethal drones follows tight rules, but he shares lawmakers’ wariness over using drones to target al-Qaida operatives and allies from the sky.
