Default Al Qaeda meets without US interference...

I sat and watched a newscast this am that talked about a large Al Qaeda meeting in February an area which had been targeted by drones previously and Al Qaeda leaders were in attendence. Why the US surveillance satellites didn't pick up this meeting is one question? The second question is why no drone attacks, these armed Al Qaeda are the enemy of the US? Finally, do the Al Qaeda leaders know that President Obama is afraid to order drone attacks for fear of upsetting liberals and mid-term elections.

Wiping out Al Qaeda leaders would seem to be more beneficial than throwing American troops into Syria. Or having to fight Al Qaeda trained American citizens when they return from Syria.

What an interesting false choice. Let the record show that we haven't "thrown American troops into Syria."

Default Drones striking al Qeda. About time Obama showed some chuzpah

Finally, the drones are being used in Yemen to get at al Qeda. Now they should be used on the al Qeda in Syria.

Maybe drones should be used in the USA when the KKK is having their meetings.

Default Before drones are used on Americans you have to get court order

Court has to approve drone attack on any Americans and the way the courts work with all the appeals the KKK would have met and gone on to live. Plus the AG would probably tell the courts, "You don't want to go there."

Why is it that after the rubber-stamp history of certain courts lately (see: eavesdropping), I take little comfort in knowing that a court has to approve drone attacks on Americans? You don't believe for a minute, do you, that any court proceeding involving sending drones to knock off our countrymen within our borders would be carried out in the sunshine and with standard procedures?
