U.S. arming Italian drones

The U.S. may soon be arming Italy's Reaper drone fleet.

The White House gave Congress an unusually long period to review the sale of weapons to Italy but no objections were raised, and members of both parties say it is unlikely that will change.

Many experts are noting this opens the U.S. arming all its NATO allies' drone fleets, as Italy is only the second country to receive such technology, after Britain.

Some critics of the move say U.S. should not be sharing its technology.
