Before any strike is taken, there must be near-certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured — the highest standard we can set.
—President Barack Obama, May 23, 2013
Somehow we’re still not winning hearts and minds with our drone attacks. Here’s the story of last month’s attack on a Yemini wedding party. According to the article we didn’t even apologize, although the U.S. is investigating the incident. Is it any wonder why some people don’t like us? And that some people vow revenge? Even though our drones are killing Al Qaeda members, including leaders, are we losing more than we are gaining?
