Wasn't too sure where to put this question, so if it's more suited in another area, please could a mod move it? Thank you.
Watching Fox News just now, they were talking about the siege involving the five year old boy this week. A few details were given about the rescue,
like the fact that a surveillance drone was deployed over the farm, and that a mock up bunker was made to practice the rescue.
They also said that the Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, also gave authorization for certain "rescue equipment" to be used.
What could that mean?
I know that in the UK in the past, certain things have been run past the Home Office first, such as the Iranian Embassy siege assault and the likes,
but as far as equipment being used, i'm curious what could warrant Sec Of Def approval?
