Obama Proposes Sale of Spy Drones to South Korea

Reuters reports that Obama has formally proposed the sale of four spy drones to Seoul in a claimed attempt to allow South Korea to defend itself from the North. The move, according to Reuters, has been met with considerable controversy, however.

The Pentagon’s Defense Security Cooperation Agency reports that the drones to be sold are remotely piloted Northrop Grumman Corp RQ-4 “Global Hawks” with advanced surveillance capabilities. Reuters states that the price tag on the sale is $1.2 billion.
