The Global War on Terror (GWOT) now seems to be being fought mainly with drones. I oppose their use because too many innocents die with a few of the guilty, and that causes more to join with al-Qaeda in opposition to the US. If I were in President’s Obama‘s shoes, I am not sure what I would do. He is responsible for protecting the US, and he faces political pressures from both the Right and the Left. Those on the Right such as John McCain and John Bolton favor settling all international disputes by the use of American military force. And some on the Left oppose the use of force in almost all cases.
