The Obama administration announced Monday it would for the first time release tallies of the number of people it believes it has killed in drone strikes in countries that lie outside of conventional war zones. Lisa Monaco, President Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, said the report would be released in the coming weeks.

Lisa Monaco: "I can announce today that in the coming weeks the administration will publicly release an assessment of combatant and noncombatant casualties resulting from strikes taken outside areas of active hostilities since 2009."
