    So, do you accept news reports that civilians have been killed by Obama administration's drone attacks? Does it bother you? Make you stop and be certain of your position? No?

      You don't know what my position is, so why do you continue to assume to it?  The only thing I've said thus far is that I think this program is shady, that's it.

        That's not really true, is it?

        You revealed more than you intended, that much is obvious.

        Now you're backpedaling quite furiously.

          From the get-go you've accused me of being some heartless, mindless bastard because I think the over the top rhetoric you used and what is used in this diary is completely stupid.  But somehow you've managed to twist that in me supporting something I've never mentioned supporting, and now I'm "backpedaling" because you're assuming what my position is...  This is so comical.
