(WASHINGTON TIMES) Robert Gibbs, President Obama’s former press secretary, said during a Sunday television talk show appearance that he was told to deny the existence of the United States’ drone program when he first came on board the administration.

“When I went through the process of becoming press secretary, one of the first things they told me was, you’re not even to acknowledge the drone program,” he said on Sunday’s MSNBC’s “Up With Chris Hayes,” as Politico reports. “You’re not even to discuss that it exists.”

He called that policy “crazy” at the time, he said.
