Obama OKs use of armed drone aircraft in Libya

• AP
President Obama has approved the use of armed drones in Libya, authorizing U.S. airstrikes on ground forces for the first time since America turned control of the operation over to NATO April 4.

It also is the first time that drones will be used for airstrikes since the conflict began March 19, although they have routinely been flying surveillance missions, Defense Secretary Robert Gates told reporters at a Pentagon briefing Thursday.
