Well, maybe you should be drumming up more outrage against Obama, then.Actually the reason it raises terrorist is from killing innocents, not terrorists. When we drone strike peoples grandmas and children it makes people in the region flock to terrorists groups.

The CIA study observes that the US-led coalition in Afghanistan made "a sustained effort since 2001 to target Taliban leaders", but "Afghan government corruption and lack of unity, insufficient strength of Afghan and NATO security forces, and the country's endemic lawlessness have constrained the effectiveness of these counter-insurgency elements".
"Senior Taliban leaders' use of sanctuary in Pakistan has also complicated the HVT effort," the CIA says. "Moreover, the Taliban has a high overall ability to replace lost leaders, a centralised but flexible command and control overlaid with egalitarian Pashtun structures, and good succession planning and bench strength, especially at the middle levels."
Fifteen years of continuous warfare, hundreds of thousands of lives claimed and they are NOW beginning to think maybe they have not been very effective?
I wonder too, if the deliberate failure to share this kind of intelligence with allies, "NoForm", has help and abetted the "lack of unity" and/or whether the lives of allied troops have not been jeopardized by not sharing it.
You keep secrets from your enemy, not your friends. I will never again support Canadian support for a US military operation.
