President Barack Obama will discuss the legality of his administration's secret drone program and other counterterrorism practices during a speech Thursday at the National Defense University, a White House official told the Associated Press. The speech is an attempt to be more "transparent" with the public about the controversial drone program that has become the centerpiece of the White House's efforts to combat terrorism. The president also is expected to discuss efforts to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center, which he has promised to do. WRCB-TV Chattanooga has more on the story.
