    Pakistanis told Hillary Clinton they are upset with the U.S. military using drones to hunt down terrorists.

    Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says she has no problem with Attorney General Eric Holder's decision to try in New York City five alleged terrorists involved in the Sept. 11 attacks.
    A former senator from New York, Clinton tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that she understands that trials will be a painful experience for the families of those who died.

    She also said she does not think holding the trials in New York will put the city at any heightened risk of attack -- and she said Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly also agree.
    Holder says he plans to bring the professed mastermind of the attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and four others detained at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to trial in a courtroom near the site of the World Trade Center.
