    How do we confirm these drone Kills?.
    Do these drones do a Body check, or body count like a real live soldier does ?.
    How can we positively indentify an enemy kill?.
    It could have been collateral damage, or a civilian killed.?

    the cameras on these drones have enough resolution to count the hairs on a housefly's ass....they saw a face ran a face recognition program and identified the terrorist...then blew his ass up into little pieces...

    Ohh every time we shoot someone with a drone we get some high up bad guys.
    Just the way the military operates.

    Just like our patriot missles performed so well in the first gulf war. NOT!
