The controversy over drones and their use by the U.S. government in targeted killings continues. President Obama signaled last spring that he would shift control of the drone program from the CIA to the Pentagon. But the move is being met with resistance by Congress, which is trying to block the transfer of control. We'll talk with Eric Schmitt, national security correspondent for the New York Times, about the hot-button issue of drones.

Guests:

Eric Schmitt, senior writer and national security correspondent for the New York Times; and co-author of "Counterstrike: The Untold Story of America's Secret Campaign Against Al Qaeda"
