    The ACLU just announced this week that they will now be requesting undisclosed information on this Administration's use of Drone attacks by way of the 'Freedom of Information Act.' They say they will now challenge the Legality of such attacks which are known to have killed thousands of civilians around the World. This week this Administration announced the killing of a prominent Taliban leader in Pakistan but what they didn't announce was that this Drone attack also killed his entire family. So while the ACLU is questioning the Legality of Drone attacks,others are beginning to question the morality or immorality of such attacks as well. I would be very interested in hearing what others think on this topic. Thanks.

    What did happen to the "Anti-War" movement? Not hearing much from them these days. Where did they go? Hmm?

    If we follow the "Terrorists have rights under the Constitution" to its logical conclusion, Obama is committing cold blooded, premeditated murder against these citizens, on par with the po-leece busting down your door without a warrant and coming in with guns blazing

    Can Drone attacks really be classified as "collateral damage?" They are directly targeting an individual and his family. Drones don't seem to distinguish whether the man's family is present or not. Gets a little complicated.

    Why in the title 'obama drones". The drones have existed and have been used prior to Obama, so why associate them with him specifically

    We have killed hundreds of innocent people during this war, that were collateral damage and yes we used drones to get to these people and their families being present or at a wedding or targeting a home filled with family and friends, has not mattered.

    I dont happen to agree with this measure and believe we should NOT target the perp we are trying to get, family in tow ...it is immoral to kill an innocent person or persons....
