    What happens to us as a people when we can kill endlessly, quietly, and for free?  Why does al Qaeda in Yemen have far more support today than they did when the drone campaign started?  Even if you don't care about the morality, it doesn't work. We are creating "terrorists" faster than we are killing them.

    It needs to end.  There might be very particular situations where a drone attack could be justified, but it cannot be routine, and it is particularly dangerous to hand over entire wars (those in Yemen, Somalia, and elsewhere) to a classified program.  The people being hit know full well where the attacks are; the only purpose the classification serves is to hide the war from the American people who are supposedly in charge, and the Congress that supposedly has the war power.
