Criticism of drone use misses obvious benefits

info@islandpacket.comFebruary 12, 2013 

I'm wondering why anyone has issues with the use of drones.

Their use saves American lives. They can attack an enemy without the threat of losing one of our military men or women. The fact that they killed an "American" who chose al-Qaida over us doesn't concern me. A friend of my enemy is my enemy.

Defend against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. What's the problem?
