The government uses drone to target Pakistani “militants” but ends up blowing up tons of civilians. They also do this in Yemen. Another issue is when the current administration would not rule out the use of drones on US citizens in the United States without a trial. This is what lead to my man filibustering.
The government already has killed US citizens in other countries without giving them a trial.
There’s nothing wrong with using drones in warfare, precisely, against active combatants. When they’re used as an abuse of government power, that’s when I have an issue.
