Sen. Udall Praises Deal On Secret Drone Memos

DENVER (AP) – Colorado Democrat Mark Udall, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, is praising the White House decision to let committee members see secret legal opinions that justify the use of lethal drone strikes against terror suspects.

The committee sought the documents before voting on whether to confirm John Brennan as CIA director.

Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, chairwoman of the committee, said Tuesday the White House had agreed to give committee members access to the documents.

Udall says he’ll now vote to confirm Brennan. Udall’s spokesman, Mike Saccone, says the White House decision on the documents was a factor in Udall’s decision.

Udall had signaled in a Feb. 7 hearing that he favored Brennan, telling him, “I look forward to working with you.”
