    that is an amazingly nuanced report, considering it's done by the CIA, when the CIA was responsible for the "kill list" ( Brennan) brought daily to Obama.

    Report doesn't say completely "counter-productive" -I read it if it aggravates the situation it is, but there are real uses for droning.
    Signature strikes by far kill the most civilians, but targeting errors have been problematic like various wedding partys.
    I think the classic screw was the one in Yemen. Those should be banned at least.
    fr link:
    may increase support for the insurgents, particularly if these strikes enhance insurgent leaders' lore, if non-combatants are killed in the attacks, if legitimate or semi-legitimate politicians aligned with the insurgents are targeted, or if the government is already seen as overly repressive or violent

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Indefinite detention without trial until a nebulous war with no actual ending is over?

    That's a thing you're ok with?

    Not if prisoners are going to continue to be released and Obama keeps retreating from the trouble spots of the world. Iraq was 'stable' until he pulled the troops. Now it's a mess and many thousands of people have died as a consequence.

    The free world can only hope that the US elects a more knowledgeable person as their next President. I'm sure the leaders of the democracies will all cooperate if they get someone in there who is competent and trustworthy.

    Why not? That happens in every war.

    Even before Obama terrorism was on the rise...... How do you win a "war on terror" when the only thing its seems to be doing is increasing terror?

    This war doesn't have an end to it, nor is there a real definition of who the enemy is.

    I don't have that much faith in the government. That's why I demand it present evidence when it wants to lock somebody up forever.

    No, terror was not on the rise. Do you not recall that barrack Obama said he was leaving behind a "stable and sovereign Iraq"? Obama in 2011: ‘We’re Leaving Behind A Stable And Self-Reliant Iraq’

    Terror has been increasing since Obama pulled the American might out of Iraq, and of course the same thing will happen in Afghanistan. There is only one way to explain Barrack Obama's foreign policy, and his releasing of prisoners, is that he really is a Muslim. Do you see another explanation?

    That's probably because barrack Obama is one f the few people in the world who doesn't know, or won't say, who the enemy is. Do you know?

    Your lack of faith in this present administration is well founded.
