President Barack Obama's aggressive stance on using unmanned aerial vehicles to kill Americans suspected of being al-Qaida allies has made Democrats and Republicans nervous. Lawmakers are urging tighter oversight of the president's UAV program. "It just makes me uncomfortable that the president -- whoever it is -- is the prosecutor, the judge, the jury and the executioner, all rolled into one," said Sen. Angus King, I-Maine. "So I'm not suggesting something that would slow down response, but where there is time to go in and submit it to a third party that is a court, in confidence, and get a judgment that, yes, there is sufficient evidence here."
