WATCH: Megyn Kelly Debates Secretive Drone Program With Judge Napolitano

Judge Andrew Napolitano joined Megyn Kelly on America Live this afternoon to discuss the recent revelation by former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs that he was told to never admit to the existence of the CIA drone program.

“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. You’re not even to discuss that it exists," Gibbs said Sunday on MSNBC.

That admission has raised questions again over the use of the top-secret strikes against terror suspects abroad.

Kelly asked the judge just how transparent the government is supposed to be when it comes to targeting terror suspects and potentially revealing secrets "that could get troops killed or Americans killed."

Napolitano responded by saying we "shouldn't be in the business of killing."

Kelly then emphasized that she only meant killing terrorists.

"He shouldn't be in the business killing people in friendly territories," said Napolitano. "These are people that could easily be arrested or people who could be taken care of by the government of the country in which they're located. But when the president thinks he can willy-nilly use drones however, whenever, and against whomever he wishes and then lie about it, we have a problem."
