  •  There needs to be transparency and accountability (0+ / 0-)

    in the use of drones (just as in trials of alleged terrorists) and law enforcement is preferable to assassination, but I would be willing to make an exception for those cases where that is not possible. Such as in a lawless no-man's land, where the nominal authorities are either unwilling or unable to exercise their authority. Again, only if there is oversight. The current situation is unacceptable.

    I have also been assuming that drones are more precise and inflict fewer civilian casualties than the alternative, but I'm beginning to wonder about this as well.
