    I beleive my opinion has remained consistant. I am an American first and hope things turn out best for the country rather than hope for failure of some American endevor due to the politics of hte administration in charge.

    So what's the difference other than many American haters and racists now have a black president to hate?

    Are the racists ever embarrassed over being told the obvious?
    But estimated numbers have been compiled by other sources. As Klaidman points out,
    by the time Obama accepted his Nobel Peace Prize 11 months into his presidency, he'd already ordered more drone strikes than George W. Bush had in his entire presidency. By the end of 2012, he'd ordered six times as many strikes in Pakistan as Bush had

    one has to get the info from somewhere, this is CIA "denials" -google your own source then.

    again look at the hotlinks to MS sources

    So, it's about as I expected. Obama has resorted to drones more than Bush2. Which makes it abundantly clear that Bush2 was resorting to killing whole villages with indiscriminate use of cruise missiles more than using drones.

    Some haters will never admit they are driven by politics and racism.

    And no, Obama should have never won the Nobel prize when it's obvious that he was using drones or any other method to kill people, even though he was using the least destructive method available and keeping the 'collateral' killing to a minimum.

    That's some logic there.

    Irony, see above.

    you posed the hypothetical that terrorists would acquire drone technology and cause collateral damage to US civilians while pursuing legitimate targets. I pointed out how your theory was silly, being that the dominate characteristic of terrorism is to actively pursue civilian targets.

    seems a rather silly strategy to deal with a real problem

    partisan politics and the fact that Obama had high profile targets that were american citizens?
