The risks of the C.I.A.’s Predator drones : The New Yorker
stuff like this is totally inexcusable to me though. the people responsible for that should have been charged
i do agree with the results against top people in the groups though
really glad I read that article. talks about everything from legal issues involving the drones all the way to the positive and negative effects they are having on the war effort.
It must suck being a terrorist
I've decided to coin a new term for innocents killed during war: Collateral Damage. Think it'll catch on?
9/11/01 launched the "seek and destroy" aspect of the Predator program.
It w/be interesting to see how the nano-drones play out.
if you read the article many people have been killed by mistake that were provably not terrorists. this has been cleaned up though with the use of the drones in the last couple years and the multiple layers of certainty needed before firing.
the nano-drones scare teh shit out of me. cia will have killers the size of a quarter that can kill anyone, anywhere in the world. knowing their history of non-cooperation with legitimate usa oversight, I really doubt this program will be used properly.
Progress. Hope the terrorists sleep well knowing whats coming after them.
