Joe Biden said Tuesday he had made up his mind on how to respond to the drone strike in northeastern Jordan near the Syrian border that killed three American soldiers and wounded more than 40. The U.S. blamed the drone attack on Iran-backed militants. On Thursday, CBS News reported that plans for days of strikes had been approved. Biden's top diplomat, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, said on Monday the U.S. response "could be multi-leveled, come in stages, and be sustained over time."
