Graham insists he did not reveal classified drone info

(CNN) - A U.S. senator insists he did not reveal any secrets when he publicly mentioned the number of people killed in drone strikes overseas.

Republican Lindsey Graham told an audience in Easley, South Carolina, on Tuesday that the little-discussed drone program had killed 4,700 people, according to a report by Easley Patch website editor Jason Evans.

    Lindsey Graham couldn't get a security clearance if he was a low-ranking person assigned at any of our war-fighting commands. What does that say about our Republican's in the Senate?

    I think there's a nice retirement home near Sarasota Fla for both Lindsey Graham and John McCain.

    Rick Scott welcomes you , he now supports Obamacare !

    This guy and his friends will do anything to discredit the President. Hate is a powerful force they are inhibited by it and cannot see the unintended consequence of their action.

    Maybe we should get a committee together to interrogate them and their motives. They seem to have alot of guestions when our President does or say something.....

    oh mjs.lindsay is back home. Please somebody give her some mint tea and a fan.
    This guy is so ridiculous that if it wasn't he is taking the country down it would be funny.
    BTW – I am all for drones as it keeps our troops from being killed. If you are an American who joins a terrorist group you are no longer consider an American but a traitor. Good riddance to you and good luck with those "virgins".
