        the judiciary doesn't reach into the battlefield and oversight from other branches is usually limited.  that said, are there any checks or procedures that could be put in place that may minimize the lck of oversight?  drone warfare is popular with Americans, so its going to continue; the only question now is whether it continues in its current shape or whether its subject to some sort of oversight.
