I saw this and I'm like this is what I said more than once in the water boarding threads. Some time has past and the author makes a great point that it is way easier to kill someone by drone than it is to interrogate them. :confused3: David Ignatius - Our default is killing terrorists by drone attack. Do you care? David makes a few good points in the article if anyone cares to read it. One thing i don't hear is people claiming that drone strikes create terrorists which is something we heard often during the Bush years. I think logic dictates that the innocent women and children killed do create future terrorists and the killings themselves have to help their recruiting. Surely there is no one good answer and i'm not saying there is a decent answer. well i shouldn't say that either because if it were up to me I'd leave the tribal areas alone, i'd cut a deal with the Taliban and I'd save someone's father from coming home in a box ... dead from no really good reason. let the Taliban have the country and we can then shoot weed killer drones that kill the poppy plants ... they would beg for us to come back.
