Obama to work with Congress on drone-strike policy

AP foreign, Friday February 15 2013

Obama says he doesn't believe a president can do whatever he wants, whenever, under the guise of counterterrorism.

And, he says it's not enough for U.S. citizens to take his word that, quote, "we're doing the right thing."
