    Our overspray is redefined from pre-planned murder to they were bad guys if they are in the blast radius.

    Who needs warrants or judges anymore.

    There is a kill list?

    Even overseas, our behavior should be as if we were on our soil. Drones are a nice, easy, distant kill. Where is due process? How long until the ones flying above us are armed?

      Honest discussion about it and everything else hiding behind secrecy. Right now, you are seeing a tacit acceptance without discourse.

      I don't mind drones flying over our heads. I do mind that we are rolling them out without a discussion as a nation about what and how we use them. Should they be limited? Should evidence obtained by them looking through windows be admissible? Open it up to opinion, not force me to accept it as a new fact of life, please?
