    True leftists? I dont criticize for it anymore than I did Bush and I didn't criticize Bush for the strikes. Drone strikes are effective, targetted and to this date far more accurate than the rest of the US military in regards to unwanted casualties; American or other.

    Well, it's always good to be certain before you start your mourning period.

    No, almost everybody on the Far Right complains about it. I'm thinking they would rather have the terrorists live than have Obama get credit for killing them. Almost un-american.

    True Leftists? That would be those on the Far Left of the political spectrum, who disapprove of every military action undertaken by the United States - especially the successful ones. Those true leftists?

    Sounds like he's getting them pretty well dialed in.
    What I find fascinating about this is how the Far Left and the Far Right are in unison on this. They both hate Obama for killing terrorists, although for different reasons.

    The only thing I can think of, and this ISN'T defending Obama, is that the terrorists killed by these drone strikes seem to be heads of Al-Qaeda who are without a doubt terrorists, while many of those in Guantanamo Bay are very well possibly innocent and not dangerous.

    Perhaps you could list for us the actions undertaken by the U.S. Military that met with your approval. Certainly killing Al Quaeda terrorists doesn't seem to be one, considering how all of you true leftists wring your hands with dispair every time it happens.

    One way to stop this would be for the Pakistani government to kick all of the Al Quaeda terrorists the hell out of their country. However, since a sizable percentage of the Pakistani intelligence corps activily supports them, this would be difficult.
