I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
Also, in your scenario, the Saudis would be working with us to find this terrorist group. But, from what I can tell, we've just put Iraq and Afganistan to work for us. That is a big problem that I have with how America views its military use. It is just "might makes right" all over the place.
If Pakistan, or any other country, wants to, they can shoot them down.
Just like we would if someone flew drones over the US and refused to stop.
robot army =
Obviously, some pretty great oversight is needed in that kind of R&D. Lockheed Martin not allowed.
Here's a clue:
LIFE IS NOT FAIR.
"Advocates of capitalism are apt to appeal to the sacred principles of liberty, which are embodied in one maxim: the fortunate must not be restrained in the exercise of tyranny over the unfortunate." - Bertrand Russell
I have never seen how Americans can rationalize the idea of shooting a drone and killing civilians in another country, because they were aiming for an enemy of the state. If the United States was the victim of this from another country, there would be severe repercussions. Why the double standard. We need to play by the rules that all countries play under.
