The U.S. House of Representatives intelligence committee rejected a proposal that would have required U.S. spy agencies to make an annual public accounting of the number of casualties caused by U.S. drone attacks on militants overseas. The provision approved by the Senate committee - and rejected by its House counterpart - would have required U.S. agencies every year to make public totals compiled by the U.S. government of both combatant and non-combatant deaths and injuries caused by U.S. drone strikes overseas.
